What does it mean to charter a yacht?

A sailboat or motor yacht is rented or chartered, for the purpose of traveling to different coastal or island destinations. These companies also occasionally offer skippered charters, which means that the boat is provided with a skipper but no additional crew members. Skippered charter refers to the fact that the yacht is provided with a crew.

The following items are usually included in a yacht charter.

All-inclusive rates are available for the majority of our crewed yacht charters, which includes 8 days/7 nights aboard a private yacht with a professional Captain and Chef, three meals per day, requested beverages, a standard bar, fuel, and all expenses associated with the operation of the vessel, as well as the use of on-board sports equipment.

Different types of yachts

What exactly distinguishes a yacht from a large boat and what distinguishes a yacht from a large boat? Yachts are not defined by law, but most boaters consider them to be any type of sea vessel used solely for recreational or pleasure purposes, such as cruising, entertaining, water sports, fishing, or providing year-round accommodations for a small number of people.

When taking overnight trips, yachts are usually large enough to accommodate some form of sleeping quarters (cabin), as well as a kitchen (galley) and a bathroom (head). The vessels themselves are also large enough that they require more than just human inputs (for example, rowing) in order to move forward.

Among the many characteristics that distinguish yachts are their mode of propulsion, size, design, amenities, and functionality.

  • Classic Yachts.
  • Sailing Yachts.
  • Motor Yachts.
  • Displacement Yachts.
  • Open Yachts / Sports Cruisers.
  • Semi-Displacement Yachts.
  • Fishing Yachts / Sportsfishers.
  • Hybrid Yachts.

Chartering a luxury yacht for the Florida Keys

When deciding where in the world to go on a yacht charter, many of us are strangely naive to the incredible experiences that are there in our very own backyards.

It is possible to find all of the elements necessary for an unforgettable, life-changing boat charter in Florida, including coconut palms and crystal-clear waters, white-sand beaches, and stunning coral reefs. You need to look no further than Orlando, Florida's state capital if you want to find water sports or wildlife refuges, boutique shopping, or live music on the streets of Florida. As well as boasting some of the world's best reef diving, Florida is home to a rich history of pirates, shipwrecks, and battling civilizations that can be explored and learned about.

As a starting point for your Florida yacht charter, you can explore the vibrant city of Miami, which is filled with art deco and skyscrapers, as well as white sand beaches and waving palm trees. Enjoy shopping at opulent stores, dining at world-renowned restaurants, and dancing at some of the most exclusive VIP clubs in the world. Known as "Little Havana," it is a neighborhood where old men gather to play dominoes and smoke cigars, and where Cuban music floats through the air from the coffee shops and wood-paneled bars that line the streets. The state of Florida is known for its world-class sportfishing, which can be enjoyed off the coast, or you can head inside to look for alligators while flying through the Everglades' long sea-grass beds on an airboat.

Leave the bright lights of Miami in the rearview mirror and cruise leisurely down to the famous Florida Keys on your private yacht to discover a region that has taken on a special significance in American culture, a place that is both delightfully calm and somewhat, endearingly bizarre at the same time. Explore the Florida Keys on a Florida yacht charter, as there is no other way to do justice to this incredibly beautiful archipelago, which juts out from the shore like a necklace of islands in a sapphire sea. There is no other way to do justice to this incredibly beautiful archipelago.



The islands of the Florida Keys are unlike any other place on the planet, and they are a must-see. If you ask me, the most memorable part of my trip was either eating Key Lime Pie under the shade of coconut palms or visiting Ernest Hemingway's home in Key West. The cobblestone alleys of Islamadora, with their old Spanish architecture and chic art galleries, are the perfect place for those who enjoy meandering through cobblestone alleys and exploring chic art galleries. Some attribute this to the town's fascinating mix of natives, which includes bohemians, fishermen, drifters (including Hispanics and Native Americans), and the town's welcoming attitude toward people from all walks of life who happen to find themselves in this small town. The sight of animals on the streets, such as the occasional goat or donkey roaming along a village road covered with beach sand, or the chicken that strolled right past your restaurant table in the olden days, could be a draw.

Also present is the water in Florida—that crystal-clear sea that glistens in every shade of blue imaginable. In the Florida Keys, the tranquil waters are protected by the only living coral reef in the United States, resulting in a riot of color and life beneath the surface of the ocean. Scuba divers and snorkelers will be delighted to find numerous shipwrecks on the seafloor, which are a haven for marine life. Divers with a sense of adventure can go exploring on the wrecks.

Luxury yacht

As you travel deeper into the Keys, you'll notice that the incredible reef prevents the soft white sand from reaching the beaches to a significant extent. Not to worry, there are numerous sandbars to choose from where you can spend the day snorkeling and picnicking in complete safety. Every day, you'll spend your time diving for lobster and delivering it to the yacht's chef, who will prepare it so you can enjoy it for lunch on deck. An early morning wakeboarding excursion around the yacht, as well as a paddleboard excursion into the mangrove forests, where shy manatees and fish hide in the shallows, are both highly recommended.

You can visit luxury resort spas, exquisite dining, and boutique shopping while on your Florida Keys yacht charter if you want to indulge in the ultimate in luxury while on land. For history buffs, the Dry Tortugas, where the massive Fort Jefferson, built to break the back of piracy and still standing as the largest brick structure in the Western Hemisphere, is a must-see. As one of the many wildlife refuges in the Florida Keys, this location will also appeal to those who enjoy the outdoors and the great outdoors. Also noteworthy is that the coral reef on this island is in excellent condition.

As a result of the breathtaking beauty of the sunsets in this part of the world, people flock to the shoreline to watch them, and then the street celebration begins, complete with fire-eaters, tumbling acrobats, and rum drinks flowing under a starry night sky. On the other hand, you can simply sit on your yacht and take in the sunsets - perhaps while lounging in the Jacuzzi with a cocktail in your hands while feeling the cool breeze of Florida breeze sweep across your bare shoulders as you watch the sea transform into a moving canvas of burnished red and gold.

With a luxury boat charter in the Sunshine State, you can leave all of your worries behind and enjoy the state's relaxed pace.
