Some of life is about what you know, most of it is about who you know. The same rings true when it comes to securing positions within the yachting industry.
And from our experience (even though the best positions to be had are via word-of-mouth,) the following list is a great starting point for those without any direction whatsoever:
- Fort Lauderdale
Hall of Fame Marina*
Bahia Mar Marina
Fort Lauderdale Hilton Marina
Lauderdale Marine Center**
Marina Mile Yachting Center**
Universal Marine Center**
Roscioli Yachting Center**
Seahaven Superyacht Marina
- West Palm Beach
* Gated Marina
** Gated Shipyard – dockwalking not encouraged
