Benetti moving to LMC


Benetti Americas has signed a multi-year lease for office space at Lauderdale Marine Center in Fort Lauderdale. In addition to taking space at the facility, LMC has become a Benetti Service Partner. Benetti will use the facility for its service operations and after-market sales team.

“In choosing Lauderdale Marine Center as its regional service facility, Benetti is recognizing the competitive benefits our facility has to offer — from its sheer size and ability to haul boats up to 485 tons to our Foreign Trade Zone, which will allow Benetti to import boats to our facility duty free,” said Doug West, president of LMC.

Benetti Americas is currently in office space on Southeast 17th Street near the Boatyard restaurant. Other companies that have signed leases at LMC in the past year include Pinmar USA, Ferretti Group and Northrop & Johnson.

LMC is a 65-acre boatyard, marina and marine service center with 10,000 linear feet of dockage, 22 covered sheds and 130 wet slips. Its business model includes leasing work space and commercial office space to about 60 on-site contractors that provide marine-related services such as fiberglass repair, electrical, painting, engine service, hydraulics, navigation and electronics, carpentry, metal fabrication and welding.
