Seakeeper opens in Lauderdale

Jul 15, 2013 by Guest Writer

Seakeeper, manufacturer of gyro stabilization systems, has opened a sales, service and parts facility near Ft. Lauderdale.

“We’re now physically in the heart of one of the country’s pre-eminent boatbuilding and boatyard regions, which is also a world-leading yachting destination,” said Seakeeper COO John Kermet. “The Ft. Lauderdale area is the hub for refit activity on yachts bound for the Caribbean and Mexico. It’s important we support the local Seakeeper network and our large customer base with sales and service personnel, and full parts inventory.”

Seakeeper’s new facility is on Marina Mile at 2821 S.W. 23rd Terrace, Suite 5, in Dania Beach. It also has corporate and engineering headquarters in Maryland, and manufacturing, engineering and assembly operations in Pennsylvania.
