There is a new smiling face at 17th Street Yacht Basin, Ft. Lauderdale’s premier marina that boasts 850 feet of Parallel Superyacht FaceDock directly on the Intracoastal Waterway.

Aubree Dunbar, a 4th generation Floridian with a degree in Human Sciences from Florida State University, holds the title of Assistant Dockmaster. Her knowledge of boats, the principles of docking and line handling, and local familiarity of the waterways in Ft. Lauderdale made her the perfect candidate for the job.

Boaters Have the Best Stories 

Aubree adds on a personal note, “For over 10 years, my husband and I have cruised the Intracoastal Waterway and the New River on our beloved 20’ Mako. I enjoy sharing my favorite boating areas, dock and dine spots, and ‘talking boats’ with customers who come in on smaller motor yachts and center consoles. Boaters have the best stories!”

The Future with USMG 

“One of the great things about working for Jim (Bronstien) and Kevin (Quirk),” concludes Aubree, “is they have multiple projects…there is always a new marina to talk about and maybe I will end up as Dockmaster at one someday.”
