About Sailing Florida - St. Petersburgs #1 Rated Sailing & Motor Yacht Charter
Finally, boating made hassle free and affordable!
You no longer have to own your own boat or take years of sailing classes to enjoy the water.
Gone are the days when owning a boat was a dream you couldn’t afford.
Now anyone can learn to navigate and charter a boat, instead of owning one.
But – if you do own one, we can help you out by putting it into our fleet and letting charters help pay the cost of ownership. Boating is now more economical and more accessible than ever before.
When Sailing Florida began, we recognized the fact that people love boating, but the time they had available to use their boat was limited and in many cases cost prohibitive. So why not charter with us and enjoy the newest boats on the market, and leave the cleaning and maintenance up to us?
We also noticed that many people were interested in experiencing sailing, but didn’t know how or where to learn how to sail. Our sailing school offers American Sailing Association (ASA) certification courses. The ASA recognized our school with a “GOLD STAR” distinction.
We offer the entire range of classes from ASA 101: Basic Sailing to ASA 106: Advanced Coastal Cruising and Advanced Cruising Standard (#114). Our certified instructors are committed to providing the best educational experience, with a blend of hands on training and curriculum in the fundamental skills of sailing.
The last piece of the puzzle has been the addition of fractional ownership and leasing. We offer expert yacht management for owners who would like to share the cost of owning a boat, while eliminating the time and hassle of ownership. The choices include purchasing a new yacht for fractional ownership, purchasing a share from our inventory, or just leasing now and purchasing later.
The future looks bright and we are happy with the course we’ve set. Cruising into the sunset or across the bay, Sailing Florida is about experiencing the natural beauty of Florida’s West Coast and the exhilaration of boating.
Come join us for a bareboat or crewed charter – day or week long – so you can finally take that family vacation, sneak away for a romantic weekend, hold a special corporate event or team building adventure, hone your sailing skills in one of our ASA accredited courses, or just relax and enjoy a spectacular Florida sunset.
