Thus far, a number mega yachts ranging in size from 99 to 154 feet have taken full advantage of the only program that encourages cruising in St. Thomas, St. Maarten, St. Lucia and Puerto Rico - collectively. Exclusively created for yachts over 80 feet, the CAP program was inspired from mega yacht captains who voiced the need for more flexibility in dockage with a program that allows them to roam the Caribbean throughout the year while enjoying the best-in-class luxury marinas.
Under the pass, yachts travel between 5 different IGY marinas across 4 destinations over the span of a full year, while only paying for 120 days. Anchor Pass holders receive priority reservations at significant savings off the daily dockage rate, all the while maintaining the flexibility to move about the network freely.
Participating marinas in the IGY Caribbean Anchor Pass are:
- Yacht Haven Grande, St. Thomas
- The Yacht Club at Isle De Sol, St. Maarten
- Simpson Bay Marina, St. Maarten
- Rodney Bay Marina, St, Lucia
- Palmas del Mar Yacht Club, Puerto Rico
"Over the last year, the Anchor Pass has grown to be a popular choice among IGY customers. The cost savings are significant and the flexibility of the program follows the very nature of transient mega yachts. We look forward to another successful year with the program as 4 yachts have already renewed their pass from last year." says EVP of Operations for IGY Marinas, Kenny Jones.
Holders of the Anchor Pass all have positive feedback about the flexibility and convenience of the program:
"We are very pleased with the professionalism shown by the staff at IGY Yacht Haven Grande, St. Thomas. Our vessel will be traveling south through the Caribbean and on to Curacao and Colombia. For our program and schedule, the Anchor Pass proved to be a link between the finest marinas in the Caribbean, while at the same time giving the assurance that the service and facilities will exceed those of most other marinas."
"The IGY Anchor Pass has been a great convenience for us, knowing that we'll have a dock when we wish, and has also has provided us with peace of mind. It is also wonderful that the marinas offer amenities such as a gym and lounges for our crew. Not only in St. Thomas, we can also count on the same service at other islands and the IGY marinas where we travel."
"I would recommend the IGY anchor pass for anyone who is looking to spend time down here in the Caribbean. We have explored only Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, and IGY has made it as easy as possible to have a slip lined up and ready for us when we arrive. We found the marinas and staff to be very impressive, with everyone always willing to lend a hand if needed. For us it is an easy decision to choose the Anchor Pass, a choice we will be making again next year when we come back!"
