Any suggesting on a Yard in FL, GA, SC for a 100-ton yacht?

I'm struggling to find a Yard that can haul out 100 steel gaffer ketch 19'6" beam 75-foot mast that allows the owner to do our own work (we have plenty of Yard projects). Thunderbolt in Savannah is a great suggestion but I don't believe they allow self-help work to be done there.

Any suggestions?

Green Cover Marina on the St. John's river always get's good reviews. It definitely is a do-it-yourself place. Don't know about the size limits, but I've seen some hefty commercial vessels there. Green Cove Springs Marina - The Cruiser's Homeport

You won't get a 75 foot mast to GCS. And the travel lift is a tad small.

Tiger Point in Fernandina Beach might do it. They are DIY and no bridges, good travelift but beam might be a bit tight.

We found the people and facilities at Scorpion Marine located in Port Canaveral Florida to be excellent. Also the support services available in the area are excellent as well.

Lauderdale Marine Center can haul your boat, as they can lift up to 485 tons, 180ft length, 34.5ft beam. There are no fixed bridges between them and the ocean. They allow some, but not all, of your own work. They used to allow you to do your own bottom paint, but that changed during the last year unfortunately. They can tell you what they will allow and what they wont.

BTW, if you do go to LMC, you will go right past my boat docked on the New River about 1/2 mile before you get there - please don't bump into me ;-). And if you say hello I might just have cold beer onboard...

Thunderbolt Marina on the ICW just south of Savannah, GA. They can handle it on their marine railway.

Opened this thread to find a CVS pharmacy add covering most of the OP’s question.

Re: Any suggesting on a Yard in FL, GA, SC for a 100-ton yacht?

Many years ago I went to look at a big cat in Fort Lauderdale. In the yard was a BIG old super yacht. Massive hole cut to remove and replace engines. Waaay up the creek, just befor the bridge IIRC.

There are a number of bridges but I think they all open.

BTW we visited in Georgetown


Ah ha! If this isn’t it, it’s next door

H & R Marine Engineering
1601 SW 20th St,
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33315
(954) 527-4860

Ok it’s probably Lauderdale Marine Center mentioned above.
