Boat yards in Florida

I''m having a 40ft Beneteau deliverd to the Ft Laurderdale area, and then shipping it to Seattle. Can anyone recomend a yard that will help with unstepping the mast and puting it on the truck but let the owner do alot of the work.

Do it yourself yards are getting hard to find but call Riverside Marina in Ft. Pierce which is about 60 or so miles north of Ft. Lauderdale.

Cracker Boys in Ft. Pierce right at the inlet is a good yard for this. All work other than lift work is contracted or DIY! They are VERY busy hauling boats and putting in and tide may be an issue...4.5 low...6.5 high. So you need to make a reservation for a specific day and time to go in there.I draw 6' and had no problem and great service.

Kurt and Jill,

Where are you now? There are a few yards from Fernandina to Ft. Lauderdale but no cheap ones.

Tiger Point in Fernandina Beach. Cracker Boy in Ft. Pierce and Lake Worth.
Lauderdale Marine in Ft. Lauderdale up the New River.

All good inlets, no fixed bridges.

If you insist on DIY in Fort Lauderdale...then YOUR only option is Playboy Marine. There is another "new" yard that is DIY that opened up west of the I-95 bridge, but they are behind a 55' fixed bridge, so no workey for you.

While not DIY, there is a yard offering a pretty good price on bottom jobs right now. Cable Marine. Look at their advertisement on the bottom of the tide tables page in Waterfront News. 10% back on your total bill to Boat Owners Warehouse (great place).

You'll probably have to do the work at Cable Marine East...their main location is also west of the I-95 bridge (remember...55 feet). Cable Marine East has a 40 Ton Lift, so it should be good for anything sail related

Give Tiger Point a call. 904 277 2720 They are just up Egans Creek which is just east of the container wharf in Fernandina. Or dink up there. I keep my boat there and they are easy to work with.

Well, you must still have lots of money if you're at the dock. Lots of good spots to anchor there.

Whoops!

Found a cheaper yard...and they're in Royale Palm Yacht Basin. Straight shot up the Dania Cut Canal.

$30 ft for Trinidad SR including haul, block, power wash..etc vs $35 for Cable Marine. This is for a 35 ft' boat.
