Island Global Yachting Marinas has expanded its Florida marina portfolio with the addition of One Island Park located on Miami Beach’s Terminal Island. The new location marks a company milestone, as this is the first time IGY will offer its award-winning services and quality to the South Florida market. Branded ‘One Island Park – Miami Beach – an IGY Marinas Destination’, the marina is open and IGY are proudly welcoming yachts to their newest port of call.
“Miami is one of the leading luxury yachting destinations in the United States, making this a significant achievement for our targeted growth strategy in Florida,” said Tom Mukamal, CEO of IGY Marinas. “This exclusive Miami Beach superyacht facility not only allows IGY to showcase our unmatched services to the superyacht market, but also attract even larger vessels to the destination. IGY Marinas is excited about the year ahead, and we are thrilled to begin 2017 with a marina in South Florida.”
Part of IGY’s network of marinas, One Island Park – Miami Beach boasts the largest private purpose-built megayacht dock in the United States with the ability to accommodate private vessels over 730ft (222m). This location further enhances IGY’s collection of marinas and the IGY network’s ability to accommodate the world’s largest vessels. Five of IGY’s 15 locations can accommodate yachts over 300 feet (91 meters), making IGY the leading point of contact for megayachts in the Western Hemisphere.
In order to ensure a smooth transition into the IGY Marinas portfolio, the company appointed Gili Wojnowich as general manager. Most recently, Wojnowich served as operations manager for IGY Marinas corporate, providing direct support to the company’s executive team, assisting IGY’s facility general managers, and providing analysis and underwriting support on numerous business development, marina management and acquisition opportunities. A seasoned professional and Certified Marina Manager (CMM), Wojnowich has served as general manager for several IGY marina locations, including Montauk Yacht Club Resort & Marina (New York); Newport Yacht Club & Marina (New Jersey); and the company’s flagship superyacht facility, Marina at Yacht Haven Grande (St. Thomas). Wojnowich received his dual Bachelor’s degree in Finance and Spanish from Emory University and is fluent in English, Spanish and Hebrew.
IGY Marinas’ Miami location will soon be the new hotspot for superyacht owners, captains, and crew. The marina now offers the award-winning service for which IGY is known, as well as the ability to host yachts in excess of 730ft (222m) in length with a depth of 40ft (12m) and the electric requirements suitable to accommodate the world’s largest vessels. The marina is exempt from Captain of the Port (COTP) zone regulations, allowing a rare freedom within South Florida waters to arrive and depart at will. One Island Park – Miami Beach is private and sits adjacent to the U.S. Coast Guard Station, making it one of the most secure and exclusive marinas in Florida.
BWA Yachting is located on-site, serving as an exclusive yacht agent and concierge for support services to the vessels. IGY Marinas will host special events tied to the destination and conduct philanthropic initiatives through the company’s corporate responsibility project, Inspire Giving through You.
