Dania Beach Do It Yourself Boat Repair Facility
Fort Lauderdale’s Do-It-Yourself Boat Yard
We are the one-stop location for all of your maintenance and repair needs. Our 88 ton Marine Travelift® can handle sail or power boats from 25 ft up to 80 ft in length (with a maximum beam of 21 ft), and our friendly, experienced staff will haul your boat out, pressure wash the hull below the waterline and block it promptly and professionally. We also provide short hauls for surveys. The yard store carries a full line of quality anti-fouling paints, primers, zincs, painting supplies and stainless steel fasteners, all at competitive prices. Please note that all bottom paint and materials for below the waterline work and use must be purchased at Playboy Marine.
Spacious & Convenient Work Spaces
Each visiting boat receives a clean, spacious work space equipped with its own water connection plus 110v and 30 amp/50amp electrical hook-ups. We also provide at no charge, ladders and sturdy scaffolding for ease of access to elevated work areas. Our mobile crane is available for heavy lifts such as engines or generators, and to assist in stepping and un-stepping masts. Our work spaces are large enough that you can park right next to your boat.
A Variety of Marine Services Contractors
Don’t have the time or expertise to do the work yourself? Not a problem! We have several approved independent contractors with whom you can arrange fiberglass repair, roll-and-tip hull painting, application of antifouling paint, mast rigging, running gear repair, engine/mechanical repairs and more. These contractors all have years of experience. Contact one of our approved contractors by viewing our contractor directory, or request the list from our office by calling (954) 920-0533.
Easy Access at a Central Location
We are conveniently located on the Dania Cutoff Canal just south of Port Everglades. Look for us on the north side of the canal, about a mile west of the Intracoastal Waterway.
