Bursting with culture, fashion, and history, Miami not only attracts, but also inspires the rich and famous. With endless adventures on land and water, it is the perfect playground for the elite. Miami provides it all, from the very best in designer boutiques and high-end shopping to world-class cuisine, and first class hotels and spas.

Miami may be best known for its vibrant cultural diversity, glamorous nightlife and fabulous beaches, but that only begins to explore the delights offered by the city.  There is another fascinating world that exists just beyond its shores—a world only discovered by private yacht.

Once limited to the super wealthy, yacht charter and yacht ownership have but been a distant dream for many, and for most, only a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Now, however, a new opportunity for experiencing the world of luxury yachting arises, via the Fleet Miami Membership Club.

Avid yachtsman and experienced superyacht owner Michael Saylor had a vision for sharing the yachting experience with others. After years of chartering and owning yachts himself, Michael founded Fleet Miami, a concept whereby a fleet of yachts in a variety of length and styles would be available to club members at sought-after locations around the around the world all year long. For Michael - a true "out-of-the-box" thinker who holds dual degrees in Aeronautics and Astronautics (spaceship design) and Science, Technology and Society from MIT - being released from the confines of a shoreside hotel and given the freedom to explore that is afforded by a private yacht was an experience that he wanted Fleet Miami to emulate.

Imagine: After a busy day browsing the boutiques or indulging in the colorful Miami art scene, you are whisked away to the marina where you board your private yacht to be greeted by a smiling stewardess serving your favorite cocktail. As the sun sets and the Miami skyline lights up along the shore, you arrive as a VIP at the hottest waterfront restaurant in town. This is but a taste of the Fleet Miami experience.

Unlike other companies, Fleet Miami offers its experience in cities other than Miami. Cruise amidst a backdrop of monuments along the Potomac in Washington, DC this weekend or arrive in style at the annual Hamptons bash next summer.

Fleet Miami offers nine (9) private yachts ranging in size and style from 36 – 154 feet in coastal cities along the Eastern Seaboard of the United States, the Med, Caribbean and Bahamas.

Fleet Miami also continues its commitment to luxury and service on the land. Fleet Miami offers an exceptional concierge service that goes above and beyond for members. Access to the hottest clubs and the best restaurants, sold-out concerts, private villas, behind-the-scenes access to fashion week, even shopping after hours - these are but a few of the services the Fleet Miami concierge can arrange.

This is not just any VIP experience - Fleet Miami treats its members like Fleet Owners.   A Fleet Miami membership provides members the opportunity to utilize a fleet of yachts without the cost of ownership and with more flexibility than offered with traditional charters.  Members can cancel as needed, use rain dates, and change plans without the hassle of complicated contracts.  Fleet Miami is focused on getting their members back to the joy of yachting.

The Fleet Miami Experience

Overnight trips near Miami

Back to Nature

Known as the site of the impressive Fort Jefferson National Monument, this 100-square-mile park is comprised of seven small islands that are only accessible by boat or seaplane. After a visit to the Monument, spend the day fishing, kayaking the mangroves, exploring the barrier reef system, or discovering the varied species of birds that inhabit this magical place.

Private Island LUXURY

On this trip you’ll experience a slice of paradise known as Little Palm Island. Only accessible by boat or seaplane, Little Palm Island is five and a half acres of pristine beaches and solitary tranquility. Dock at the marina and take advantage of all this tropical oasis has to offer, from spa services at the resort to pure relaxation on the secluded beaches.

Crystal Clear Water, White Sand Beaches and Fishing

Bimini Bahamas is home to world-class fishing, both the deep sea and shallow variety. Pursue bonefish in the flats or head over to the west side to catch wahoo, marlin, or sailfish. With amazing diving and snorkeling, there are plenty of ways to spend a daytrip. Or if you would rather relax, enjoy the miles of pristine beaches. Ernest Hemingway spent time in Bimini fishing and writing for a good reason. Delight in the simple joy of visiting this warm-weather island just 50 miles east of Miami.  

Sample Miami Day trips


Key Biscayne is a great place to tie up alongside other yachts and spend the day relaxing and chatting with new friends.  Further on, Crandon Park Beach or Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park offer quieter spots to swim and snorkel, the latter carrying the distinction of having been named one of the top 15 beaches in the United States. Boca Chita Key in Biscayne National Park boasts a coral reef perfect for all kinds of underwater exploration, including diving and snorkeling.


Don’t forget the Miami culture. The Miami marina at Bayside allows easy access to both the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts and the American Airlines Arena, home to the Miami Heat.  Marlins Park is a short drive away, and well worth the visit during baseball season. A variety of restaurants and shops make up the Bayside Marina, which is also a great jumping point to visit some of Miami’s great family attraction such as the Children’s Museum, Seaquarium, Zoo Miami, and Jungle Island. Art-related exhibitions and events occur year-round in Miami, but in December, incorporating the world-famous Art Basel exhibition into plans is a must.
