Fort Lauderdale, the Yachting Capital of the World is home to 50,000 registered vessels. With more than 300 miles of navigable inland waterways and proximity to the Caribbean Islands, it is not surprising that Fort Lauderdale appeals to those with a passion for nautical pursuits and their luxurious yachts. Demand for dockage in Fort Lauderdale increases year-on-year with the supply struggling to meet the demand. Consequently, marina fees are exorbitant. Annual dockage fees at one of the least expensive marinas range between $50,372 to $ 112,420 plus utilities. Based on these numbers, it is not uncommon for mega yacht owners to purchase a waterfront property when they decide to go bigger on their vessel.

the impact of technology is pervasive, changing the landscape of modern business and the real estate industry is no exception. As a specialist and a business owner, I perceive technology as a positive fluid component, a welcome disruption to the real estate industry.

When a trio of enterprising gentlemen purchased the area called Coral Ridge Properties in 1953 for $19 million from Chicago attorney and real estate developer, Arthur T. Galt, the huge track of land reaching south from Sunrise Boulevard northward to Commercial Boulevard, and west from Federal Highway eastward to the Intracoastal Waterway was not yet considered part of Fort Lauderdale!

A prized parcel in this purchase was an area that had been earmarked for a Palm Beach-like village to be called the Floranada Club, only to be halted from further progress with the land bust and hurricane of 1926. Coral Ridge Country Club became this desirable tract when James S. Hunt, Joseph Taravella and Stephen Calder began developing the area in 1954 with Robert
