An Island Packet 46-foot cutter rigged sloop with an abundance of custom features will help make your afternoon, evening or week aboard, most comfortable. Her spacious cockpit is eight feet long, protected by a Bimini top, dodger and removable connector between the two.

The electric windless on deck makes for "no sweat" anchoring. The new step down, sugar scoop stern with a generously sized water-level platform is both fun and functional. The feeling of bright, open spaciousness is conveyed immediately upon entering the cabin. Fresh air and natural light are generously provided with 17 opening ports and 8 hatches – all with screens. Fans are thoughtfully placed over each bunk and in the galley for additional comfort. The forward stateroom spans the entire beam of the yacht and features an unusually large head/shower area; the aft stateroom is equally inviting with cedar lined closets and direct access to the aft head and shower. The main salon features full-length settees with the starboard one converting to a double berth. The salon upholstery is all premium ultra leather for a soft luxurious feel. Both heads feature vacu-flush (no pumping) with separate shower stalls. Luxury features abound including air conditioning, inverter, flat screen TV/DVD, Sirius Satellite Radio, iPod, generator, microwave, autopilot, hot/cold shower on the stern and anchor windless.

Being native to Miami we know where to purchase those premium items that you want on your charter. Over 95% of our guests entrust Captain Sir! to provision and prepare their meals onboard. The sea air enhances the appetite and dining alfresco under the stars is a delightful and long remembered experience. ***Contact us to get more information about Sample Menu Items What to wear for a four-hour sail: Captain Sir! is very casual and most guests step aboard in shorts and soft-soled shoes. Going barefoot is encouraged. Bring your bathing suit and clothing that will provide ample sun protection. In “winter” (November-March) a light jacket or sweater is recommended. Overall, the weather is the best indicator for what to wear – most importantly – dress comfortably! What to wear/pack for an extended trip: The key is not to over pack. All your linens and towels are provided. If planning for the Bahamas, bring a pair of shoes for beach walking, like Tevas – parts of the Bahamas have rocky shorelines. Nothing in the Bahamas or The Florida Keys requires jackets, ties, formal wear or heels. Going ashore is a casual, easy, enjoyable experience everywhere! Aboard Captain Sir! there is no captain’s night where dress up is required. Whatever you feel comfortable in, that’s proper attire! Entertainment: While Captain Sir! does not promise napkin folding or table tennis on deck, make sure you ask the captain to entertain you with his exceptional magic and card tricks. He is also a first-class sailing instructor with a lot of patience with adults as well as children. Books and magazines are aboard, however, if you are a reader, bring something that you have been wanting to read – it’s a great opportunity to kick back, listen to the lapping of the waves and get lost in a good book. If you have a favorite CD, DVDs or an iPod bring it along. Or, connect to your music using our Bluetooth. Captain Sir! also has an extensive collection of everything from Jimmy Buffet to SOCA to classical to popular to jazz to easy listening, as well as Sirius XM Satellite radio with nearly 200 stations including news, sports and talk. Also feel free to bring your snorkel gear, fishing pole (a fishing license is required) or ask about other items if you are unsure about bringing them. What about the sun and sunscreen? The sun in the tropics is certainly stronger than most other places in the United States. Be cautious with the sun and bring sunscreen lotion, NOT OIL! Oil is difficult to remove from the decks and cushions and creates a slippery surface. Highly recommended is a long sleeve shirt to snorkel in to protect your back and arms. Better yet, is a nylon dive shirt. These not only keep you warm if the water is cool, but also provide great sun protection. Dive shops sell them to be worn under a wet suit for rash protection. Also, highly recommended is a hat to provide facial shade – a visor works pretty well. Just make sure if you bring a hat it’s not one with a wide brim that will blow off easily in windy conditions – one with a chin strap is ideal. If you have any questions, we can answer those through GetMyBoat’s messaging platform before you pay. Just hit, “Request to Book” and send us an inquiry for a custom offer.
