Very nice boat, not a good location.
Robert C:s description below is pretty accurate. We had also booked the boat when it was located in the old marina, and it is difficult to see how the new location could be better. I would stress the fact the boat is located just a few meters from a heavily trafficked and noisy 6 lane road and that the location is not what you generally call a marina. It’s perhaps not as bad as one might think as the outdoor part of the boat is not facing the road, but still I do not think the description of the location is fair as it indicates a pretty tranquil environment. Note also that the pictures of/from the boat is not taken from it’s current location, but from the previous location in the marina. To be honest, I hate that sort this sort of thing, people that carefully plan their vacation and travel from the other side of the world deserves to have an accurate and honest description of what it is they are renting. On that note, contrary to what the description says, this boat it cannot be taken out for charter, at least that was what we were told. On the positive side, it’s a clean, nice and supercosy boat. We were 2 adults and 3 kids for 9 nights. It worked, but I would recommend 4 people or less. We had some technical difficulties, but Rochelle and her husband that takes care of the boat arrived promptly and fixed the problems. I would rent this again only if the location were a marina or some less busy place and/or closer to the AD district. So to sum it up: + nice boat, + Rochelle and her husband that takes care of the boat and the guests are wonderful people, + close to beach, – not a nice location due to the road. Lot’s of minus for that the pics and the description does not accurately reflect the location. If this were not the case my review would have been more positive, because after all we had a nice time.

Despite your demeanor and rude behavior to my staff I am glad you had a good time during your visit to my yacht. Google maps is very easy to use and very clearly shows the location at the Fontainebleau Marina.
The five star properties of the Fontainebleau, Eden Roc and SoHo House and the marinas of the properties are all located on Collins Ave.
Collins Ave on South Beach from 4000 block to 6,000 block is the only street and is referred to as "Millionaire's Row," due to the nicest resorts, condos, yachts and mansions located in the area. The private deck on the yacht overlooking Indian Creek and multi-million dollar mansions is a great sunset view that most guests find to be a superior location.
As you can clearly see on Google maps the yacht is within easy walking distance to the beach and your choice three of Miami Beaches, 5 star resorts, and twenty-plus restaurants. I elect to have full disclosure and a pin on Google maps so guests may determine exactly where the yacht is located.
Your family was very nice to my staff and apologetic about your temper and attitude...hope you can return to south Beach in the future but not at on one of my Yachts.
