River Bend gets new owners

ADVERTISEMENT

Ft. Lauderdale-based Quality Power and Sail Marine (QPSM) has acquired River Bend Marine Center on Southwest 20th Street, just east of Lauderdale Marine Center.

QPSM is a brokerage firm owned by Roger Moore and Jeff Garcia.

“This is an exciting opportunity to serve the yachting community as we upgrade and improve a facility that has suffered neglect for several years,” Moore said in a news release. “This addition will serve to enhance and round out the broad range of sales and services already offered by our company.”

The yard has an 80-ton travel lift and offers services in pressure washing, bottom painting, running gear repair, fiberglass and gel coat restoration, paint, polish and general system maintenance and repair. Complete refitting services will be available, QPSM said in the release.

Currently, QPSM is located on the northeast corner of Griffin Road and I-95 behind the Hilton Hotel, sharing a property with its sister company Nautical Ventures, a retail watersports store.
