IGY’s Yacht Haven Grande, St. Thomas has been awarded the Towergate 2020 International Superyacht Marina of the Year by The Yacht Harbour Association (TYHA) - the only marina in the world to have received this prestigious award three times in 2016, 2019 and 2020.
TYHA, one of the oldest international yachting associations in the world partnered with Towergate Insurance, to recognize the best marinas from around the world. This amazing achievement follows the 2019 elevation of Yacht Haven Grande’s status as a 5 Gold Anchor Marina to the coveted 5 Platinum Anchor level.
Kenny Jones MBE, Executive Vice President of Global Operations at IGY Marinas stated, “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.”
“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, Marina General Manager, Yacht Haven Grande. "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 corporate staff who all strive to make every visit a secure, memorable and fun one. I couldn’t be more proud.”
Yacht Haven Grande, St. Thomas is one of the busiest charter destinations during the Caribbean winter season, capable of berthing yachts up to 200m (656 ft). This season, Yacht Haven Grande and other selected IGY marinas will be offering screening for Covid-19, along with regular updates on key destinations to support the industry.
