Hurricane Preparation and Readiness

Hurricane preparation for yachts is a tremendously important aspect of yacht maintenance. South Florida yachts are particularly vulnerable to the damaging effects of hurricanes, due to the area’s robust hurricane season.

Yacht Management South Florida can keep your boat safe and secure during a hurricane at our Fort Lauderdale marina. We offer both offshore slips and onshore storage.

Protected Fort Lauderdale Marina

The closer to shore your yacht is during a hurricane, the safer it is likely to be. Our Fort Lauderdale marina is in an inland waterway sheltered on both sides by dense vegetation, making it especially secure from the harsh weather conditions that come with hurricanes.

We recommend reserving a dock slip at our Fort Lauderdale marina or hauling your boat ashore and storing it in our full-service boatyard.

Comprehensive Hurricane Plan

Our Fort Lauderdale marina yacht management experts will go over your yacht’s hurricane plan with you and offer suggestions for improvement. This should be done well in advance of a hurricane warning, and preferably before the start of the hurricane season.

We offer several marina and dock contracts that will accommodate to the requirements of your yacht in South Florida. Additionally, our full set of boatyard and dockside yacht maintenance services can meet all your yacht maintenance, storing, and protection needs both during hurricane season and outside of it.

Hurricane Provisions We Offer

Our marina managers and dock attendants will ensure your boat is securely moored and anchored to withstand a hurricane’s winds and storm surge. Our hurricane preparation and readiness checklist is comprehensive, which includes:

  • Docking boat to sturdy and maintained docks with tall pilings
  • Hauling boat ashore, securing on jack stands and strapping to an anchor point
  • Removal of canvas, sails, dinghies, and other removable items on deck to reduce windage
  • Mooring with extra lines and longer lines to account for higher winds and water levels

Our goal is to ensure our clients’ yachts stay safe, secure, and free from damage during a hurricane. Visit our South Florida marina to learn more about our hurricane preparation for yachts and other readiness services.
