It’s no surprise that boating in Florida is popular. Demand for docks is at an all-time high, particularly in West Palm Beach. At Olara, a 1.6-million-square-foot condominium and rental property that will be built on the Intracoastal Waterway, a private dock is being planned to respond to the market.

The dock is the latest in resort-style amenities promised at Olara. The development will offer six boat slips that will be available for sale. Olara’s five-star yachting concierge will even service them.

Also, private houseboats will be available to residents who are interested in boating but haven’t committed to ownership just yet. Private yacht charters, catamaran scuba and snorkel tours, fishing excursions and day trips on the water will also be available.

Residents will also have access to water activities including paddleboards and floating tubes.
