The world’s only global superyacht marina company, Island Global Yachting (IGY), is thrilled to announce it has been selected by Briland Club to manage their superyacht marina project on Harbour Island in The Bahamas. IGY is working alongside Briland Club to bring a brand new full-service superyacht marina to one of the Caribbean’s most exclusive and sought-after destinations. The marina, which is part of the first phase of the luxury development, will seek to provide leading marina facilities and services with the charm and character for which The Bahamas is known.
IGY brings decades of expertise in superyacht marina construction and operation to the 27-acre Briland Club, located on the island that Forbes Magazine calls the “crown jewel of the Caribbean.” Upon completion, the Briland Club superyacht marina will feature hurricane rated floating docks, in-slip fueling, power, high speed internet access and many more attributes honed to benefit the international maritime community. Upon completion of the project, marina guests will enjoy on-site dining options and have full access to Briland Club amenities including wellness centre, spa, golf simulators, and nature trails.
A pre-opening event to showcase the marina prior to its official opening will be held July 4th weekend. Attending yacht guests and crews will be able to enjoy Harbour Island and its world famed pink sand beaches, downtown area, and local charm. Vessels are expected to have access to water and power while docked, and the marina will have dockhands and activities on-site to assist. To request an invitation to the pre-opening showcase, captains can reach out to [email protected].
Commonly referred to as the “Nantucket of the Caribbean”, guests are drawn to Harbour Island by its dazzling array of water activities and natural beauty with Briland Club adding a uniquely refined luxury experience.
“The Briland Residences and Marina is an outstanding addition to the yachting and tourism product offered in The Bahamas and IGY is proud to share this exciting, new superyacht destination to our thousands of global customers”, says Eric Simonton, IGY’s EVP of Real Estate. “This quintessential yachting destination is sure to far exceed expectations.”
Each year IGY’s clients cruise the waters off Harbour Island, and with two marinas in South Florida (Yacht Haven Grande, Miami and One Island Park, Miami Beach), the IGY team is attuned to marketing the newest and best superyacht destinations to the largest superyachts in the world.
“Briland Club will create incredible experiences for the global luxury market, and with the expertise of a company well versed in superyacht marina development, operations, marketing, and community involvement, we are excited to have IGY on our team,” states Michael Leemhuis, President of Briland
The marina within Briland Club is expected to accommodate a range of vessels from 70 to over 250 feet and is steps away from the storied Haunted House, historic Dunmore Town, and beautifully iconic “pastel painted cottages.” Direct access to the famous Pink Sand Beach offers a host of recreational opportunities within walking distance of the marina including some of the best spots in The Bahamas for snorkelling and diving.
The marina is targeted to open Q3 of 2021 with project completion planned for Q3 2023.
