Island Global Yachting (IGY Marinas) has just announced the continued expansion of its global marina destination network with the addition of St. Katharine Docks Marina (SKD Marina), London, England. The international marina operator welcomes this 5 Gold Anchor, 185-slip facility, which provides luxury accommodations for a host of vessels including yachts up to 40 meters (130 feet). The destination is owned by real estate funds managed by Blackstone, one of the world’s leading investment firms.
“IGY is honored to have been selected to manage and flag the St. Katharine Docks Marina,” said Thomas Mukamal, IGY’s CEO. “This is a thrilling opportunity for IGY to showcase our industry-leading marina operations and global marketing platform for which IGY has become well known.”
At St. Katharine Docks, IGY will bring its industry-leading best practices to further enhance marina operations and customer service.
St. Katharine Docks is Central London's only marina and is located approximately 40 nautical miles up the Thames River, adjacent to the Tower of London with many of London’s most famous tourist attractions in close proximity. The asset was renovated by Blackstone and has evolved into a thriving waterside community, featuring a mix of commercial, residential, retail, food and beverage amenities that surround the marina.
The Docks' cobblestone promenade of boutiques, eateries, pubs and markets, provides beautiful places to explore along the marina's waterfront. A true "bucket list" yachting destination - the marina offers waste management, concierge services, provisioning, fitness center, showers, and world-class on-site dining and shopping.
