The funds will go toward refinancing the site at 2001 Southwest 20th Street, the Sun-Sentinel reported. The boatyard can fit yachts up to 170 feet long. The center, which has a staff of 30, bought a neighboring marina to expand in 2005, then invested $40 million for renovations in 2008.

The new lower interest rates will result in “very significant savings,” Lauderdale Marine Center owner Selvin Passen told the Sun-Sentinel. [Sun-Sentinel]Mark Maurer
