Island Global Yachting upgrades rewards program

Island Global Yachting announced enhancements to the IGY Anchor Club, its customer loyalty program.

The program continues to reward captains of yachts longer than 80 feet, but it was redeveloped to further benefit captains for choosing an IGY destination. A point-accruement system allows members to redeem points for electronics, fine jewelry, home and outdoor gear, travel opportunities, and products and services for vessels.

Captains gain automatic membership when they dock at any IGY destination or when they register online.

The new program officially launches Friday at the Dockwalk Party for captains and crew during the Miami International Boat Show.
