Industry-first membership collective partners with World Fuel Services, Navium Marine, Forbes Travel Guide, BWA Yachting and VIGILINT
Fort Lauderdale, FL – May 2, 2022 —Island Global Yachting LLC (“IGY”), the only global network of premium yachting destinations and yacht management services, is launching its IGY Trident Collective, the first-ever global collective of superyacht owners. This highly exclusive, by invitation only private membership program is only available to a limited number of superyacht owners – simplifying and enhancing superyacht ownership via specialized, next-generation benefits.
In collaboration with best-in-class partners, benefits include guaranteed global dockage, fuel bunkering, proprietary hull insurance, yacht management, crew service training, yacht agency services, captain and crew benefits, comprehensive health and wellness solutions, and access to curated lifestyle events and experiences.
“Our goal is to improve the economics and experience of yachting, building on our world-class destination base and yacht management platform,” says IGY Trident CEO Tom Mukamal. “People want simplicity in a very difficult and fragmented environment. Between the owner and marina, there are 10-plus different stakeholders. IGY Trident offers a comprehensive set of services administered from a single source.”
IGY’s global portfolio of superyacht-oriented properties extends to 23 marinas in 13 countries across the United States, Caribbean, Europe, and Latin America. In March 2022, IGY took over operations of the Vieux-Port de Cannes, a 700+ slip marina in the heart of the French Riviera. The company is poised to continue expanding into some of the most desirable cruising regions for superyacht owners.
