Southeasternmost state in the USA, Florida is a dreamland for many a sailor. With hundreds of miles of sandy beaches, a notable nightlife and arts scene in Miami, interesting itinerary around neighboring islands in the Keys and optional long-term cruising towards Bahamas and back, it is indeed a sailing destination many dream about. With a very special, Leopard 45 sailing catamaran arriving shortly, families or couples and friends can have a unique yachting adventure in the area.
Year-round summery climate in the ''Sunshine State'' is almost guaranteed, so much so that the stunning coastline with long stretches of sandy beaches can be enjoyed at will. With numerous entertainment centres, most visually appealing with palm-lined boulevards, famous bars and restaurants, top marinas and lively night scene, this is a top yachtcharter destination for everyone. Epic sunsets on isolated beaches or major waterfronts allow you to relax and unwind all day and every day. And you can do so either on one of the 42 islands in laid back Key West or before partying in ultra-cool South Beach of Miami, before retail therapy in the cosmopolitan Palm Beach or before checking latest boats within the yachting Mecca of Fort Lauderdale.
On top, you can play a game of golf or rent an airboat in the wild Everglades in order to maximise on your yacht charter experience in Florida. Whatever your preferences, we invite you to charter the 3-en suite cabin, owner version of Leopard 45 sailing catamaran and embark on a yachting adventure of a lifetime, exploring the art galleries and entertainment venues or sail in the balmy waters of the region. Explore locations such as Delray Beach with an optional al-fresco meal on board or play a game of tennis at one of the many courts at Boca Raton, at both of which you can anchor or seek a safe mooring nearby. Snorkelling around Bache Shoal, and the quiet anchorage of Elliot Key some 20nm South from Miami, before sipping a self-made cocktail on the foredeck, while trying to spot swimming dolphins, can be your schedule on one of the days here.
On another day, we can arrange a rendez-vous diving trip to explore the replica of the Christ of the Abyss in the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park before dining at one of the famous locations at the Key West Bight. At Key Largo, some 30nm away from Elliot Key, your can anchor your Leopard 45 catamaran in front of Fish House, the local seafood restaurant and sample the catch of the day, before retiring on board to spend the evening gazing at the stars and planning your next 24hrs of Florida sailing adventure.
With optional one way charter between Miami and Key Largo, you can maximise your stay on this luxury charter yacht which has much improved layout, bigger volume, higher headroom and features a number of innovations against the older Leopard 44. Air-conditioned interior will be a welcome relaxing spot, given high humidity and heat that dominate in the area, all supported with extra electricity provided by 2x Solar Panels and 9kw Generator with which the saiing cat is equipped.
After hitting island of Islamorada, another 15nm from Key Largo, this self-proclaimed sportfishing capital of the world is the ideal location to anchor for 2 nights in a row stay, to allow you to embark on a big game fishing in the Atlantic shallows. A family framed picture made next to Ernest Hemingway's sportfishing replica can be the icing on the cake. One other final highlight on your Florida yacht charter can be the exploration of the southernmost area of the Keys, around Newfound Harbor and Hawk's Cay anchorage nearby. Canals and Venetian-style bridges at Duck Key can provide an additional insight into the local tourist offering on this day. Lots of snorkelling, diving directly off your swimming platform of S/Y KNOT DREAMEN' will be another fine experience. This especially as fine waters here are of a very special blue colour, warm and full of sandbars to which you can get with your dinghy, in order to enjoy total seclusion and privacy; ideal for covid-19 social distancing and self-isolation times.
Finally, before returning to your home port and checking-out the boat, make a final stopover at the Key West to swim and snorkel through Looe Key marine Sanctuary. When back on deck of your private sailing catamaran, get changed and head to a local bar such as Captain Tony's Saloon, pick up the binoculars and check if you can recognise anything on the nearby island of Cuba as from here you are not far from the unique latino island. End the night by watching the sunset from the deck of your boat or from the famous waterfront of Mallory Square at 400 Wall Street. When here, you may wish to consider options of buying one of the same models for your own private use or to enter her into a charter management programme; Whatever thoughts you have, give us a ring and let us assist you source out your own dream yacht.
