Intracoastal dredging will ease navigation for super-yachts
Make way for more super-yachts in Fort Lauderdale.
Officials on Wednesday said they’ve selected Cashman Dredging to deepen a section of the Intracoastal Waterway in a two-year project that will allow bigger boats to navigate the area.
The announcement came on the eve of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, billed as the world’s largest in-water boat show and known for offering yachts 80 feet and longer.
The $17 million dredging project will make it easier for super-yachts to take part in future boat shows and reach marinas and repair yards, officials said.
