Broward Yachts for Sale
Marine industry consultant James E. Bronstien, a former owner of the Rybovich Spencer Marina in West Palm Beach who worked at Broward Marine last year, said he visited Broward Marine recently, and it had stopped boat production.
“The market was a lot more difficult than they expected,” Bronstien said. “It’s a shame. I was rooting for them.”
Robert Roscioli, CEO of Roscioli Yachting Center in Fort Lauderdale, also said that Broward Marine has shut production of new boats and has a bare-bones staff for only boat service.
