Lauderdale Marine Center begins Renovations
Lauderdale Marine Center will begin renovations in February. The $4 million renovation will expand the boatyard capacity to accommodate six additional yachts as large as 150 feet, including multi-phase, multi-voltage power capabilities of as much as 480 volts, and additional vehicle parking.
Renovations at the adjacent River Bend Marine Center also are scheduled to begin, and will include new drainage, paving of the upland boat storage area and new landscaping as preparations are made to incorporate the property into the Lauderdale center.
“These capital improvements will help us increase the number of large yachts we are able to service at LMC, which in turn will help bring more marine business to Fort Lauderdale,” said Thad Paul, managing director of The Carlyle Group.
Lauderdale Marine Center also announced new hires to three positions. Doug West was named president; Kurt Winselmann, controller; and Jennifer Lang, operations director of the marina.
“The addition of Doug West, Kurt Winselmann and Jennifer Lang to our team helps round out our management team since we acquired the property in July, and each will help us bring the property to the next level in terms of leadership, finance and operations,” states Paul.
