Dania Cut-Off Canal Developments

Filed under: Miscelaneous — Richard Jordan @ 12:00 am

Derektor 900-ton Lift

Recently the Dania Cut has seen two big developments: (1) the dredging of the canal to 15-feet and (2) Dereketor Shipyards assembling of the second largest travelift in the USA.

The dredging barge has been in action since July, and although inhibiting navigation, she is a welcome sight. And as it is offseason with most yachts in the Mediterannean, she is not inhibiting too much. The deeping of the canal to 15-feet will allow the yards such as Dania Cut, Broward, Playboy, Harbortown, Powell Brothers, Associated, Derektors, and Royale Palm to service the ever larger superyachts that cruise our shores. From my office at Royale Palm, I check on the dredging daily and note its signs such as murkier than usual water flowing into the basin.

Derektor’s montrous 900-ton travel lift towers over the existing sheds. While erected, the lift is still under contruction and will not be operational until the superyacht season starts again in autumn. Rumor has it that a 180-foot motoryacht is scheduled to be the first to use the lift which will allow Derektor to fit more yachts in its yard than the current marine railway allows. I am excited to see the debut of this lift.

These two developments are fantastic signs that others believe and are investing in a prosperous future for the Fort Lauderdale maritime economy. Another sign is the expansion of the Fort Lauderdale International Airport with a runway which will overpass Federal Highway.

"Using your services in purchasing our Beneteau 44 CC in 2007, and now in selling it in 2015, gave new meaning to the two happiest days in a boat owner’s life. Your endeavors provided significant added value to each transaction. While sailing the vessel back to Ft Lauderdale from Tortola had its moments of excitement, I can attest that selling Islander through you in Ft Lauderdale was better than our prior boat purchase/sale experience at Nanny Cay. There were no hidden costs and adjusting the price appropriately to meet market conditions proved the importance of having your professional advice.
