The upcoming Formula 1 race weekend in South Florida in May has yacht owners and charter guests abuzz. VIP experiences at the racetrack and at yacht-centric locations are among the activities they’re planning to enjoy. If you haven’t yet made plans, you can take advantage of several IGY Marinas Miami Grand Prix opportunities. One of its marinas, Yacht Haven Grand Miami at Island Gardens, is not just near the action, it’s amid it.
The race, from May 5 to 7, occurs at the Miami International Autodrome. It’s a purpose-built, temporary circuit around Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens. Packages involve special events and slips at Yacht Haven Grande Miami at Island Gardens, accommodating megayachts to 550 feet (168 meters).
Existing IGY Marinas clients—specifically, members of its IGY Trident Collective—received first access. However, all members of the yachting community can now book the experiences. Because the experiences are fully tailored to what you wish to do, they allow a good deal of flexibility. For example, you can book private space for a party with just a few friends and family. Or, book space for a more lavish private or corporate party for up to 150 people you invite. Either way, the space is the marina’s lounge, overlooking the superyachts and the Miami skyline (below).
Regardless, all of the IGY Marinas Miami Grand Prix packages combine the following:
- dockage at the marina, along with concierge services, 24-hour security, and the other amenities the marina usually offers
- private transportation upon request throughout the weekend
- private helicopter transportation to and from the racetrack
- tickets to enjoy the race in IGY Marinas’ Turn 5 suite, overlooking one of the fastest cornering spots for the cars and with further view of turns four and six
- the 20-guest suite is open air but shaded, with complimentary food and beverages, too.
“The Monaco Grand Prix is one of the highlights of the year for the international yachting community,” notes Tom Mukamal, IGY’s CEO. “We are delighted to put another premier event on the calendar, the F1 Miami Grand Prix,” he adds.
The Miami Grand Prix packages won’t be the last special opportunities from IGY Marinas, either. In fact, the company is using the race as the launchpad for its new Events IGY Marinas service. For yacht owners, family offices, as well as yacht-industry companies, the events service is a suite of tailored experiences. They include yacht hops, brand launches, and intimate to large-scale parties.
