IGY NEWS - The Marinas at Resorts World Bimini Joins The IGY Network of Premier Yachting Destinations
APRIL 7, 2014 – FORT LAUDERDALE, FL.
IGY Marinas is excited to announce that the Marina at Resorts World Bimini has joined the IGY network as its 14th yachting destination. Ideally located in the Bahamas just 48 nautical miles off the coast of South Florida, the 230‐slip marina welcomes vessels up to 180 feet with a 10ft draft, and is part of the popular Resorts World Bimini, a 750 acre luxury resort that features exclusive residences, a live action casino, and a new marina hotel scheduled to be completed this fall, all on miles of unspoiled sandy beaches and crystal‐clear turquoise waters.
Amenities at the Marina at Resorts World Bimini include an open‐air lounge, bait & tackle shop, laundry service, a fitness center, grocery and liquor store, as well as showers and restrooms. While on property guests can enjoy the Resort’s six onsite restaurants, outdoor shopping and dining options, two pools, a beach club, a children’s center and tennis courts – or try their luck at the Resorts World Bimini Casino and Sports Book, the first in the world with panoramic water views and just steps away from the Marina.
Members can also enjoy watersports in the calm waters of the Bimini Lagoon, such as kayaking and standup paddle boarding. SCUBA divers and snorkelers can explore underwater reefs, shipwrecks and the mysterious Bimini Road rock formation leading to the fabled Atlantis. Anglers will relish the chance to troll the world’s top sport fishing grounds and the famous bone fishing flats of Bimini. Marina guests have full access to the Resort and all its amenities that can be arranged for captains and crew via the marina office.
Vice President of Real Estate and Business Development for IGY Marinas, Eric Simonton, says, “Resorts World Bimini is a world‐class destination that fits perfectly into the IGY marina network.
