Pier Sixty-Six Marina expands

Tavistock Development Company, owner of Pier Sixty-Six Marina, has added slips and dockage for vessels up to 400 feet long on the north and south sides of the 17 Street Causeway in Fort Lauderdale. The property now has 157 slips, representing a 24-percent increase, and 5,000 feet of linear dockage, a 67-percent increase.

“Expanding our marina capacity further enhances our ability to welcome everyone from the world’s most spectacular superyachts to our local boaters,” said Megan Lagasse, marine director of Pier Sixty-Six Marina, in a statement. “Stepping up to our role to help protect Fort Lauderdale’s waterways also hits home for our team.”

The marina has also entered partnerships with 4Ocean and #1000Mermaids, which builds habitats for infant coral. It is home to two 4Ocean vessels that collect waste on South Florida waterways. The organization has picked up more than a million pounds of trash globally. Pier Sixty-Six is also currently displaying one of #1000Mermaids tail casts of the concrete mermaid that will be submerged off Fort Lauderdale beach later this year to create a habitat for infant coral.
