Marinas & Yacht Clubs: There is so much more expected from a moor than just moorage these days! Island Global Yachting has full-service marinas located in the Americas, the Caribbean Islands, and the Middle East. The company has plans to develop more marinas in these prime areas as well as the in exotic Mediterranean waters. IGY's singular goal is to service the burgeoning yachting lifestyle that is sprouting up worldwide. Operating an upscale marina is a hospitality niche that exclusively serves affluent patrons and requires a high level of expertise in both marine- and business-related issues to be successful. ISG-managed marinas cater to the needs of private boat owners and yacht-chartering outfits.

IGY is about offering the total lifestyle experience that embodies luxury afloat. Yacht Haven Grande in St. Thomas of the U.S. Virgin Islands is the epitome of the marinas managed by the new-age hospitality organization. It is a 48-slip megayacht marina with 18-foot concrete docks and piers. There is 80,000 square feet of retail space and real estate available along the marina. Bulgari, Coach, and Louis Vuitton are just a few of the upscale shops of Yacht Haven Grande.

The American Yacht Harbor in St. Thomas and the Rodney Bay in St. Lucia are two more high-profile locations in the Caribbean Islands. There also are ISG marinas in Virgin Gorda and Tortela of the British Virgin Islands as well as St. Maarten of the Netherlands-Antilles. The Marina Cabo San Lucas and the Montauk Yacht Club are IGY's marinas in the Americas. The marinas in the Middle East are Marina Bander Al-Rowdha and the Anchor Marina.

Island Global Yachting is active in designing, developing, engineering, financing, and marketing of marinas. It is a flagship pioneering company in the establishment of yachting lifestyle destinations. Companies within the corporate structure of IGY include Island Capital and Applied Technology & Management.

IGY has signature restaurants and clubs on its marinas that range from fine dining to casual wining to raucous rock-and-roll roadhouse clubs, such as Three 60, Grande Cru, and Wikked. The first is a gourmet dining experience of Asian and Latin culinary influences. Grande Cru is a wine bar with a stellar cellar, and Wikked is a Caribbean rock club that metes out its pleasure with signature drinks and live bands and music acts. There are other signature restaurants and nightlife venues in the works.
