Marina Palms Yacht Club & Residences, North Miami Beach, FL

The all-new, full-service marina at Marina Palms Yacht Club & Residences is now open and features brand new construction at a prime location on the ICW in North Miami Beach, Florida. Designed for vessels up to 100 feet LOA, the marina and private boat club allow residents to experience the benefits of a waterfront lifestyle. The property’s former marina built on the shores of Maule Lake was a popular boating destination in the 1970s and 80s, but the facility fell into disrepair until 2013 when crew started clearing the marina basin for a current depth of 9′ to 12′. The dock system features two fixed dock fingers that flank the north and south side of the marina and a floating dock spine that cuts down the center of the basin. All 112 slips have electricity and fiber optic cabling for voice, data and high speed Internet. The fuel station and high-speed dispensers are fed from two 12,000-gallon tanks providing both diesel and gasoline service. A fulltime dock master, dockhands and a yacht concierge will arrange for vessel cleaning, maintenance, provision, and even plan entertainment for yacht owners. The marina is the centerpiece of Marina Yacht Club & Residences, a development that features two, 25-story condominium towers with 468 units.
