Pier 66 Marina to complete multimillion dollar upgrade in October
October 24, 2014 | by brendon
“Make room for more mega-yachts.
The iconic Pier 66 Marina is undergoing a multimillion-dollar renovation that will add 10 slips for super yachts, giving it 16 in all.
The work will be done just in time for the marina’s return as a site for the 55th Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, which will run Oct. 30 through Nov. 3 at Pier 66 and six other sites.
The Fort Lauderdale marina opened in the late 1950s as a fuel dock for Phillips 66 Petroleum Co. It last served as a location for the annual boating extravaganza in 2009.
Over the years, some of the world’s most famous yachts have dropped anchor at the marina, located at the Hyatt Regency Pier 66 along Southeast 17th Street.
In March 2013, Oscar-winning director Steven Spielberg’s 282-foot, $200 million yacht Seven Seas was spotted at the marina, docking there for several months.
Plans to renovate the marina had been in the works for about five years but were put on hold when the recession hit, said Kevin Quirk, vice president of marinas for LXR Luxury Marinas, which operates the marina.
Work finally started last summer.” – Sun-Sentinel
