Florida Yachts Charters has two locations in south Florida: Miami and Key West.
We can offer sailing lessons at any of our locations. Our fleet is extensive, ranging from a Beneteau ASA First 22 to a Beneteau sense 55; we have monohulls and catamarans in our fleet. All our vessels are new or within a few years of new, enrolled in our yacht charter fleet.
We currently have eight ASA certified instructors available to teach courses from ASA 101 through ASA 106, including ASA 114. All of our instructors are USCG licensed captains.
Our Miami location is on Biscayne Bay, one of the premier locations in America for learning to sail year round. All of our locations have protected sailing waters close by.
We offer composite courses that teach three or more levels of certification in one week. One of the many advantages of these courses is the huge savings on hotel fees because you sleep on the boat.
If you are interested in chartering, we will take you through the Bareboat Charter Certification so you can book a boat from our extensive fleet and we’ll give you a discount on the charter.
