|Hilton Ft. Lauderdale Marina, Florida
Coastal Systems performed a hydrographic survey of the megayacht slips at the Hilton Ft. Lauderdale Marina along the Intracoastal Waterway. The marina is located on 17th Street, just north of Port Everglades.
The slips can accommodate vessels up to 300 feet long, and the hydrographic survey was conducted along the 700 linear feet of marginal bulkhead to evaluate the need for maintenance dredging. The survey was conducted with an automated hydrographic survey system operated from Coastal Systems custom aluminum 25-foot survey vessel.
Contours were generated from digital terrain modeling software, and maintenance dredging volumes were calculated for a range of depths as coordinated with the marina manager to restore the megayacht slips. A base map was prepared along with an engineering report summarizing the maintenance dredging recommendations.
