Looking for Ft. Lauderdale Marina Recommendations

Iím thinking of taking my boat to FL for the winter and my crew would love to stay in Ft. Lauderdale area for number reasons like better/warmer climate, great entertainment, close to number of cruising destination (including Bahamas, which is on our bucket list), close to the major airports, etc.

While visiting earlier, weíve looked at few marinas and so far our pick is Loggerhead of Hollywood.

Does anyone have experience with them?

Do you have recommendations on less expensive but still good alternative marinas?

Iíve also tried searching for some private slips, but those that I found didnít look to be in desirable neighborhoods, although the rate was very attractive.

If anyone has good source for private classifieds for Ft. Ldrl, I would greatly appreciate. So, far Iíve looked at docksearch and craigslist.

I extricated ours form River Bend. $TAY AWAY!!

Pricing we found suggests you get well north of Lauderdale or prepare to be worked over.

We visited Loggerhead by car to check it out. Looked really nice and in upscale area. Malls nearby. Just did not fit our expectations with regards to chandleries and services as we needed to do work on our boat.

I checked with Royal Palm. They gave me a quote of $24 p/f/m. They don't allow diver service. You have a choice of taking your boat someplace else or do a haul out and pressure wash for $6 p/f. This doesn't make them a primary choice on my list.

Keep your suggestions coming, guys.
