Re: Charter Miami & Upper Keys 7 days /6 nights

Clarifying our pricing- We need the charter portion to be about $5,500 to $6,000, additional slip fees at Miami Beach Marina might be $350 per night ($1,750), $150 per day ($750) for day sail crew. Total $8,500. (w/o airfare) Any better price gives the girls additional shopping money. Private Message me if you can help or post your advice.

Fun In The Sun Yachts has cats for rent in your price range. They are in Ft. Lauderdale, but they will preposition in Miami for a fee. It looks like they charge $200 / day for a captain and $125-$150 for an additional mate.

Fun In The Sun Yachts – Florida Bareboat Sailing Charters

Note: I have no affiliation with them, and I've never directly chartered from them. I did an ASA 106 class aboard one of their Lagoon 440s for a week trip to Bimini and back through a different organization.
