Fort Lauderdale-based River Bend Marine Center, which has served the yachting and brokerage community for more than 40 years, will undergo an extensive renovation as part of a master plan to modernize and upgrade the facility.

The yard will continue to be open and operational during the renovation with all existing management and staff to service its client base.

Major vessel repairs will take place next door at the Lauderdale Marine Center. The renovation is scheduled to begin in February 2015 and is expected to last about six months.

River Bend president Jeff Garcia said the scheduled improvements include:

• New floating docks

• Dredging the entire basin

• Extensive seawall repair

• Upgraded electrical distribution and new pedestals

• New bathrooms and showers

• Resurfacing of the yard

• Upgraded landscaping

• Environmental cleanup as needed.
