“I am beaming with pride for the Yacht Haven Grande team, along with the other IGY family members across the globe, for being the absolute best in the world and for delivering consistently exceptional service to our superyacht owners, guests, captains and crew,” stated Kenny Jones, executive vice president of global operations at IGY Marinas, based in Fort Lauderdale.
“Our team at IGY and Yacht Haven Grande have worked incredibly hard to make this marina the Caribbean home for yacht owners, crews and guests,” said Phil Blake, the marina’s general manager. “To be selected for this accolade by the captains and officers of some of the world’s most notable yachts is truly an honor; to receive the Towergate TYHA award over two consecutive years – and for the third time – is a testament to our state-of-the-art superyacht facility, but moreover to the amazing IGY personalities from operations to our cooperate staff who all strive to make every visit a secure, memorable and fun one. I couldn’t be prouder.”
