Bellingham Marine has opened its eighth U.S. office in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
The new regional office is located adjacent to the Bahia Mar Yachting Center at 651 Seabreeze Blvd, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316. The Fort Lauderdale office will serve southern Florida as well as the Caribbean market.
“There is no substitute for a local presence,” said Bellingham Marine President Everett Babbitt. “Every community is unique. Having a local presence in southern Florida helps us gain a better understanding of the opportunities and the challenges faced by marina owners and operators in the region. It also enables us to better provide a timely response, reliable service and localized support to our clients in and around the Caribbean.”
“Although we pride ourselves in being an international marina builder and dock manufacturer, we also take pride in maintaining small company values, where accessibility, relationships within the local community and support of local associations remains paramount,” added Babbitt.
