PORT 32 Breaks Ground on Upland Phase of Fort Lauderdale Marina Project

PORT 32 Marinas, LLC has broken ground on the upland phase of its marina development project, PORT 32 Fort Lauderdale, located just west of I-95 on the north side of the New River, across from Lauderdale Marine Center and Marina Mile Yachting Center.  

This upland phase will consist of a new drystack containing approximately 700 slips capable of accommodating boats up to 55 feet. The dry rack systems will be built to sustain wind loads of up to 175 mph. 

Joe H. Miller, IV, CEO of PORT 32, said, “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. 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.”
