Summerfield Boat Works was a boat yard along the New River in Fort Lauderdale, Florida from 1930 to 2006.[1] The boat yard was named after Hank Summerfield who traded a sloop for the property in 1940.[2] In 1960, Summerfield died, but the facility remained family owned.[3] Greyhawk Marine Group purchased the yard and renamed her as Pier 17 in February 2005.[4] As of October 2018, a real-estate development company out of Alabama, Hix Snedeker Companies, is pursuing approvals for the property to become South Fork Marina, a 34-slip mega-yacht facility.[5]
