All our yachts come fully equipped to make your private boat charter experience what you’re looking for. We offer motor and sailing yachts that provide the best boat rental experience.
We are the leading company in the industry offering Bareboat Charters which gives, you the customer, the ability to take a yacht out without a captain. Our company requires past experience on a similar vessel as you intend to Bareboat. We advise our bareboat charter customers not to drink alcohol during their charter for safety reasons. If you have the skills to navigate a boat by yourself, but would rather sit back and relax, you can still hire a captain on a Bareboat Charter.
Whether you hire a captain, or set out without one, on a Bareboat Charter of a lifetime, Blue Ocean Yacht Charters is here to help. Your next vacation memory will be with us!

What Our Customers Say About Their Yacht Rentals
“This was a family experience that we will NEVER forget! Truly enjoyed our 5-day vacation in the Keys, staying aboard the BellaMaggio in the amazing Stock Island Marina. If you’re looking for a family getaway that is DIFFERENT and allows the family to connect away from phones/computers / ipads — THIS is the way to do it! Our family of 6 with kids ranging from 18mos to 14 years loved living on the boat and taking her out on 2 full- day sail excursions with the incomparable Capt(Skippy) Vanessa and Judi. Booking was easy and Tim was responsive from day one. Check-in/ out was very smooth, and his colleague Ray was excellent in giving us the full tour of everything we needed to know. Whenever we needed anything he was just a text message away. The bottle of wine when we arrived was a nice touch and appreciated after our 3+ hour drive from Miami! Living quarters were comfortable (beds, with organic linens were surprisingly very comfortable!!) – andthe A/C aboard the boat (when docked) worked incredibly well despite the high heat and humidity outside! It was what our kids called “Glamping” (glamorous camping) Fully stocked kitchen, plenty of storage (closets/drawers) etc all throughout the boat made it very easy to make ourselves at home and not feel like we were living out of suitcases. We took advantage of the grill on board and sat outside on the back deck once the sun went down. The Stock Island Marina is pristine – incredibly clean and well kept. We took advantage of the bath house daily for showers (in a very clean shower room) / and did some small loads of laundry in an air-conditioned and spotless laundry room! We appreciated the complimentary marina parking pass and usually found a spot right next to our slip. We loved taking a dip in the Perry Hotel pool, and grabbing cocktails and bar bites at the Salty Oyster. Happy Hour is HALF OFF (everything) at the bar – so definitely a make a point to go at least once. Their shrimp cocktail is huge and fresh! Our kids loved the burgers and the Mahi! The onsite restaurant “Matt’s Kitchen and Bar” is A MUST DO. The food and service is amazing! Super friendly staff that accommodated our group of kiddos, and we thoroughly enjoyed every bite from their menu! Such a great perk to have this restaurant onsite when we wanted to stretch our legs off the boat! While staying aboard was comfortable – and the amenities of the marina were exactly what we needed to accentuate our stay — the best part was being able to take our little home on the water, out to sea for 8+ hours! This was great as we had all of our living amenities out with us for the day (allowing our 18month old to continue his midday nap schedule in his room while we were snorkeling!) Highly recommend Skipper Vanessa and Judi. These gals are absolutely the best and rolled with our crazy crew from the minute they met us! Took us to some of the best snorkeling spots, were eager to help out the fishing enthusiasts on our boat, always made it back in time for a killer Key West sunset, enjoyed being around both the adults AND the kids, and made out day sails incredibly fun, informative, SAFE and enjoyable. They even took pictures and videos of all of us on their own phones and shared right away. This was awesome – especially for us parents who always seem to be taking the pictures and never having the opportunity to be in them ourselves! You MUST do at least ONE full day sail with these two. We were incredibly sad to say goodbye. Location is super close to downtown Key West, local shopping, and other sites. We only ventured out once – and couldn’t wait to get back on the boat. Hands down, a vacation our family will NEVER forget, and we highly recommend it to anyone looking for an EXPERIENCE!”
“Words could never do the experience of staying on BellaMaggio! VERY roomy, my family of 5 had more than enough room! Very clean! They also made the beds with new organic sheets that were so very soft and clean! Everything was eco friendly. A bottle of Organic whit wine awaited our arrival. Tim and Ray were very communicative before, during and after with check out. YOU MUST take the boat out at least once! I suggest an evening ride, it was pure magic! We had a huge pod of dolphins that swam in front of our boat for 29 minutes putting on a show! Our Captain was so knowledgeable about marine life and actually lives on his own boat at sea! This was not just a vacation but an EXPERIENCE! I HIGHLY recommend Blue Ocean Yacht Charters in Key West and I hope you tell them I am huge fan!! Don’t think about chartering… just do it!!!!”
“We stayed two nights on BellaMaggio for the Thanksgiving holiday. The location is very convenient, with grocery stores couple minutes away. We did a full day sail. Our captain was very knowledgeable and helpful. She brought us some snorkel gears on the day of sailing and instructed us how to use them.”
“Awesome boat, great experience! We stayed 3 nights, only wished we had more time! Location was very convenient to grocery, nightlife, island tourism…yet removed just enough to relax quietly and enjoy private time on the boat. We did a full day sail. We would rent again, only wished we could sail down to the Caribbean…forever!”
