IGY lineup now includes Costa Rica

ADVERTISEMENT

Fort Lauderdale-based IGY Marinas has expanded its presence in Latin America with Golfito Marina Village in Costa Rica.

The 50-slip facility, owned by Hacienda El Dorado S.A., marks the fourth marina to join IGY’s lineup in this region, following Marina Cabo San Lucas in Mexico, Red Frog Beach Island Marina in Panama, and Marina Santa Marta in Colombia.

As of Nov. 1, the company will oversee all marina operations, management and branding initiatives.

The facility, situated on the Pacific Ocean and outside of the hurricane zone, is the only approved drop-off and pick-up zone for yacht transport ships on the west coast of Central and South America. It’s a private, natural deep-water marina that can accommodate vessels up to 500 feet (152m), with a  dedicated 265-foot (80m) fuel dock capable of dispensing ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel at 200 GPM, as well as premium fuel. Plans for the marina include an expansion to about 135 slips and a full-service yard.

Andy Caballero will oversee all marina management and operations. An industry veteran, Caballero joined the IGY team in 2006. Prior to his new role at Golfito Marina Village, he served as marina manager at Simpson Bay Marina in St. Maarten.
