The construction of F3 Marina Fort Lauderdale on a 1.3-acre site at 1335 S.E. 16th St. – formerly SunDance Marine – is progressing after a ground-breaking ceremony held during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in November. The marina is expected to open by late 2020, according to the company.

Plans call for a drystack marina with room for 240 boats up to 46 feet long and 17 feet high. The drystack building will use a computerized crane system to move boats from the 21 wet slips to the 240 dry slips, the company has stated. 

“We were already operating a successful, efficient drystack [The Port Marina] three blocks to the east, so we had a feel for the location and we’re very excited about it,” stated Alain Giudice, vice president of F3 Marina.

F3 Marina, a division of Milwaukee-based Founders 3 Real Estate, provides marina management and consulting services for a dozen marina properties in the U.S. Midwest and along the U.S. East Coast, as well as one under development in Panama.
