Island Global Yachting opens headquarters in Spain

Fort Lauderdale-based Island Global Yachting opened a European headquarters in Barcelona, Spain.

The office will oversee the company’s operations and acquisition/development opportunities in the Mediterranean. IGY recently launched a strategy for expansion into this region and has added and/or will be adding new marina locations in Croatia, Greece and Turkey.

“We are excited to open this new European office in Barcelona and believe it is the ideal location from which to base our growth in the Mediterranean,” said Charles Garner, president of Island Global Yachting, in a statement.

“We are fully committed to expanding our presence here and to introducing to the Mediterranean the same quality of facilities and service for which we are known in the Caribbean, the Americas and the Arabian Gulf,” he added.

Steven English, IGY director of business development for Europe, Middle East and Asia, will head the Barcelona office.

Founded in 2005, Island Global Yachting focuses on acquiring, controlling and servicing luxury yacht marinas and the surrounding upland real estate properties.
