Marina owner, operator and developer Port 32 Marinas continues to develop its Fort Lauderdale, Fla., facility, recently breaking ground on an expansion that includes a drystack system that will add around 700 slips for boats as large as 55 feet.
Port 32 acquired the site in August, after announcing a recapitalization of assets with a New York-based investment group. This phase of the project — which includes drystacks built to withstand winds as strong as 175 mph and with fire-suppression systems — will have 24-hour security, a fuel dock, a captain-and-crew lounge, a recreation area and a fitness center with shower facilities.
“Fort Lauderdale is the epicenter of boating in the United States, yet there is a meaningful shortage of dry slips for the typical center console and express cruiser owner in this trade area,” Port 32 CEO Joe H. Miller IV said in a statement. “We are addressing this deficit by building a large, modern drystack facility with state-of-the-art slips of size to satisfy current needs in the marketplace."
