Evolution of the RMK MS North Yard

RMK Merrill-Stevens was Florida's first shipyard, with its history dating back over 135 years. The North Shipyard at RMK Merrill-Stevens recently underwent new changes that turned the oldest and most trusted shipyard in Florida into one of the most advanced yards available to yacht and superyacht owners, captains, and crews. These updates were part of one of the largest investments made to a shipyard or marina in Florida in years. More than $30M was invested in the yard, bringing a new look, additional amenities, and much more to love for clients and their vessels.
