FORT LAUDERDALE – A Fort Lauderdale business alleges yacht owners have not paid for repairs.
Nauti-Tech Inc. filed a complaint on May 16 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Fort Lauderdale Division against the vessel Serenity Atlantic alleging unpaid invoices.

Said amount has been unpaid and is still outstanding, the suit states.
