Yacht Charters in Miami: Selecting the ideal yacht-charter experience in Miami is like going to an ice-cream parlor with more than 32 flavors. With so many marinas and charter companies in the area vying for the business, there is a fitting option for all comers. Long-term charters and short-term rentals are available. There are daytrips that offer sailing trips, fishing expeditions, and water-sports activities, such as scuba diving, snorkeling, and waterskiing. There are bareboat (no crew) and full-crew trips on catamarans and motor yachts. Convenient ports dot Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Key West.
A good example of what a yacht that sleeps six would offer is a Sunseeker Manhattan 84. It has three cabins and accommodations for a three-member crew. The saloon is roomy with a bar and plenty of space for seating. The plush cruisers can be decorated from ship to stern and feature ultra modern entertainment and communications equipment. There also are water and recreational toys aboard most chartered yachts to enhance nautical pleasures even more. Yachts used for sports-fishing adventures are usually shorter, such as the three Searay Sundancer Sports Yacht models, which range from around 36 to 50 feet in length.
Most crews included on a charted-yacht trip are made up of at least three members: a captain, a host, and a chef. There are full-crew, extended cruises on motor yachts ranging in length from 50 to 100 feet.
