Following a highly competitive tender process, a consortium comprising Ocean Capital Partners, Island Global Yachting and Grupo Empresas Matutes has signed a temporary concession agreement to operate a superyacht marina in the Port of Ibiza, Spain, which will be branded IGY Ibiza Marina.
Welcoming yachts this summer, the marina will provide select services to vessels between 20-120 meters. Post-summer plans for the marina incorporate adding superyacht power up to 1600A, fiber internet, CCTV, crew facilities, modern marina office, boutique retail, and full concierge services. The marina will be one of the only locations in the Balearics where large yachts can conveniently berth alongside a quay wall.
IGY Ibiza Marina is located 10 minutes from Ibiza’s international airport in the Port of Ibiza at the foot of the Old Town, a World Heritage Site. Marina guests have access to fine dining, shopping, and Ibiza’s world-famous nightlife and entertainment. Ibiza is home to a trendsetting entertainment scene and a variety of not to be missed activity that draws celebrities and A-listers from around the world.
With the addition of a key port in the Balearics and the recent launch of the IGY Trident Collective (IGY’s exclusive invitation-only superyacht membership program) the company is further solidifying its unique position as the only superyacht network offering guaranteed berthing in the world’s most desirable yachting destinations.
IGY and OCP have been strategic partners since 2019, when the two firms won a concession to develop and operate a superyacht marina in Malaga, southern Spain. For the Ibiza project, Grupo Empresas Matutes adds a wealth of local expertise as the leading hospitality group on the island.
“Ibiza is a marquis yachting haven that perfectly integrates with the goal of IGY Trident to seamlessly connect the world’s most enticing yachting destinations by offering certainty on a global scale through guaranteed dockage across our industry leading marina network. The addition of this destination provides superyacht owners, charter guests and captains unrivalled destination service and convenience,” states Tom Mukamal, CEO of IGY Marinas. “IGY is thankful for the confidence expressed by the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands in awarding us the opportunity to enhance and promote this amazing superyacht destination to the international market,” Mukamal adds.
“We believe Ibiza will benefit greatly as a destination for luxury travel with the addition of this state-of-the-art superyacht marina, says Jose Luis Almazán, Chief Executive Officer of Ocean Capital Partners. “IGY brings a wealth of experience and international vision of a global industry leader, the Matutes Companies adds local expertise, adding to OCP’s end-to-end capacities with Spanish ports and marinas.”
