Marina in Ft Lauderdale

I am getting my Hunter 33 trailered to Ft Lauderdale in October, and need a marina to launch her, and raise the mast. Any suggestions? I have never been to Ft Lauderdale. We are only staying for a few weeks before we head out to USVI.
I will also need to fit her with ocean going equipment, so it would be nice to have a WestMarine or similar "nearby".
Thanks a lot!

Re: Marina in Ft Lauderdale

The Playboy Marine Center is good, but they have been decreasing their yard hours, tossing people out when plenty of daylight remains.

Another option is Lauderdale Marine Center. My understanding is they permit 24/7 DIY yard work (check first). Their rates are higher, but the yard days might be less by working longer hours.

I have used Riverbend Marine Center over the years, next door to Lauderdale Marine Center.
Playboy has a waiting list, or had last time I checked, book early.

Cable Marine. Lauderdale Marine Center. Don't limit yourself to just Fort Lauderdale. Look into Miami and/or West Palm Beach.

Thanks for all the good replies. If I should go for Miami or West Palm Beach, any good suggestions?

Again Thanks!
