Contractors have filed construction liens against the company behind Seahaven Superyacht Marina in Florida, alleging unpaid work and services provided. The liens total nearly $1.12 million.
According to Broward County records, Dania Marina Partners, the owner of the property, faces five claims. They add up to $1,119,651.70, with the largest single claim being approximately $934,000. The five liens pertain to items such as construction of the clubhouse and related facilities, paving, as well as signage. The filings reflect materials and services provided between August 2017 and March of this year. They do not, however, impact operations of the marina itself.
Under Florida law, contractors who work on a property or provide materials for it and are not paid can file a construction lien, to enforce their claim for payment.

Seahaven Superyacht Marina opened in Dania Beach earlier this year. During the early planning stages a few years ago, it carried the name Dania Mega Port. Accommodating megayachts to 250 feet (76 meters), it suits both power and sailing yachts. No drawbridges restrict access to the site, on the Dania Cut-Off Canal, from the Atlantic Ocean. The marina is in proximity to Derecktor Shipyards as well as Dania Cut Superyacht Repair, should visiting yachts require service. Conveniences on site include a clubhouse, with a crew lounge as well as conference room.
While Dania Marina Partners owns the property upon which it sits, a company by the name of Seven Kings Holdings owns the Seahaven Superyacht Marina brand.
