Looking to Charter Sailboat for Four Months - Miami, FL

Hello there,

My wife and I are making a temporary move to Miami, where I'll be working as a kiteboarding instructor and small motorboat captain for a touring company. We'll be there January - April 2011. We love sailing, but have not yet purchased our own boat. Does anyone know if it's possible to charter/rent a sailboat for a 4 month term (and live aboard)?

Anyone in the Miami, FL area looking to get some income from their sailboat? We'd love to rent it for the time period above! We're looking for something in the 35-45' range, must have a slip. We're looking to pay about $1000/mo (+/-).

I can understand why there are no other replies here. You're expecting a lot for someone to lease their 35' - 45' yacht to you for $1000 a month. If I could do that I wouldnt need to ever own a yacht. I dont think anyone would buy one if they could lease it for so little. My yacht's not in your region, but if I were to ever consider leasing it, I would'nt be even considering it for less than $1000 per week, in fact thats nowhere near enough.
