Farewell to 2016: A look forward into 2017

2016 brought a lot of positive change to Lauderdale Marine Center. We initiated a new Certified Contractors program, hired new key staff members, moved into our new office space, and exhibited at FLIBS for the very first time. We are looking forward to 2017 for more exciting changes and improvements.

New Yard Space – The development of the old Riverbend facility is ongoing. Old facilities have been demolished, new floating docks have arrived, and drainage is currently being installed. It may not look like much now, but the facility will eventually allow for 42 additional spaces on the hard and 43 in the water – All for boats under 80 feet. This will open space in the existing yard for our larger friends.

Upgrades to Lifts – We’re working on upgrading our 2 larger lifts. The 100 ton travelift will be traded in for a 220 ton. We’re also upgrading our 300 ton to a 500 ton travelift specifically designed for our yard.

Crew Amenities – We know yard time can be tough on captains and crew, so we are aiming to make your stay more comfortable with upgrades and additions to our amenities.

We are excited for what 2017 will bring, and look forward to seeing everyone next year!
