Yachts up to 300 feet in length will be able to dock at the city of Ft. Lauderdale’s Las Olas Marina, according to the redevelopment plan chosen by the city.

The chosen plan includes dockage for two yachts up to 300 feet, one 200-foot yacht, six spaces for yachts up to 150 feet, three spaces for vessels up to 120 feet, 26 spaces for 100-foot yachts and 15 spaces of varying sizes for boats less than 80 feet.

Four plans were submitted by Suntex Marinas and Edgewater Resources to lease, manage and develop the property on the east side of the Las Olas Boulevard Bridge on the Intracoastal Waterway.

The chosen plan is described as a “true megayacht destination and waterfront dining experience for the public and boaters alike.”

“We’re in the process of finalizing lease negotiations with the city,” said Bryan Redmond, founding member of Suntex Marinas. “And while in negotiations, our engineers are doing due diligence for the project. In mid-February, we meet to finalize the lease agreement.”

The marina will continue to be a part of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
