South Florida marina study tour set for October

Posted on

Marine industry veteran Jim Bronstien will host and facilitate the International Marina Institute’s sixth annual Southeast Florida Marina Study Tour in October.

The tour is a two-day mobile training course that takes participants on exclusive tours of marinas to provide an in-depth look at the operations of different types of facilities in South Florida.

At the end of each day, attendees participate in a facilitated roundtable discussion and analysis of each marina before heading to a networking dinner.

The former owner of Rybovich — the megayacht marina and service yard in West Palm Beach, Fla. — and co-founder of the International Marina & Boatyard Conference, Bronstien now owns Florida-based Marine Business Ventures.

Since he sold Rybovich in 2004, Bronstien has acted as a consultant, an executive adviser or partner/owner for such ventures as Saunders Yacht Works in Gulf Shores, Ala.; Marina Pez Vela Marina in Quepos, Costa Rica; and Costa Rica’s first and only boat rental business, Tres Ninas Boat Rental.

The study tour will be based at the Renaissance Boca Raton Hotel in Boca Raton, Fla. The tour will depart from the Renaissance each day, and the hotel will serve as the location of the classroom portion of the course.

The tour is produced by the International Marina Institute, a subsidiary of the Association of Marina Industries.
