Lee Hicks, the previous dockmaster from Yacht Haven Grande Marina, positioned in the enchanting Caribbean yacht charter destination – St. Thomas, has been appointed by IGY Marinas as the new general manager of American Yacht Harbor, situated on the east end of the island.
A former captain and co-pilot, Lee Hicks’ strengths lie in customer service, staff management and berthing occupancy, making him the ideal candidate for the Red Hook-based property. American Yacht Harbor has 126 slips for yachts up to 110 feet. As the premier sportfish destination in the region, the marina plays host to 4 USVI tournaments and is the most centrally located marina to the North Drop.
