Fort Lauderdale Premier Yacht Towing Provider Since 1978
Cape Ann Marine Towing and Salvage has been providing towing and salvage services in South Florida since 1978. While Cape Ann Towing started out towing vessels of all sizes, Cape Ann quickly became Fort Lauderdale’s premier yacht towing provider in the late 70’s. Since then, we have continued to be the provider of choice for captains that value experience and knowledge of the South Florida waterways.
In 1998, Cape Ann Towing’s parent company, Port Everglades Launch Service Inc., began to launch operations in Port Everglades providing transport of ship’s stores and crew to ships in the Port Everglades anchorage and offshore.
In 2003, Cape Ann Towing was purchased by Captain Courtney L. Day who had been a captain with Cape Ann since 1990. Captain Courtney continues to operate the company’s tugboats utilizing his 30 years of yacht towing and salvage experience and over 40 years of boating experience. Captain Courtney began his boating career as a lobster fisherman on Monhegan Island off Maine’s midcoast, continued his career as a captain with Port Everglades Towing in Port Everglades for approximately 10 years and continues as the owner/operator of Cape Ann Towing and Salvage and Port Everglades Launch Service.
Cape Ann’s captains are some of the best in the industry; many of them have over 15 years of experience specifically towing yachts and performing salvage and launch operations with Cape Ann Towing.
“I am always impressed how these guys do the tows.”– Captain Steven Naimoli
“I was impressed with the dedication and responsiveness from Cape Ann Towing. When I called another tow company towards the end of the day they had said it was late and only wanted to tow me partial way. Cape Ann was quick and extremely professional. Highly recommend!”– Grif Blackstone, Ft. Lauderdale, FL
