The Hilton Marina in Fort Lauderdale has been bought by Brookfield Asset Management and renamed 17th Street Yacht Basin. It is the first marina on the west side of the Intracoastal Waterway on the north side of the 17th Street Causeway Bridge.
Purchased from the Blackstone Group, the marina will be managed by US Marina Group and headed by two industry veterans, Kevin Quirk and Jim Bronstien. Capt. Alan Montgomery is the dockmaster.
The property has a face dock for several yachts of up to 600 feet as well as a 33-slip marina for yachts up to 70 feet.
