During these times of social distancing, chartering a sailboat might just be the perfect vacation—just you and your family or a few close friends aboard and the opportunity to be just as secluded as you wish. Now there are two more domestic bases to choose from in sunny Florida: Coconut Grove and St. Petersburg. 

Dream Yacht Charter is opening their new base in Coconut Grove, which is located in central Miami, on August 7, 2020. This base is convenient to all that Southeast Florida has to offer, from Biscayne Bay through the Florida Keys and Dry Tortugas. Enjoy excellent diving, fishing and sailing, not to mention some of the best sunsets anywhere. 

The Miami fleet includes an Astrea 42, Bali 4.5 and a Fountaine Pajot Motor Yacht 37, available for bareboat and skippered charters. Guests will be able to sail one way and start or end their charters in Key West, Key Largo and Marathon, as well as Miami.

Dream Yacht Charter founder, Loic Bonnet, said: “We continue to rapidly adapt to the new trend for domestic tourism for our US customers who want to sail closer to home. The opening of our new base in Miami comes a few months after opening at Compass Point Marina in St. Thomas, USVIs, which has proved incredibly popular. We’re pleased to partner once again with Navtours.”

On the West Coast of Florida, The Moorings now has charters available through Sailing Florida in St. Petersburg, Florida, at the Vinoy Resort Marina. Florida’s Gulf Coast includes some of the state’s most beautiful beaches, and the cruising grounds include picturesque Sanibel and Captiva islands, Tarpon Springs, Marco Island, and even Key West and the Dry Tortugas. Steady breezes, year-round sunshine, wildlife, amazing sunsets, secluded anchorages and modern marinas are what you can expect from a sailing vacation in southwest Florida. The fleet includes a variety of new monohulls from Jeanneau and Beneteau and sail and power cats from Fountaine Pajot.
