Island Global Yachting (IGY) has added Newport Yacht Club and Marina to its list of worldwide luxury marinas and yachting destinations.
Kenny Jones, executive vice president of marina operations says “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.”
The marina offers 154 berths that include 12 megayacht berths and can accommodate yachts up to 61m (200ft). Features of the marina include inner basin parallel docks for superyachts, transient finger slips for yachts up to 18m (60ft), 30A, 50A and 100A single phase and 100A three-phase shore power connections as well as water, cable and telephone connections.
The marina is sited across the Hudson River from downtown Manhattan and has its own underground station, which makes midtown Manhattan a 10 minute commute. Connection to Newark International Airport is 15 minutes away and the Holland Tunnel is also convenient.
