With the industry about the descend on Fort Lauderdale for the world’s largest in-water boat and yacht show, YATCO shares their top picks for charter yachts to check out on display at the show. While in town, why not book a yacht charter following the show to extend your stay in sunny Florida?
Mike Hutton, YATCO’s Director of Charter shares, “As Florida moves into the winter season, it couldn’t be a better place to charter a yacht for a long weekend or even a week. As the northern latitudes start to cool quickly, the sunshine state boasts fantastic weather, with the Bahamas only a short trip away too. If you are visiting the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in search of the perfect yacht to buy, why not live the lifestyle of owning that yacht for a short period, and charter it, before you possibly buy it?”
Read on for YATCO’s top picks of the hottest charter yachts due to be in the area during this year’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
