If you had to deal with nearly a dozen different companies to get something done for your home or yacht, you’d be frustrated, right? Tom Mukamal, IGY Marinas’ CEO, sees this happen with superyacht owners. “Between the owner and marina, there are 10-plus different stakeholders,” he says, so no wonder “people want simplicity in a very difficult and fragmented environment.” His company proposes IGY Trident as the solution. It’s a new membership program offering owners exclusive, single-source benefits, from fueling and insurance to health and wellness solutions.
“Our goal is to improve the economics and experience of yachting,” Mukamal adds. IGY Trident does so through partnerships with a variety of companies. For instance, World Fuel Services offers special pricing for bunkering worldwide, including in Gibraltar. Navium Marine, meanwhile, offers hull insurance meeting or exceeding current requirements, within a program solely for members. Yacht-management and yacht-agency and concierge services are available, too, via (respectively) Fairport Yacht Support and BWA Yachting. IGY acquired Fairport Yacht Support last year, and has collaborated with BWA Yachting for many years. Of course, IGY Trident clients get guaranteed dockage access and member pricing on services across IGY Marinas’ 23 properties. Its destinations are in the United States, Caribbean, Latin America, and Europe (like IGY Portisco Marina in Sardinia, pictured) . Those services include fuel and berthing as well.
On the personal and personnel sides, IGY Trident provides more benefits. The company is collaborating with the renowned Forbes Travel Guide, for example. They’re tailoring the latter’s luxury-service training, often sought by five-star hotels, to suit superyacht crew. Finally, Vigilint’s Global MedAssist Program is at members’ disposal. Take advantage of medical consultations around the clock, access to Cleveland Clinic specialists, and even critical-care transport.
Furthermore, IGY Trident plans to host member events like private concerts and social gatherings globally, to foster relationships among owners and provide some extra enjoyment.
