The 10th annual Southeast Florida Marina and Boatyard Study Tour is slated for Nov. 1-2 between Dania Beach, Fla., and Miami.

The tour is a mobile classroom that takes participants on private, exclusive tours of southeast Florida marinas and boatyards just a few days ahead of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, which is set for Nov. 3-7.

Marinas to be visited include Crandon Park Marina, which has 430 spaces, including 236 wet slips, 60 moorings, 124 dry storage and 10 charter fishing boats; Rickenbacher Marina, a family-operated marina in Biscayne Bay; Island Gardens Deep Harbour Marina, which has 5,000 linear feet of slips designed to accommodate megayachts of 500 feet or larger; Harbour Town Marina, which has 154 wet slips, a fuel dock and three dry stacks; Port Condominium and Marina, which has hurricane-protected storage for boats as large as 52 feet; and the Lauderdale Marine Center, the largest yacht repair facility in the country.
