We are open and eager to serve all vessels up to 300’ with our own brand of friendly shipyard service. Our philosophy is to make your stay for repairs, refit, maintenance, or simply dockage as comfortable and convenient as possible. We operate in a slightly different manner than traditional shipyards in that we offer the vessel the option to choose their own contractors*, suppliers, and level of service that we perform. The customer can run their entire project themselves, or allow TLYS to assist to any degree they desire, whether as a complete project manager or merely to offer advice on issues that arise. Or even not be involved at all. The customer tells the management how involved they want us to be.
As former yacht captains and engineers, we understand that owners, management companies, and captains often prefer their own method of work in the shipyard and we are here to help you attain that fit. At TLYS, the vessel deals directly with their contractors and thus the lines of communication are not blurred by a third party. Therefore, the contractor answers to the customer, and if you are not satisfied with his performance, you hire another. While we have extensive knowledge of qualified local contractors, whom you choose is entirely up to you.
TLYS is operating out of the recently rebuilt Powell Brothers facility on the newly dredged (-17.0’MLW) Dania Cut Off Canal, just south of Port Everglades and one mile west of the Intracoastal Waterway. We offer depths of -15.0’MLW dockside and enough power for all your needs, as well as your contractors. Our location is ideally situated with easy access to the Ft.Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, I-595, I-95, I-75, and the Florida Turnpike, as well as downtown Ft. Lauderdale and its beaches, and historic Dania Beach.
