“I am excited to be back working with superyachts,” van Peer said. “I love working with new builds.”

Van Peer assumed her duties on Monday and said the clubhouse building shell is built and drywall has been installed. Seahaven is on the Dania Cut-off Canal across from MarineMax and west of Derecktor Shipyard. It will have 2,400 linear feet of dockage for yachts 100 to 250 feet in length.

“The docks are in, except for one, and next they begin work on shore and all other power,” van Peer said. “It’s taking shape.”

Van Peer is certified as a marina manager and is a member of the board of directors of the Marine Industries Association of South Florida.
