Luxury Yachting Takes New York

Pack your bags, hop on your boat and head to New York. We have some good news. Till now there had not been an adequate marina for luxury yacht owners to sail into but low and behold; Island Global Yachting (IGY), one of the world’s premier owners, developers and managers of luxury marinas and yachting lifestyle destinations, has finally announced the addition of Newport Yacht Club and Marina. Now,  finally, New York is added on to their global collection of grand marinas.

This marina is not like most others, as you would expect reading about it in Haute Living. This marina is the best of the best. The grandest of the grand. It is composed of 154 berths – including 12 megayacht berths – with a enormous wealth of amenities and services surrounded by a luxury marina village. Sounds pretty perfect right? Allow me to go on… IGY provides you at this location with some signature marina features such as, inner basin parallel docks for superyachts; transient finger slips for vessels up to 60 feet; 30, 50 and 100 amp single-phase and 100 amp three-phase power (are you keeping up?!); water, cable, and telephone hookups; indoor parking; modern bathrooms, showers and laundry; 24-hour dock and perimeter security and close circuit cameras for monitoring and taping; in-water storage; on site PATH subway train; and of course, a helipad.

“We are pleased to welcome Newport Yacht Club & Marina to the IGY family,” said Kenny Jones, executive vice president of marina operations for IGY. “This is a wonderful facility and is an exciting addition to the IGY marina network. Together with the Montauk Yacht Club, this facility provides an outstanding platform as we develop a powerful marina network in New England and the Mid-Atlantic states.”

So, bundle up, turn on the heater and motor on up to New York to do some early holiday shopping. Hop on the on-site subway and head 10 minutes over to the city, or stick around the marina and do your shopping there. They have available nearly 200 stores, a 12-screen movie theater, and if you do not feel like spending another moment on your boat, there are two luxury hotels just footsteps away. Enjoy!
