IGY picks up National Harbor

Oct 24, 2016 by Triton Staff

Ft. Lauderdale-based IGY Marinas has taken over the management of National Harbor Marina in Washington, DC.

“National Harbor has become a major tourism destination and hot bed for new development projects, making it the perfect location for IGY Marinas to expand its presence in the area,” said Tom Mukamal, CEO of IGY Marinas. “National Harbor and the Washington, D.C., region were high on the list, and due to the success of the development in the area, the marina provides great potential as a yachting destination.”

As part of the integration process, IGY Marinas will team up with National Harbor Marina to begin implementing the company’s services and operations. IGY Marinas will also leverage existing relationships within its network, host special events and conduct philanthropic initiatives to raise the maritime profile of the marina to a new level.
