Luxury yacht dockominiums planned for Fort Lauderdale
by Risa Merl
A new development called Harbour Twenty-Six will bring 26 covered superyachts slips to Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
The dockominiums – so-called as the docks are sold like condominiums, coming with a property tile and not built for transient usage – will be in a two-storey building located along the New River in Fort Lauderdale’s prestigious Shady Banks neighbourhood.
Alabama-based company Battle Plan Capital has acquired the land from the former Pier 17 Marina and Yacht Club, acquiring it for $5.75 million in November 2014.
“We took on the Pier 17 plans but adapted them to add additional focus for the captains and crews as well as an attractive and secure base for the owner to keep his/her yacht”, says Battle Plan Capital CEO Nathan Cox.
The plans for the luxury dockominium development Harbour Twenty-Six include a clubhouse, pool, gym, entertainment area, work stations for captain and crew and 24-hour security.
This announcement follows recent news of a similar development down south in Miami with the new SeaVault marina on Miami River offering yacht owners a homeport with covered slips and a full suite of amenities.
The luxury docks at Harbour Twenty-Six in Fort Lauderdale will come with a luxury price tag to match. Slips start at $1.8 million for yachts up to 24 metres and range up to $3 million for yachts up to 52 metres.
