“We are pleased to welcome Newport Yacht Club & Marina to the IGY family,” said Kenny Jones, executive vice president of marina operations for IGY. “This is a wonderful facility and is an exciting addition to the IGY marina network. Together with the Montauk Yacht Club, this facility provides an outstanding platform as we develop a powerful marina network in New England and the Mid-Atlantic states.”
