Yachting Lifestyle

Experience South Florida and Beyond.

26' Grand Craft Yacht

South Florida is a hub for yachting and boasts a diverse range of yachts that cater to various preferences and lifestyles, from sailing and sport fishing yachts to catamarans and luxury superyachts. Few lifestyles can match the allure of yachting in South Florida. With its pristine waters, vibrant social scene, and world-class marinas, the region has become a magnet for yacht enthusiasts and beginners alike looking to indulge in the ultimate maritime experience. From cruising along the stunning coastline to hosting glamorous parties on deck, the yachting lifestyle in South Florida offers a unique blend of relaxation, adventure, sophistication, and excitement. 

Yachting also provides a personalized and customizable experience. Yacht owners and charter guests can tailor their itineraries, activities, and dining preferences to their liking while escaping from the demands of daily life. Yachting is far more than simply for leisure. It is the perfect setting for social events, parties, gatherings, and corporate entertaining! It can provide a unique space for networking and socializing that will leave an impression on your guests.

We have a number of exciting yachting events in our local area, like the Palm Beach International Boat Show and the Stuart Boat Show. Often featuring exhibitions of luxury yachts, marine products, the latest maritime technology, and an array of maritime activities that the whole family will enjoy. If you want to venture farther south, the Miami Yacht Show and the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show are some of the biggest in South Florida that any maritime lover will enjoy.

85' Burger Yacht

Many travelers venture to the coast to partake in yachting and various watersports because of the clear, turquoise waters, beautiful beaches, underwater reefs, picturesque coves, and charming island chains. You can find these renowned yachting locations across South Florida, like The Florida Keys, Miami, Palm Beaches, Boca Raton, Delray Beach, and Fort Lauderdale. Some local destinations in and around Palm Beach and Jupiter include a quiet anchorage in a small lake that is bordered by a 1,200-acre nature preserve that is home to a stunning ocean beach (accessible by boats only, so never crowded) as well as nature trails, a variety of endangered species and 1,200-pound loggerhead turtles!  Escaping to a place you can truly call Paradise – even for a few hours or a day – can be incredibly restorative and, over time, offer a priceless result: health & happiness.

Even in the mild winters, South Florida’s ocean waters are ideal for family-friendly water activities all year. From scuba diving and snorkeling to paddleboarding and jet skiing, they add extra excitement to your yachting adventure. Cap off your day by docking at one of the many waterfront restaurants, or hire a private chef to enjoy exquisite meals while enjoying breathtaking sunset views to create an unforgettable memory.
