There are many things to consider when planning a yacht charter. What size of yacht, the style, and interior appointments, and whether a motor yacht, sailboat, catamaran, or cigarette racer is more suitable to the adventure you have planned.
We will guide you through our yacht selection, with suggestions about each layout and the space available for different activities. We will help you customize your itinerary, from romantic sunset cruise to dinner at a destination restaurant or a historic exploration. From the wildest parties to the most relaxing times spent with your family, we deliver exactly the experience you expect and more.
No, we can do all paperwork prior to your charter date by phone, email, or fax.
Yes! And when you do, we guarantee that even if that particular yacht is not available due to unforeseen circumstances, we will offer you an alternative of equal or greater size and service level. We never downgrade – we’d rather lose you to a competitor than disappoint you in any way.
Yes, we can show you as many boats as are in the harbor at any moment. Our yachts are in Miami, Miami Beaches, Ft. Lauderdale and Chicago.

Cancellation by charterer (you) for any reason must be received forty-eight (48) Hours prior to the scheduled departure date; otherwise, we may assess a thirty (30%) percent of the charter hire agreement as liquidated damages. However, that if we are able to rebook the yacht for all or part of the charter period, we shall refund to Charterer any amount by which the sums received from Charterer (less a cancellation fee equal to 30% of the total charter hire and all expenses incurred in arranging the rebooking) and the charter hire received from the substitute charterer for the rebooked dates exceed, in aggregate, the charter hire payable hereunder.
If we must cancel, for any reason, monies paid shall be refunded in full by us to the Charterer.
Half day charter is up to 4 hours. Full day charter is up to 8 hours. We also offer multi-day charters

Yes, all our yachts are insured by their owners and we also carry liability insurance. Owners keep their yachts fully insured or we simply refuse to book them.
The Yacht Owner’s insurance policy does not cover Charterer’s protection and indemnity during the term of the charter, and Charterer is responsible for obtaining such coverage if desired. Charterer shall not violate the terms of the Owner’s insurance policy, including, without limitation, the navigational limits it imposes.
Yes, we can pick-up and drop-off from your location for up to four guests. For more than 4 guests, we can arrange a limousine or car service for you at an additional fee, or you can call a taxi. We will help you with directions in case you have your own car/car rental.
We will coordinate as much of your day as you’d like. Plans can be made in advance or the day of the charter.
