PORT 32 Fort Lauderdale, located west of I-95 on the New River and just north of Marina mile, will offer storage, repair and retrofits for vessels up to 150-foot LOA; improved 8-foot wide docks; upgraded power to accommodate today’s megayacht needs; the only marine fuel dock on the New River and much more.

“Additionally, in early 2019 we will begin development on Phase II, which will consist of a 700-plus slip state-of-the-art dry stack facility capable of storing vessels up to 55-foot in length, as well as 100-plus marine commercial units for service, sales, office, and storage,” says Joe Miller, PORT 32 managing principal.
