Relocation With a Boat

Moving a boat can be a challenge, but remembering the beautiful waters that await you can get you through it. If you are lucky enough to own a boat, jet ski, or any other type of watercraft, you’ll be glad you’re relocating to the yachting capital of the world, Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Here are some tips for enjoying your boat right away.


Permits & Storage

For those that won’t be docking on their own lake, or don’t want to put the boat in the water right away, finding a marina is pretty easy to do. There are many marinas with different amenities that you can choose from in the area. Check out the Marina Bay which boasts full resort amenities and 150 slips for vessels up to 130 feet long.

Also, remember that a car is just like a boat in terms of registration. You’ll definitely want to remember to register your watercraft in the state of Florida. Active military persons can wait to register their watercraft until after their current registration expires. And if your boat is not motored powered and less than 16 feet then you are not required to register at all.
