Soft economy benefits charterboat customers

Southwest Florida Yachts has announced a yacht charter "stimulus" promotion giving every sail and power-yacht charter of two days the third day free through October.

"Want to bail out for three days? This is the perfect three-day vacation," said Barb Hansen of Southwest Florida Yachts. "You can make this a middle-of-the-week excursion. Or take Friday off and make it the perfect long weekend to explore our beautiful barrier island paradise."

Southwest Florida Yachts charters power yachts from 28 to 43 feet and sailing yachts from 29 to 42 feet long for cruising and sailing the near-shore Gulf of Mexico and the inland waters between the Florida barrier islands of Sanibel/Captiva and the village of Punta Gorda on Charlotte Harbor.
