IGY’s Yacht Haven Grande earns platinum ranking

ADVERTISEMENT

Just two years after being hammered by two Category 5 hurricanes, IGY’s Yacht Haven Grande Marina, on St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands, has been rated by The Yacht Harbour Association as Gold Anchor Platinum – the highest accreditation offered by the organization.

To achieve the rating, the marina had to pass an external audit encompassing design, operations, policies, procedures, communications and destination integration, as well as an independent review of its customer service standards.

Four marinas have been awarded the platinum level designation by TYHA.

“This notable achievement is a testament to the hard work of our employees, supported by the corporate team, and our unwavering commitment to the economic growth of St. Thomas, USVI,” stated Phil Blake, general manager of Yacht Haven Grande Marina, in a press release.

IGY Marinas is an international marina network that includes 17 marinas in 10 countries: the U.S., Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Turks & Caicos, St. Maarten, St. Lucia, France and Italy. With 400 purpose-built slips accommodating superyachts from 80 feet (24m) to 800 feet (243m), IGY’s marinas serve more than 1,800 superyachts per year, according to the company.
