Nauti Pleasure Charters offers private yacht charter excursions and recreational bare-boat charter/rental aboard our luxury yacht for groups of 6 or less (6 Pack) and/or 7 to 13 passengers (12 Pack). The motoryacht Nauti Pleasure is located in the greater Destin, Fort Walton Beach and Okaloosa Island area. Our regular tour area cruises Destin Harbor, Destin East Pass, Crab Island, the surrounding bayou's of Choctawhatchee Bay and the Gulf Shore beaches of the Emerald Coast (weather permitting). Our service provides for relaxing scenic excursions, cocktail cruises, dolphin watching, swimming and snorkeling in combination with your special event.
The M/Y Nauti Pleasure is a luxury 50-foot Bluewater Yachts M/Y (motor yacht) for your private nautical pleasure. Our goal is to provide guests that may or may not have the resources of ownership an opportunity to experience yachting. Those guests that can afford their own yacht might find it impractical to own given their busy lifestyle and other priorities. Our yacht comes Captained, clean, comfortable and ready for service for your reserved date and time.
The cost of owning your own yacht is considerable; 15% down payment, 10 years of monthly payments, dock slip and storage, yacht insurance and routine maintenance can total thousands of dollars a month not to mention the depreciation. Economically speaking only the experienced yacht owner knows that renting is far cheaper than the comparable cost of owning when broken down to a "per use" cost basis.
