IGY Marinas announced that the dredging project at Yacht Club at Isle de Sol is complete. The investment in St. Maarten allows the marina to offer its service and facility to a wider class of superyachts with drafts of up to 17.5 feet.
“IGY Marinas is excited to see Yacht Club at Isle de Sol’s dredging project come to fruition just in time for peak season in the Caribbean,” said Tom Mukamal, CEO of IGY Marinas. “This investment provides several benefits for both the marina and St. Maarten, as it will allow deeper draft vessels to visit St. Maarten for the first time. It is also consistent with our track record of capital investment in our portfolio to maximize the value of our infrastructure for our customers and stakeholders.”
The company said the completed upgrades enhances Yacht Club at Isle de Sol’s ability to better serve sailing yachts competing in several regattas in the Northeastern Caribbean. Competitions include the Heineken Regatta in St. Maarten, as well as the Bucket Regatta and Les Voiles in St. Barths.
Yacht Club at Isle de Sol houses 40 megayacht berths on a private island, with the ability to accommodate vessels in excess of 300 feet in length. The marina also offers amenities including yacht side parking, full 24-hour gated security under the ISPS international coding, newly remodeled fitness center, tennis courts, recently updated swimming pool, IGY Marinas’s island-inspired restaurant concept Fat Turtle, and more. Additional offerings include multiple shopping, entertainment and waterfront dining options in very close proximity to the facility.
