Welcome to BoatStation's newsletter featuring all that's happening at Lauderdale Marina and the thriving businesses located here. In each issue, we'll be sharing current news and views from our historic marina on the Intracoastal Waterway in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. In addition to news from the marina itself, you'll also learn what's happening at 15th Street Fisheries restaurant and Drum Realty, all within the same core family of businesses. We look forward to sharing with you! Enjoy!
Our marina is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year, a real milestone for the family of the late Bob Cox, founder of Lauderdale Marina in 1948. This historic photograph shows Bob's wife and friends fueling up at the dock in the marina's first year of business on the inland waterway. We're still here, and under the same family ownership after seven decades! Visit our historical archive for more vintage views!
Check out this fascinating time-lapse video of the Lauderdale Marina Dock Cam on the Intracoastal Waterway as it was recorded over the past two years. The award-winning cam feed is one of the most watched live streams on the EarthCam network worldwide and is regularly used on national television broadcasts.

The Lauderdale Marina Boston Whaler dealership was opened in 1973, and our experienced team has remained the go-to group of Whaler specialists in South Florida for countless individuals and boating families throughout Broward County over the past 45 years. They choose Lauderdale Marina for assistance selecting the best boat models for their needs, plus our award-winning service department for care and maintenance.
The Lauderdale Marina Boat Sales Team was a major participant at the Miami International Boat Show in February. The dealership's new Boston Whaler demo boat (above) was seen throughout the show, both at the Miami Marine Stadium pavilion and on Biscayne Bay where she made quite an impression. She's a 350 Outrage, fully loaded with all the latest marine tech toys and she sports a stunning hull wrap!

In September 2017, Lauderdale Marina became the exclusive sales and servicing dealership for Albemarle Sportfishing Boats in Southeast Florida. This affiliation brings a new line of boats to fishermen and families who love the comfort, space, and amenities offered by this very popular manufacturer. The photos above show the interior of the Albemarle 41 Convertible. Call 954-523-8507 for more information.
Our award-winning restaurant at the marina is 15th Street Fisheries, a landmark dining establishment on the Intracoastal Waterway for the past 40 years. Opened in 1978, the Fisheries is owned and operated by the same family whose marina was founded thirty years hence. Continuing today, the restaurant offers lunch, dinner and drinks with the best waterway views in South Florida. Call 954-763-2777 for upstairs dinner reservations. Arrive by car, boat or the water taxi! We're at dock stop #5.
One of the most popular items on the Fisheries Dockside menu is our world-famous crab cake slider. These amazing creations are housemade with blue crab, jumbo lump and claw meat, peppers, green onions and coleslaw, cooked till golden brown and served with Creole tartar sauce on slider brioche buns! Outstanding seafood!
Join us on the marina docks every day when we feed these giant air-breathing fish between 5:00-6:00pm. You can personally feed the tarpon with shrimp available for purchase in the marina's adjacent dock store. Interacting with these amazing sea creatures is one of the most popular and unique attractions in the South Florida area. It's a fun activity before or after dining at the Fisheries, and is perfect for kids!
Planning a party or special celebration? The "group dining" options at 15th Street Fisheries provide the ideal selection of beautiful rooms, award-winning cuisine, and top-flight service for your group, large or small. The Seminole River Room (pictured) was recently updated with a white backdrop (walls and ceiling) to enhance the nautical decor and panoramic waterway views. This room accommodates up to 85 guests. Call Dante Deritis, events coordinator, at 954-763-2777 to plan your next waterfront party!

In 2002, Bob Cox (Lauderdale Marina founder and co-founder of the Antique Boat Museum in Clayton, NY) decided his love of vintage boats could be expressed best through the recreation of a "Number Boat" built in the style of the Mower boats from days long past. Bob engaged the help of Northend Composites and set about building this beautiful replica. The original design was by Charles D. Mower.

Number 21 has since been handed down through the family and was recently featured in the current issue of Classic Boating Magazine. The photos above show two of the Cox great-grandsons enjoying use of their family's boat on the St. Lawrence River in upstate New York and also on the Whiskey River in Fort Lauderdale.
