A full-service marina in Miami area?

Seeking referrals to a marina in the Miami - Biscayne Bay - Coral Gables area to prepare 35' sailboat for OTR transport. Thanks in advance.

Re: A full-service marina in Miami area?

There are several marinas in the Miami area that can haul you. But you will need to be sure they can load you on a truck and haul you out. Overhead obstructions and power ilnes can be a problem. Yards with lifts are, Norseman Shipbuilding, Merrill-Stevens, Miami Yacht and Engine Works, and Jones Boatyard on the Miami River. There are also several in Ft. Lauderdale, on the New River, probably a better choice. Chuck

Take a look at Hurricane Hole, about 5 miles up the Miami River. But it's only a 'hurricane hole' for a storm if your boat is on the hard, according to them.

They *may* let you do the work yourself if you want.
