IGY Marinas’ Yacht Haven Grande in St. Thomas has been awarded Superyacht Marina of the Year 2016.
Open to Gold Anchor accredited marinas in the UK, 4,500 votes were cast by marina customers to decide their favourite, an increase of 48% on the number of votes in 2015. 88 marinas were entered in this year’s awards, and categories included the UK Coastal, UK Inland, International and International Superyacht.
In a statement by IGY Marinas, the brand expressed its sincere appreciation to all employees at the Yacht Haven Grande. Kenny Jones, MBE, executive vice president of operations, commented, “IGY Marinas, and more important the operational staff at Yacht Haven Grande who work exceptionally hard to present the highest quality of service to the superyachts owners, guests, crew and captains, are extremely proud to have received this recognition.
“The fact that this award is measured on honest feedback through positive testimonials from our guests, makes this award even more valued by our teams.”
Jones also added, “Across the IGY network we have learnt never to be complacent in our approach to customer service and recognise that every year the service level, facilities and overall presentation needs to be improved if it is to survive in a very demanding sector of the marina industry.
“I am very honoured to be receiving the award on behalf of IGY and Mike Revier of Yacht Haven Grande and his very devoted team.”
