View Yacht Charters

Florida’s “sunshine state” provides an alternative cruising ground for those looking for a cosmopolitan charter.

Famed for its year-round balmy temperatures, there is much more to the “Sunshine State” of Florida than Mickey and Minnie. The stunning coastline boasts long stretches of sandy beaches, world-class golf courses, and elegant palm-lined boulevards that are home to an array of restaurants and bars. The large peninsula is a great place to berth your yacht and step ashore to explore the chic cities of Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Palm Beach before cruising to the Florida Keys for a cosmopolitan Florida yacht rental with an island feel.

Exploring Florida’s Coastal Charm

Sunset Serenades and Seaside Sophistication in Key West

From gazing at epic sunsets in laid-back Key West to relaxing on Miami’s uber-cool South Beach to riding an airboat through the wild Everglades, the “Sunshine State,” Florida offers many attractions both aboard and ashore for anyone looking for cosmopolitan Florida yacht charters.

Navigating the Jewels of the Florida Keys

Well known in yachting circles for the chain of 42 islands known as the Florida Keys, the coastline is famous for its long sandy beaches, world-class golf courses, and the cosmopolitan cities of Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Palm Beach. The latter provides an impressive array of galleries, entertainment, and nightlife. At the same time, the Florida Keys are a haven for sailing, diving, and sun-worshippers with their balmy waters and warm breezes.

Setting Sail for Captiva and Sanibel’s Tranquil Shores

Embarking on a sailing vacation from the lively marinas of Fort Lauderdale, one can experience the tranquil beauty of Captiva Island and Sanibel Island, jewels of the Gulf Stream that offer serene beaches and captivating sunsets. As you navigate through these pristine waters, the expertise of charter experts ensures a seamless journey, allowing you to fully immerse in the dream of chartering through paradise.

Discovering New Horizons with Extended Yacht Journeys

A great way to spend a vacation on the water is to begin in Palm Beach, easing into the charter with a gentle cruise south, passing Delray Beach and Boca Raton, stepping ashore to Fort Lauderdale before hitting Miami and onto the easy-paced Florida Keys. Extend your private yacht rental by heading back up the Florida Keys, discovering new anchorages, and revisiting old favorites. For those looking to venture further, the sailing adventures can continue towards the pristine waters of Naples, or even set course for the rugged coastlines of New England, exploring a whole new world of island paradises and family memories in North American waters.
