Seahaven Superyacht Marina to open February in Dania Beach

Harbormaster Marieke van Peer put her expertise in marina management to work for Seahaven Superyacht Marina’s February opening in Dania Beach, Florida.

With 2,400 linear feet of dockage in place for yachts 100 to 200 feet, the Seven Kings Holdings facility is in final stages of completing the interior of the clubhouse for yacht crew and offices.

“I love a blank slate to build clientele and the team,” van Peer said during a tour of the property in mid-January. “I’m super excited. My favorite part of a new build is how to market, how to develop the customers and building the right team for the property.”

Van Peer was involved in the new build for Island Gardens Deep Harbour marina in Miami in 2015. Before joining the marine industry in 2005, she worked in banking.

Sherrie Pisetzky has been hired as office manager. She previously worked at Miami Beach Marina.

The sheltered marina on the Dania Cut-off Canal has both floating and fixed Marinetek docks and is rated for a Category 3 storm. Marina management will use best judgment during any weather conditions and will work with local marinas, van Peer said.

“There is no surge and it’s really sheltered,” she said. “We’re only dockage but we hope to have a symbiotic relationship with neighboring yards.”  
The clubhouse includes a fitness center, TV room, game table and kitchen amenities.

“I look forward to a lively crew-based area and the opportunity to get to know them,” she said. “This is a nice, personal, home feeling. Happy people are happy boaters. We’re selling a great experience. It’s easy, stress free and simple.”

Seahaven is across the canal from MarineMax and just west of Derecktor Shipyard and Dania Cut Superyacht.
