Bradford Marine in Florida Starts Renovations
by Bob Arrington – Southern Boating
Bradford Marine has been part of the Fort Lauderdale boating scene for 50 years providing boat owners with excellent service and making a healthy contribution to the local economy. Purchased last year by experienced boaters and businessmen John and Michael Kelly, Bradford Marine is preparing to launch into a new era of yacht service, yacht repair, and maintenance. Bradford Marine’s industry-leading reputation will continue along with new technologies and facility upgrades. The company’s first phase will include new crew amenities, expanded dockage, parking, landscaping, and a new facility for captains, crew, boat owners, and the yachting community to gather and connect. Upgrades to dockside electric service and new high-speed broadband service are part of the Phase One renovation. Plans are also in place to increase short and long-term dockage and brokerage sales.
