Watch out for numerous internet cheap spam offers as you may be surprised by their reliability, quality ( both crew and boat) and safety. There is a proven saying "you get what you paid for

Private charters are not equivalent price-wise to public tours as private yachts are elegant quality vessels - not tour boats

Entrust a family operation whose reputation has been proven since 2000

Your choice supports a local business and captains for whom sailing is their livelihood

We do SAIL - we open sails and offer you true SAILING

>> whoever you book - make sure they open sails ( you may be surprised with a ride under motor only)

Sail Boat Rental Charter Miami Florida copy

Our yachts are well cared private vessels that are offered for day charters to private groups only. We make sure each yacht is thoroughly prepared for you - ALWAYS CLEAN - and professional crew welcomes you with a smile.

Our boats SMELL NICE  - because  we make sure air is always well ventilated plus a few more tricks - you will not experience typical BOAT SMELL and mess.

All yachts are taken care of - kept in conveniently located MARINAS - not at anchor/ mooring. Please see our docking slips - as each yacht has different LOCATION.

We have premium options from SOUTH BEACH - and mainland marinas ( cheaper) e.g. Coconut Grove 25-30 mins away by car from SoBe.

Our vessels are sailing yachts and due to size they also have motor. However we make sure SAILS are OPEN as fast as we can. Our crew is energetic and young enough to provide you with full sailing experience UNDER SAIL - not motor only.

We are professional operation - fully dedicated to offer you customized service and attention to details. Pls see - our REVIEWS - of hundreds of guests that entrusted us to provide them with the BEST EXPERIENCE in MIAMI


Miami Sailing staff is devoted to providing you with an ultimate service aboard our yachts.

We are a family run operation specializing in QUALITY recreational type PRIVATE day sails on Biscayne Bay or Atlantic Oceanromantic sunset cruises or private dinner aboard sailing yachts.  

Miami Sailing operates private sailboat charters in Miami - Florida since 2001

Initially, we started sailing as a side activity from our regular jobs on "Como Tu” - our beloved mothership Lancer 40 - and slowly developed it to full time career - as only this way we could be fully dedicated to providing our guests with reliability of service, individual approach, dedication to details and ultimate service.

Since one boat in fleet is neither reliable nor covers expenses of costly repairs/maintenance nor crew living expenses - we decided to take risks and expand to second vessel - "Wind Runner” joined us in 2013 - and started working with other luxury vessels owned by responsible owners that take care of their vessels.

All our vessels are beautiful, always clean and very well kept - each of them offers different features due to vessel size and design.   Please let us know what you are looking for and we will deliver.

ocean sailing Miami Beach


All our captains are professionals - licensed by USA Coast Guard,  selectively chosen from the best - for their experience, professionalism, high personal etiquette and  full understanding of  quality service.   They are middle aged individuals (for your safety not too old) - for whom sailing is a career and love of their life -  and beside extensive sailing experience - they are strong and physically capable of single handling vessels under sail (not motor only). Safety is a major concern of ours - and each charter group is thoroughly informed before accepting any booking. 

We are the only company in Miami that offers reliable and professional services - by most professional, young and experienced captains and full attention to details .



Our premium location in Miami Beach Marina (SOUTH BEACH) is without doubts - the best location in Miami, offering easy access to the ocean or calm Biscayne Bay (we are pretty much the only ones that can offer ocean sailing on half day sails).

Departing from South Beach offers unique views of whole Downtown Miami while sailing into Biscayne Bay or the OCEAN. We do not offer just bay sailing - it is much more than that - and for Miami Beach visitors - we are steps away from your hotel. No need to spend $xx on taxi and relocation time. 

Unique views of private Fisher Island, one time opportunity of seeing Miami Harbor (big cargo ships and cranes) or Biggest Cruiseship Port (possible on the way back), sailing by secluded Virginia Key with spectacular views of whole Downtown Miami - into Biscayne Bay - will stay in your memories for ever.

We offer a unique sailing from/to Miami Beach or Downtown Miami with remarkable views of the city by night.

Other sailboats are located in different parts of Miami e.g. Coconut Grove - see locations 

Sailors know that even a  full day is not enough to experience true sailing- but most of our visitors due to time - choose a half day - which we recommend for non sailors. 

Pls don’t expect quality sailing experience if an older couple suggests you a 2 h ride - as on a sailboat it means leaving marina under motor - motoring the channel - one round under motor -  and return to slip. It may be the cheapest - but for sure NOT THE BEST VALUE you deserve.

It is like seeing Paris from the airport terminal during flight transfer :-)


We specialize in SPECIAL OCCASIONS aboard our yachts - we have hosted many memorable engagements, weddings / anniversaries, birthdays, and business meetings. 

We are also happy to organize corporate events, including CORPORATE business receptions (max 12 guests) and team building regattas (6 participants/per boat).

