Suntex Adds Superyacht Facility


Suntex Marina Investors has made another marina acquisition in Florida — its fourth in the Sunshine State this year — adding Seahaven Marina in Dania Beach.

Just minutes from Fort Lauderdale International Airport, Seahaven offers drawbridge-free access to the Atlantic Ocean for vessels up to 250 feet.

“Seahaven is a first-class marina with exceptional amenities in the ‘Yachting Capital of the World’,” Suntex vice president Sam Chavers said in a statement. “We are excited to add this location to our portfolio as it is a perfect complement to our other premier mega yacht destinations on the Eastern Seaboard.”

The full-service site, which is a Florida Clean Marina-certified facility, offers bulk fuel delivery and pump-out services for superyachts, a private club for captains and crew, a fitness center, office space with a conference room and a recreation center.

Earlier this year, Suntex bought Faro Blanco Marina in the Florida Keys, the Marinas at Little Harbor in Ruskin and Prime Marina Miami, which it renamed Bayshore Landing.

“This is our third asset in Broward County and our tenth asset in South Florida, and Suntex plans to announce additional growth in the Florida market in the very near future,” said CEO Bryan Redmond.
