      44' Ultra Luxury Silverton Hi Performance Motor Yacht Rental in Destin, Fl

      Our experience on Jason’s boat was PERFECT! Exactly what we were looking for with a big group of girls for a bachelorette party. The boat is really nice and felt even bigger than it looked in photos. Jason and his first mate were awesome, so laid back and just genuinely wanted to give us a good experience. 100% recommended and hope we can ride with them again some day!

      Jason and his team did a great job in touring our family around the Destin area. Saw dolphins and had a nice snorkel spot too. The crew was terrific and open to personalize the experience to meet our needs. Will definitely be booking with him again.

      Amazing boat for a fun small party! 🎉 We had a pandemic-wedding, so we only had 13 people, and having a reception on the boat was a great idea! Jason picked up our food before we arrived, had lots of ice for our drinks and had a sound system ready to go to get the party started! The boat was clean and spacious, just like advertised. Highly recommend booking this boat for a special occasion!

      Jason is the BEST! The boat was very clean and refreshing. Inside the boat was cool for when we began to get overheated outside. Jason has great hospitality skills. He also communicated very well via the messaging system, even before the booking took place. Loved the bluetooth connection capability and the speakers were perfect. Great Job Jason. I will be back again. ;) My 25th Birthday was amazing.

      This yacht charter with Jason was AMAZING! We had so much fun for my birthday and Jason was such a good vibe. Yacht has multiple levels, a great sound system and clean. My first time using this site for a charter and everything went as arranged. Great end of Summer experience. Thanks Jason!

      We had an awesome time hanging out on Jason’s yacht. There was plenty room for us and our guys were linebacker huge! It was a huge plus to have the A/C blowing in the quarters when it got too hot outside. Jason was very accommodating and really tried to make sure we were having a good time even when we ran into a problem. I would recommend Jason and his vessel several times over!
