Bareboat monohull charter in Miami...?

Hello all,

Well, I was going to take my wife and 2 boys to the BVI this summer for their very first bareboat experience...until I read the COVID-19 rules...and saw the added cost...and the added headache.

So, the plan has morphed into chartering from Miami. The plan is now a 7-10 day trip sailing down the Keys and back up. Maybe not enough time to get to Key West and back, but enjoying what we can get to.

My stumbling block is finding good information about reputable chartering companies in Miami. The web is a mess. I don't want to rent a 110-foot luxury motoryacht, which is apparently 99.9% of what Miami offers. I want a simple monohull, less than 40 feet long, 2 cabins/1 head, that we can bareboat for a week to 10 days without breaking the bank.

How do I go about finding reputable charter companies? (And I'll also take any advice you want to give on whether a Keys charter trip is a good option)

This guy was really helpful when I looked into doing a Miami charter.

They had Beneteaus.
