When Miami-born Captain Anthony DeNito sold his home, it was to pursue a mid-life dream. With the kids out of the house, he and his wife wanted to buy a yacht, leave the land behind and freely travel the seas. He did just that, and so much more.
“We traveled where we wanted for months and enjoyed life on the sea so much that we wanted to share our yachting experience with others,” explained Marine Veteran DeNito.
“Besides that, it is a great way to defer the costs of keeping our 60-foot Hattaras, named Masterplan.”
With DeNito’s unique and humor-filled marketing techniques, people saw how much fun and adventure he was having and it wasn’t long before bookings took off.
“We’ve been successful since day one. Our patrons know that we’ll create the dream cruise they want and are excited to share their good times online,” said DeNito. “One of our rules on-board is: What happens on Miami Cruise Yacht Charters… must get posted all over social media!”
As word spread on the Miami River (and beyond) about the success of Miami Cruise Yacht Charters, other yacht owners wanted in on Captain DeNito’s skill in mixing fun and successful business. They happily handed DeNito the job of managing their underutilized yachts for chartering. All this has led to larger capacity and a happier Captain DeNito.
“What could be better than taking people out for their dream day and exceeding their expectations? We love what we do and want to do more. Most of our business comes from vacationers who see our stories posted on Instagram and Facebook. We post what we are doing every day.” Explains DeNito. “Whether it be a trip to Miami Marine Stadium or out to a sandbar (like Nixon or Haulover) or truly out to sea, we make sure we provide the fun that particular client is looking for. That fun is infectious.”
Masterplan, the oldest yacht that they run, has huge bow, flybridge and stern areas for fun and frolic. I have been on-board several times and our trips to Miami Marine Stadium allowed for spectacular city views, beach time and swimming in the ocean directly off the bow of the boat. The drinks and laughs flowed freely. Fun is an understatement.
Captain DeNito expects that over the next six months he’ll expand to a fleet of 20 yachts that will provide a wide variety of cruising experiences. Not satisfied with what most of us would say was a dream job and company, DeNito is now aiming his sights higher.
“We can also provide a private jet, limousine, masseuse, catering, jet skis and more because we want to be a complete entertainment resource that can offer all those services in one amazing package.”
You won’t find a better time on the water! Captain DeNito can’t wait to say, “It’s Your Yacht, It’s Your Day! Dream it and I’ll make it come true.”
