After a thorough analysis of the yachting business, the Island Global Yachting has set up an IGY Anchor Club in 2009 for the captains and crew, which a view to help in making more business from megayachts. Like the yacht builders take care of all the requirements of the owner and guests, here it becomes necessary that the approval of the crew is sought for maintenance facilities of the yachts which are anchored to the dock for days or even weeks. IGY’s loyalty program which currently boasts of 200 members will lead to in expansion of the awards and rewards to increase participation.

Captains will not only earn 20 points for every night’s stay but also $100 gift certificates for all the participating marinas’ restaurants on completion of 45 slip nights. The stay might not necessarily have to be at one IGY marina. On finishing 75 slip nights, the captain will move to the Presidential Level of the program. Now for instance the captains will be able to reimburse their points for products in a catalog created for the IGY Anchor Club. Besides this, they will get another $100 restaurant gift certificate and a barbecue for the full crew organized by the marina. Only when 125 nights stay is completed is the highly loyal captain awarded with the benefits of the Chairman’s Level. This consists of $200 hotel or restaurant certificates, chosen dock location, and water sports or other marina-hosted activities for the crew.

At the moment, there are eight IGY marinas attending the program. This list covers Yacht Haven Grande in St. Thomas; Rodney Bay Marina in St. Lucia; The Yacht Club at Isle de Sol and Simpson Bay Marina, both in St. Maarten; and Newport Yacht Club in New Jersey. This will also be followed by others across the Caribbean, USA, Europe, and Middle East.
