THE WORLD’S MOST COMPREHENSIVE MAR Themed attraction planned for Caribbean marina USVI: IGY Marinas has leased the landmark ‘over-water’ 360 building at Yacht Haven Grande in St Thomas to a private group that intends to transform it into a premier, mixed-use themed attraction. The group includes Dr Kiran Akal, former creative consultant for Walt Disney and Warner Music writer and artist, and Dave Goodman, former vice president and executive producer of entertainment for the Walt Disney Company (The Disneyland Resort, Tokyo Disney Resort and the Walt Disney Special Events Group) and Anheuser Busch Theme Parks. The rich history and culture of the USVI and greater Caribbean, as well as the natural resources that make this region so sought after, will be part of the narrative of the attraction and Kiran Akal promises a result that “will not be found anywhere else in the world”. The project has the support of the USVI Department of Tourism, Florida- Caribbean Cruise Association and IGY Marinas. It will provide jobs and on-site training at the highest levels in the hospitality, retail and technical WORLD NEWS sectors, contribute significantly to the local economy, and further diversify the USVI’s tourism offering.
