IGY Marinas has today been appointed to manage National Harbor Marina, in Chesapeake Bay, US. The global marina management and operations firm says the addition of this northeast location marks a milestone allowing the company – for the first time ever – to offer travellers access to its service and quality in the Washington, D.C. area.

“IGY continues to execute on its targeted expansion strategy. National Harbor has become a major tourism destination and hot bed for new development projects, making it the perfect location for IGY Marinas to expand its presence in the area,” says Tom Mukamal, IGY Marinas CEO.

Superyacht destination

Mukamal says that National Harbor and the Washington, D.C. region were high on its list and due to the success of the development in the area, the marina provides great potential as a yachting destination.

“We look forward to working with local stake holders and our strategic partners within the industry to make this destination the yachting epicenter of our Capital’s region,” he adds.

As part of the integration process, IGY Marinas will team up with National Harbor Marina to begin implementing the company’s services and operations.

IGY Marinas will also leverage existing relationships within its network, host special events and conduct philanthropic initiatives to raise the maritime profile of the marina to a new level.

Located just 15 minutes from Washington, D.C, National Harbor Marina offers more than 70 floating dock slips with the ability to accommodate yachts in excess of 45m (150ft) with up to a 9-foot draft.

The marina also provides complimentary Wi-Fi, cable, water and refuse bins; security gate with pin code entrance; private shower and laundry facilities, and more.
