The USA’s magnificent West Coast, AKA the Pacific Coast, includes the coastal states of California, Oregon, Washington, and Alaska. While the seas around Alaska might be a bit chilly for many of our customers, the journey between Washington and Mexico is a classic, filled with countless delights along the way including Fort Lauderdale, Miami and, of course, exotic Mexico itself. We have boat share syndicate opportunities available up and down the USA’s West coast, the perfect way to enjoy the rare magic of the American Pacific. Here’s what you need to know.
Buy a boat syndicate, discover Fort Lauderdale and Miami
Fort Lauderdale lies on Florida’s glorious south-east coast, famous for fantastic beaches and boating canals. The Strip promenade runs along the ocean-side highway, the A1A, a road lined with glittering alfresco restaurants, smart bars, brilliant boutiques and awe-inspiring luxury hotels. The International Swimming Hall of Fame is a great place to visit, as is the Hugh Taylor Birch State Park with its gorgeous trails and lagoon.
The city itself offers year-round temperatures at a balmy 24°C or so, and enjoys a whopping 3000 hours of sunshine every year. In total, the greater Fort Lauderdale district offers 561 hotels and motels, 4000 restaurants, 63 golf courses, 12 shopping malls and 100 marinas, which are home to 45,000 resident yachts in total. As you can imagine, you’ll fit right in – this is one of the world’s most popular yachting capitals.
Then there’s magical Miami, stylish and uber-cool, a vibrant cultural, economic and financial centre lying between the magnificent Everglades to the west and Biscayne Bay to the east. This is the Cruise Capital of the World, the planet’s number one cruise passenger port and home to some of the biggest, most expensive superyachts in existence, what we call proper eye-candy!
Metropolitan Miami is a major tourist hub and ranks number two in the USA after New York City herself. You’ll adore the beaches, including the infamous South Beach, and the beautiful Art Deco District in South Beach is one of the world’s most glamorous, offering night clubs, eateries, bars, shopping and a constant stream of festivals. The wonderful semi-tropical climate is a treat, blessing all seven miles worth of white sandy beaches and offering great diving opportunities. Last but far from least the city enjoys more than three thousand hours of sunshine every year.
What do we have in store for you in the region? The Feadship De Vries 185 mega-yacht, that’s what, an awe-inspiring fractional yacht with a 56.50m steel hull and an aluminium superstructure. Her beam runs to 10.10m and she comes with an ultra-modern stabilization system to deliver a wonderfully smooth cruising experience. She reaches a cruising speed of 13.00 knots, a maximum speed of 16.00 knots, and has a range of 4900.00 Nautical Miles. With luxury accommodation for up to 12 guests, she can also handle as many as 15 crew members.
Sail the coast of magical Mexico
The Sea of Cortez is unique. It gets more sunshine than any other sea, 320 days or more every year. It’s incredibly deep too, at more than two miles deep in many places, and it has three important currents running through it. All this means it is unusually rich in plankton, which in turn means there’s an incredible variety of marine life.
This is home to the delightful Espíritu Santo, a large island surrounded by lots of little islands, namely Isla Partida, Los Islotes, La Ballena, El Gallo y La Gallina. Less than 15 miles east of La Paz and near La Paz Bay, it’s a popular tourist haven. The Sea of Cortez offers all sorts of cool island excursions. You can swim with gentle whale sharks, and enjoy fishing and scuba dives. There’s excellent snorkelling, exciting kayaking, massive whales to watch and very good international shopping, plus top class golf courses.
We offer Mexican fractional shares in a magnificent Benetti Tradition 100 yacht, a dazzlingly lovely semi-displacement composite yacht known for its classic elegance, huge windows, light interior and extraordinary views. Designed by Stefano Righini with an interior by Francois Zuretti, it comes with large exterior spaces without compromising on style or performance. She offers 5 smart en-suite cabins, perfect for syndicate ownership.
Washington… but not DC!
This is not Washington DC. It’s Washington state, and it’s known far and wide as the Evergreen State. This is home to Anacortes, the official Gateway to the San Juan Islands, a place that has attracted adventurous mariners for millennia. Native Americans once widely travelled these straits in canoes to trade, raid and gather seafood around the San Juan Islands, literally hundreds of islands, everything from tiny rocky outcrops to big, mountainous places just begging to be explored. Seafood-wise, you can’t go wrong. The rich waters are crammed with salmon, crab, rockfish, scallops, mussels and clams, and there’s just as much wildlife on the land, everything from squirrels, deer and migrating birds to seals, sea lions and whales.
One established syndicator in Anacortes has a resale share available right now, a sleek C90 power catamaran that’s the perfect weekender vessel for the area. Well specified with all sorts of extra equipment and all the initial outfitting completed, she’s available right now.
