Is it possible to rent a yacht in Florida with or without a skipper?
To sail your luxury yacht charter without a skipper,
you will need a Yachtmaster Ocean license or the equivalent valid boating license, depending on the country. However, if you want to sail in luxury and comfort you can charter the yacht with a captain and crew.
On the Nautal platform, most yachts available in Florida are rented with a mandatory skipper
included in the price. This is because the yachts are very expensive and the risk of damage for the owner is very high. Also during the high season, the yacht owners often cannot get them repaired easily without an advanced booking. Your luxury yacht holidays in Florida are waiting!

What is the weather and sailing conditions like in Florida?
Florida is blessed with up to 300 sailable days a year. For those wanting to plan a winter escape between the months of November and April, the weather is dry and temperatures are blissfully warm. The winds are usually southerly, although during this season they tend to be more variable.
Throughout the summer season, the winds are usually light to moderate in an eastern direction at the beginning of the day. As the day progresses, quite often it can change to the western wind. Temperatures are likely to rise up to over 30 °C (87 °F) so don’t forget to pack your sunscreen!
Whilst Florida is considered a year-round sailing destination, it can be prone to hurricanes in the late summer and autumn months due to its geographical location. Remember to always check the weather forecast before venturing out on your Florida yacht charter, regardless of the time of year and to pack all necessary precautionary equipment on board.
