You’re going to want to really do your research when it comes to yacht charters in the heart of Miami. Don’t just randomly rent a yacht or you may not be pleased with it in the long run. Here is some information that will teach you what you need to do when you’re interested in this type of extra curricular activity!
A yacht is going to need to be taken care of as you use it as a rental. If you’re going to have a party on it and a lot of people are going to show up, be sure you tell them that if they get out of hand then they will have to get off and schedule their own pickup regardless of where you all head off to; not to mention the person limit on boats in this area which is only between 10 to 14 people. You need to go over the rules with your guests. That way, someone doesn’t break something because then you’ll have to pay the charter company to fix the issue when you turn it in. I’m sure you can imagine how expensive this might get! The average external fix for a yacht is well over $5,000.
Figure out what you’re going to have to pay to rent one before you pick a place to work with- this comes down to how big you want the boat to be, how many people you want to bring, how long you want it for (you can usually choose between a 4-hour or 8-hour charter), and what you want the company to include (food, drinks, a fun excursion, jet skies, etc). You want to get prices from a wide variety of rental companies so you can get a good idea of what you should have to pay and how much the prices are in the Miami area in general. Don’t just select a company to work with based on price, however. They also need to have a good reputation because even if they are cheap to work with, if they don’t make their customers happy they’re not worth scheduling your luxurious activities with.
A company that rents yachts needs to be well reviewed before you work with them. You need to make very sure that the company is going to be able to meet and exceed your needs and has a reliable, fun, knowledge captain and crew on board, too. If they are known for not doing that good of a job, then you know that you should work with another company so you don’t end up being unhappy with the end result you get when spending all that money. There are plenty of awesome options in the Miami area so look up reviews and find a company with a good reputation that you know also has fair prices.
A yacht company will never offer for you to drive the boat or anything of that sense. They’ll have a captain and crew included in the price so you stay safe and have someone driving you to the hot spots in the area. However, you can also just get one that is docked so you don’t really need to worry about anyone controlling it for you or going anywhere; we often see people doing this on days that the weather is terrible. Many times regardless of the weather, you’ll have a no-refund policy within 24 hours of your trip. This means you’ll still be paying if the weather sucks, so you might as well try to enjoy it anyway while docked somewhere in a marina. If you know about operating yachts you can generally save some money because that means you won’t have to have a captain on board. But who really knows how to or are licensed to operate one besides experts, right?
If you’re looking for a fun time in the water, sandbars, and jet skies, you need to know that you’re not wasting your money. There are plenty of companies out there that you can work with that will make you happy. However, you will also find companies that are not that good which is why it pays to do your research.

Yacht Rentals During the Coronavirus Pandemic
Although many cities within the Us, Miami included, have decided to roll back rules regarding large party gatherings, nightclub & bar openings, mask wearing, and more, it’s better to go with your gut and follow any precautions you deem necessary to protect yourself and your family. This includes partying with large groups of people, and of course going to clubs. Who really wants to go to a club this weekend? No one. Regardless of if you have the money to spend, most others don’t and the club scene just won’t be the same. Our solution to this is keeping your circle relatively small (up to 14 people) and renting a yacht for the day, or night. This will ensure you enjoy yourself with the option to act bougie and impress whoever it is you have your eye on. We know people come to Miami to show off, and we won’t try to hold you back from that. Instead, we will facilitate your charter and make sure everything is set up to perfection.
