Plans for a new marina on the site of the old Florida Yacht Basin on the Miami River have gotten their first approvals, according to a story in Miami Today News.
Miami Mega Yacht Marina would accommodate up to 16 yachts of about 200 feet in length on the south side of the river at 1583 N.W. 24th Ave. Each slip would be covered and would include covered parking for three cars, indoor storage and “quarters for the captain and crew,” the news source reported, as well as flex space for repair work. No zoning changes or variances are required.
The next step is permitting, which is expected to take up to a year, the newspaper reported, with completion next summer. Property owner Homero Meruelo told commissioners he was still unsure whether the slips would be leased or sold.
