2018 Caribbean Season St. Maarten Captain Testimonials
Over 2018, IGY Marinas has invested millions in developing our facilities so that they are even better than ever. Below are some testimonials from some of the captains that have already visited The Yacht Club at Isle de Sol this 2018/2019 Caribbean Season.
"SLIPSTREAM returned to Isle de Sol in early 2018, a few months after Irma, and the scenes of destruction were overwhelming. The damage sustained to Isle de Sol was extensive, with only a few slips available, but it was clear that everyone was totally committed on re-building as quick as possible. Not just at Isle de Sol, but all over the island. Fast forward to the end of 2018 and the progress made is astonishing. Isle de Sol is fully operational again and like new. All across the island more and more places have re-opened, or are very near completion. The progress made of the clear-up operation in the lagoon has been very positive. The determination and spirit shown by the people on the island is admirable to say the least and we look forward to continuing our support for Isle de Sol and the island.” Captain Steve Osborne
"For most of us Isle De Sol has always been a 2nd home and arguably the jewel in the IGY portfolio so the devastation caused by Hurricane Irma in 2017 was truly gut wrenching yet in the true Caribbean spirit, IGY not only repaired Isle De Sol but used the opportunity to make several key infrastructure improvements to the facility. Even though the island is still bearing some of its hurricane scars, Isle De Sol now looks and operates better than when it was new!” Captain Emile Bootsma, Blue Moon
"Hard to imagine the devastation with how good the marina looks now. Open for business and better than before" – Captain Gregor R White - Paloma
"We just arrived in December back to St Maarten from the Med. Sealyon was in the Caribbean last winter and witnessed the aftermath of Irma in St Martin and throughout the Caribbean. We didn’t miss the Caribbean season despite the Hurricane damage and supported re-building efforts last winter by attending. A note to say that we really appreciate the huge efforts to repair our Home Marina Isle De Sol Marina St Maarten. I have stayed in touch throughout and understand the work put in by all to fully open for Winter 2018/2019. Massive effort, well done. Amazing, the Marina looks great. IGY goes from strength to strength." - Captain Chris Lee - Sealyon