We can spoil you on the most luxury sailing yachts in Miami (up to 57 ft) e.g. BENETEAU 57, luxury BENETEAU Oceanis 461 (47ft Wind Runner - see above)  comfortable mother vessel - LANCER 42' (Como Tu - see below).  

Please let us know what you are looking for and we will deliver.

We specialize in QUALITY SERVICES with EUROPEAN HOSPITALITY.  Our charters can be fully crewed (professional and courteous captain and mate / cheff/ mate etc ). 

We can also provide you with premium catering or premium dining under sail for a very special occasion.

We cater to private groups up to 6 and up to 12 (per boat) on larger vessels.

While researching sailing operators - keep always in mind - that in order to make BEST decision - the price tag shall not be your main indicator - as the saying says - “you get what you paid for” in the end . 

Make sure you are not fooled with PERFECT catalogue pictures and shiny marketing materials - as they may be further from reality than you could imagine.  Ask for real images ;-)

All pictures on our website are real - without editing tricks.

Don’t be fooled that advertising the NEWEST boat (was it the newest when the website was made, when ? ) is  therefore BEST - as the age of the sailing vessel and your charter  experience, has nothing to do with you final satisfaction. 

You can have the best time of your life on a classic boat from 1940s - as long as the vessel is taken care of and CLEAN - by devoted and passionate owner. 

Some classic yachts  are like WINE especially if cared by a devoted owner  - and offer luxury experience on a comfortable  ELEGANT classy vessel. Quality of most stadarized new “modern” vessels is far below the vessels that were made before 90s (in most cases - excluding of course world famous million dollar + yachts e.g. Oester etc). Why ? Cost effectiveness ….to cater to  middle class. And most owners know it - therefore they keep good boats - see % of value depreciation of new “modern” vessels to well known classics from 90s :-) - there is a reason why they keep the value and don’t loose 50% in first 5 yrs :)

Before,  the yachts of 40 feet plus were built with quality for the people who could afford it - and expecting highest quality - without cutting corners. Today casual market tempts with lower prices - compromising quality tremendously.

However in any service, and especially charter  - the most important factor is a HUMAN factor - as in the end you will remember WHO you sailed with 

Was the captain/crew professional? courteous? entertaining? or your skipper was a “ driver" that wanted to have it done asap …and you had nothing to talk about …. Is he “young” and strong enough to fully perform and open sails ( yes - it is very much physically demanding job and need full attention) … . Did he open sails or was under motor only for his convenience ?

Miami has it all - just make your research and be careful with “product - placement’ articles, literally advertising one particular boat / location for the convenience of the author = that boat owner :-)

 Our priority is to put smile on your face and have a good time. We want to exceed your expectations and never under deliver. Quite opposite indeed -we’d rather surprise you in a positive way rather than promise you things and "under deliver".

We have started our family operation so we can offer services and treat our guests as we would like to be treated as guests:  with respect, professional, reliable, fun. 

Unlike others we don’t promise things we do not deliver. We do not lure with fake extras and later make excuses. All reservations are in writing and you know what you get. There is no fake fotos, no photoshop “beautifications” of our boats nor the crew.

Bring your camera and crew member will take pictures for you or we can use our gear. Please do not be fooled by ads of free professional photography is included - as of what we know - nobody will offer you truly professional services for free ( if they are really good) as such services require 2 assistants to hold reflectors and modifiers (screens) to create/control light, more sophisitcated equipment ( not just DSLR/s NIKON or CANON that almost every body has nowadays) That does not make you a professional …. There is much more to that. We love photography but we don’t call ourselves pros just because we have a DSLR Nikon or Canon (nowadays everybody calls themselves pro :-)

For truly professional services - you may hire photographer and invite him aboard. Research well, as most “prof” in Miami may be a person with DSLR and silly skills behind 

Good Photography is an ART for which you need a good eye and tech skills (science) as well.

Timing - Most sailors know that even a full day is not enough to enjoy true sailing trip - but due to time - half day ( 4 hrs ) is our most popular charter.

We don’t recommend anything shorter than 4 hrs - as honestly 2 h ride ( offered by many older retired captains) means  leaving marina - motor and back in slip. 

Each marina (in Miami) = no exceptions , have access channel that can be 10-20 -30 min long - before you can open sail, based on wind direction of course  - so calculating entry and docking part - you know your answer what 2 hrs on sailboat is a ride from any location.

For some captains - due to their age - it is more convenient - as it is the easiest trip and does not even require opening sails …. just motoring … and for them least effort and most money earned by doing 2-4 a day short riders under motor.

For sure this is not BEST value you were hoping for ...

The decision is yours ! 

Come and see for yourself ! 

  It' s your boat for the day, YOU are in charge !

Come sailing with Miami Sailing and we‘ll make sure you‘ll have a pleasant experience on your visit to Miami. We want to make you feel relaxed so when back in port, you’ll feel like a new born person.
