IGY adds London to global network of superyacht destinations
Island Global Yachting (IGY Marinas), a luxury marina operating company, founded by Andrew Farkas, recently announced its addition of yet another international marina to its global marina network. The St. Katharine Docks Marina (SKD Marina), located in London, England becomes the 18th marina in IGY’s network, spanning across 11 countries. Growing from just a few marinas in the Caribbean to a global network of marinas reflects the tremendous success and growth IGY has seen under Farkas Chairmanship.
SKD Marina is a historic, 5 Gold Anchor, 185-ship facility, as well as the only marina in Central London. IGY will be adding St.Katherine’s alongside its other European marinas, such as Malaga (Spain), Sète (France) and Porto Cervo (Sardinia). IGY has stated that the move into London was facilitated by a projected increase in tourism post-Brexit.
With the help of Chairman and Founder Andrew Farkas, IGY looks to bring new life to the SKD Marina. Improvement of customer service, operating procedures, and overall global marketing awareness are key points of emphasis for the luxury yacht operation company. This expansion operation of yet another luxury marina cements IGY as the largest international superyacht destination company in the world.
