IGY Announces the Development of a New Marina in Savannah, Georgia

Island Global Yachting (IGY Marinas) has announced the development of a new marina in the heart of Savannah, Georgia. Branded IGY Savannah Harbor Marina and developed in partnership with Savannah Harbor Partners LLC, upon completion in the Spring of 2025, the destination will feature 100 berths for vessels of all sizes, including deep draft superyachts.

Located just five miles from the Intracoastal Waterway and with no air draft or depth restrictions on the Savannah River, it is an ideal stopover for both cruisers and transiting superyachts. Its central location on Hutchinson Island offers easy access to the city center just across the Savannah River, a quick ferry ride away from the charming Savannah Historic District, offering sweeping views of the Savannah skyline.

IGY Savannah Harbor Marina will be part of the Savannah Harbor mixed-use development, conveniently located next to the Savannah Convention Center and Westin Hotel. The development features the recently completed Emma James apartments by Woodfield Development, as well as a park, restaurants and retail shops. A signature waterfront restaurant is planned, and the Club at Savannah Harbor golf course and spa is located just steps away. With the Savannah International Airport and local FBOs only 25 minutes away, daily flights are available to many of the top destinations in the US and Canada.

Known for its rich history and architecture, Savannah attracts visitors from around the world and has a long history of nautical tourism and commerce, including the vibrant Port of Savannah. Savannah is a popular tourism destination in the southeastern United States and provides convenient proximity to other vibrant and welcoming cities such as Charleston, South Carolina and Jacksonville, Florida.

“We are excited to be involved in this wonderful project and a catalyst of nautical tourism in this thriving area. The opportunity to develop and operate IGY Savannah Harbor Marina means we will deliver the highest levels of service to our global clientele in this incredible destination,” says Steve English, President, IGY Marinas.

Myrick Marine Contracting Corporation will provide services as the general contractor. MEECO-Sullivan Wahoo docks will be installed in the small boat inner basin, and Marinetek floating concrete pontoons will be utilized for the superyacht dock located along the river.

IGY Savannah Harbor Marina will include state of the art amenities encompassing fueling, shore power, deep water berthing, parking, and marina concierge services.

“We are pleased to have an IGY Marina as part of the Savannah Harbor development," said John Cay, principal of Savannah Harbor Partners LLC. "IGY Marinas is a global leader in the maritime community, and we welcome their expertise and brand recognition. The marina will be a focal point of the development and enhance the service offerings of this incomparable area.”
