Ft.

In 1997, LMC brought a new vision to Broward County. That vision was to create the world's premier superyacht facility right in the heart of Fort Lauderdale. Through years of investment in wet slip and dry storage infrastructure, the team developed world-class operational capacity and honed a unique marketplace model. Today, LMC has a total of 106 slips, employs more than 100 full-time professionals and is home to hundreds of marine industry tenants and contractors.
"We are excited to bring Lauderdale Marine Center and their talented team into the Safe Harbor family," said Baxter Underwood, CEO of Safe Harbor.
