Boat charter to Bahamas from Florida
Chartering a yacht from Florida to the Bahamas is a great idea, but make sure you follow our insider tips and tricks because we’ve been doing this for a very long time.
Heading out on the water without this knowledge can really set you back, both from a time and financial standpoint. If you want to make every hour of your vacation to the Bahamas count, and have the time of your life, you’ll want to keep our considerations in mind.
Sales Tax – Sales tax in the Bahamas is 4% versus 7% in South Florida [Palm Beach County (West Palm Beach), Broward County (Fort Lauderdale) and Dade County (Miami)].
Price of Fuel – Fuel prices are around half the price in Florida than in the Bahamas.
Amount of Fuel – The amount of fuel the yacht will consume to get to the Bahamas & back to Florida could supersede the repositioning fee it will cost you to relocate the yacht.
Time – Miami to Nassau is 160nm, which means it would take one full day to arrive in Nassau, costing you a significant amount of money in fuel and wasted time cruising to your destination. The amount of time (money) it will take cruising to the Bahamas and back to Florida will most likely supersede the repositioning fee charged by the yacht owner and can take two days out of your Bahamas yacht charter.
