Best Fort Lauderdale Contractors: My Little Black Book


My Little Black Book of Top Quality Luxury Yacht Contractors in Fort Lauderdale

I, finally (four years later) feel like I have a solid black book of top quality contractors in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

It is so crucial to have people working on board that you trust to do a fantastic job, be professional, return your calls, and actually show up when they say they will.

Finding these gems, however, is like looking for the bridge console piece when it gets sucked into the vacuum bag. It leaves you on your knees feeling stressed, and a little bit dirty.
