Our favorite way to get around Miami Beach is with the CITI bikes, which can be checked out and taken one way to the hundreds of kiosks located around the beach. Beachview Park has a kiosk you can rent a bike and start your adventure. We suggest downloading UBER.com a FREE App for your transportation needs.

Miami Beach has the ultimate in nightclubs, restaurants, bars, pools, and shopping. All are in walking distance from the yachts. It’s an easy walk to Beachside Parks pristine beach with crystal clear water to enjoy a relaxing day at the beach. Beach amenities include Jet Ski rental, umbrella & lounge chair rental for chilling out.

After a big night out in South Beach come back to your private yacht with two private staterooms that each have Queen sized-beds, private bathrooms with showers, plenty of closet space, luxurious linens, & black-out curtains and flat screen TV's.

The Yacht cannot have more than six people on board and may not be used for an invitational party. Loud music, boisterous behavior, and parties are not acceptable late night on the outside decks of the yacht. You can party in the spacious salon all night long, but please remember you are in a residential area when you are on the outside decks. The condominium association security monitors the slips and has zero tolerance for unruly behavior.

Many of our guests are interested in taking a cruise with one of our Coast Guard approved and insured captains. Guests are not allowed to move a vessel without our captains. A half-day charter of Indian Creek and Biscayne Bay is $850. A full day charter that can include a visit to one of the sandbars that locals gather and party is $1350. Charters can have up to 6 guests, but no more. If you are interested in scheduling a charter please email date & time of desired departure.

We look forward to having you onboard boatel.us and hope you enjoy your stay. If you love the yachting life and would like to own this vessel please let us know.

Issues in previous reviews still exist

  • 2 of 5

We stayed on the Sweetwater Blue "yacht" for 4 days. I'll start with the positives:

-The boat is spacious with 3 bedrooms

-accommodations are clean

-Alex the on-site contact was a nice guy and tried to be helpful

-It's a great experience to sit out on the deck watching other boats go by

Now for the not so positive experiences:

-The boat was not ready when we checked in. We arrived to the smell of sewage with tools all over. Alex arrived soon after and was a little annoyed that we had not called him to let him know we were on our way. The communications we received regarding check-in said to call Alex if we'd like to be greeted at the boat (something we really didn't require). It turns out that Alex was repairing the toilets, which he said was due to 6 guys from England staying previously that really messed up the systems.

-First full day on the boat, we returned to the smell of sewage. Toilets were broken again. Alex was called and came out the next day to make the repairs. We were pretty grossed out to find that the fix was to use a wet vac to suck out the blockage.

-Second day on the boat, toilets were backed up again. I should point out that we were SO careful with the toilets the entire time using a very minimal amount of toilet paper, and even walking across the street to use the restrooms. Alex said the issues were due to us and he wasn't aware of previous ongoing issues (the reviews posted here say a different story).

-The marina location isn't quite what we expected. The boat is pulled up on a busy road with not much to walk too.

-The boat has seen better days, I wish I could post pictures for the review. There is a garbage bag taped to the bathroom window in place of a curtain. Both toilets leak and have paper towels on the floor behind them to soak up water. We were surprised by a small rat in the steering wheel area that came out at night. Furniture is not as pictured in the photos (not a big deal, just there is no sofa, just chairs).

-We were told we could use the toilets and pool area at the condo building across the street. In order to do so, we were advised to go through a door that said "no entry". We also weren't given the gate codes to get in and out to the beach. We were uncomfortable with the situation and discussed with Alex. I don't think we were supposed to be in this private area.

Overall we had a great time in Miami, but would highly recommend staying somewhere else.

Quick family getaway

  • 4 of 5

I was looking for a place to stay in the Miami area to take my 17 year old daughter to look at some colleges in the area. I brought the family and 2 of their friends, so we had 6 people total. Because it was spring break,

everything (hotels and home rentals) were pretty much booked. The girls wanted to be near the beach and the prices to get in anything close was CRAZY. I emailed Mr. Smith and he returned my email within an hour letting me know the Yacht was available for our dates needed. He explained how to book it and we did it in the car on the way to another spot in Florida. My wife wanted to stay on the yacht and it looked like it was going to be in a great location.

The day before the arrival the confirmation came in with instructions to where to park and where it was. We went and visited the U in the morning and was on the beach in the afternoon. We parked in the parking lot across from where the instructions on the email told us to park. I called Alex, (a very nice guy that is in charge of the yachts rented) and he told me he thought we were coming in the next day. He hurried over and let us in the boat. We were in no hurry as we were enjoying the beach and the Fountain Blue resort.

Alex called and told us he was at the boat, but when we walked across the street, he was no where to be found. I called him back and he informed me that the information was old on the email and gave me directions to go about a mile south form where we were at. We found him with no trouble, but I had already spent the $10 to park our van in that parking lot for the night and now it was wasted money.

Alex was very nice and showed me all the in and outs of the yacht. He was very nice to the kids and was a professional throughout our stay. The yacht is older and smells it. It is nice inside, but was having some AC issues. It was not unbearable and the open windows was plenty cool enough this time of the year. Alex told me that an AC guy was coming the next day to fix it and sure enough he did. The boat was so cold the next day that we cut it off and opened the windows again. The top deck of the yacht was very comfortable. We ate meals up there and played cards and had our devotions. VERY PLEASANT. The University of Miami’s Row teams were using the river to practice all 3 days we were there. I enjoyed being up on the deck the most of our stay in Miami. The birds flying over head and the incredible weather was awesome. No bugs at all.

Good Experience

  • 3 of 5

Great location, loved spending time on the deck. Small but comfortable. Needs a new shower curtain, and cover on window in bathroom. Toilets leaked needs repairing. But overall we had a great stay.

Alex was a great guy and very informative.

I want to start by saying that the boat is in a fantastic location.

The overall stay was just ok. When we arrived the guy that looks after the boats was fantastic. His name is Alex and he unloaded our bags took them on the boat for us un loaded our groceries and put them in the fridge. He really was fantastic.

The boat is a little older and it is not in the greatest of conditions. The toilet stopped working every 4 hours and we had to call Alex to come and fix it. That was a real pain. The boat had an old smell as well that we couldnt seem to get rid off.

We where supposed to have direct tv for the duration of the stay and we finally got the tv working the day before we left and we where there for 5 days.

If you are looking for a quick getaway and you want something fun relatively in-expensive, good location and you don't mind small living quarters and some toilet problems then you might enjoy this.

Overall it was a fun experience but I would not rent this pirticular boat again.

The Best! I was relaxed after 15 minutes on the boat. check in was a breeze, instructions given before hand on all details such as safe, keys, wifi and places to go were right on.Great having a full kitchen and Keurig coffee maker....I need my coffee. I was skeptical of marine bathroom but was pleasantly surprised, shower was hot and good water pressure. The 2 things I enjoyed the most was the view and the best sleep I have gotten in months. I would bring with you some basic needs such as drinking water, snacks and wine, because once you get on the boat you don't want to leave . I would recommend Boatel 100%, thank you for making our weekend getaway the best ever.
