How to Charter a Private Yacht

Are you ready for a vacation made up of your most fantastic dreams and fantasies? It can be as easy as starting a dialogue with a MarineMax charter agent. A yacht charter typically is a week-long, seven full days. Charters can usually be scheduled for a long or shorter duration but depends on the specific yacht as well as the time of year. A yacht charter is not available for single-day outings. As the most exclusive and personalized travel experience you can envision, you'll make the memories of a lifetime for you, your family and your guests.
