Date: Tue, Oct 1, 2019


Historic superyacht refit, repair and maintenance yard RMK Merrill-Stevens (RMK MS) is known as Florida's first full-service yacht refit and repair facility and is located on both sides of the Miami River. As boat show season approaches, the yard is working to bring business back to the resurging Miami and South Florida marine industry.

The RMK MS team is prepared to share new information about the company's $30 million renovations, job openings, and discuss the capabilities, great work, services and amenities RMK Merrill-Stevens has to offer. RMK MS will have a large presence at the world's largest in-water boat show – the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS). RMK MS Team members in attendance will include President and CEO Greg Cox, Electronic Services Division Manager David Gratton, North Yard Project Manager Jack Schneider, new Recruitment Manager Cameron Guyot, yacht brokers Michael Feldstein and Robert Ponce from Merrill-Stevens Yachts, and more.

"We have more than ever to share with owners, captains, crews and the marine industry at this year's boat show in Fort Lauderdale," says Greg Cox. RMK MS will exhibit in the FLIBS Superyacht Pavilion at the show. "In addition to presenting the many changes that are being finalized at the RMK MS Shipyard, including our new 2,700 ton shiplift and new Electronic Systems Division, we will be sharing our career campaign that will bring nearly 100 new employees to our yards, which are just minutes from Downtown Miami," Mr. Cox continues.

RMK MS is gaining the attention of superyacht ownership groups and captains around the world due to their new capabilities, facilities and improved services. The company is the only shipyard south of Jacksonville capable of and qualified to work on large United States Coast Guard vessels. Recent on-site additions include new training facilities, classrooms, furniture, and a 100-ton travel lift. The area surrounding the RMK MS shipyard is also evolving with new restaurants, condominiums, Aston Martin Luxury Residences, Island Gardens Marina and River Landing Project within walking distance.

The shipyard will reopen in early 2020 after renovations are complete, which will turn the company's North Yard into the Miami Superyacht Refit Center. RMK Merrill-Stevens services boats to super and mega yachts, from 30' – 300', and all work meets the high standards of ABS, Lloyds, Bureau Veritas, and USCG regulations.
