      ***FORT LAUDERDALE*** - Gorgeous 45' Sea Ray Sundancer Yacht for Charter

      Ray was very communicative ahead of our trip and gave us a clear understanding of what all to bring and arrival/departure instructions. Once we arrived, Capt Ken and Pablo were such gracious hosts and we really enjoyed the intercostal tour down to Las Olas and anchoring for some fun in the sun. The boat was an awesome setup and the lily pad was clutch for laying out. Customer service was 100! We will certainly plan to use them again when we come back in the future. Thanks!

      We had so much fun cruising around Fort Lauderdale! Matt, our captain, was wonderful. He gave some fun facts about the surrounding mansions as we passed by and then took us to anchor up at the sandbar. We had a great afternoon and would definitely book again.

      Party, Cruise thru ft lauderdale stoping at sandbars and island hopping in Fort Lauderdale, Florida

      Nick worked exactly within our timeline for custom drop off and pick up and gauged the "training" overview directly to my boating experience. We had one brief glitch that he was available to troubleshoot by phone, otherwise the rental was flawless and had peace of mind knowing he was available if we had any issues.
