The family-owned business of Anita Dee Yacht Charters began with a passion for gathering friends and family. After our first experience on a boat cruise, we fell in love with entertaining on a private yacht and bought our first one as soon as we could. Thirty years later, our husband and wife team have grown Anita Dee Yacht Charters into a thriving family business, have become regarded as industry leaders, and have set the standard for luxury private yacht cruises.

You can choose full-service packages for social events that include catering, or you can organize the entertainment and food yourself. Anita Dee Yacht Charters offers flexibility, versatility, and creativity when you are planning your social event. We are happy to work with you on details big and small to ensure your event is a stunning success. Let us help to create a magical and unforgettable experience for you and your loved ones.

What Our Clients Are Saying


Process was very smooth. From getting the contract signed to the time we docked when things wrapped up. Sales process was a zero pressure experience. I was presented the pricing and dates that were available. The rest was in my court. In comparing the prices with other companies, I realized Anita Dee was the best choice. Post-sale, I would get a quick response to my emails. All my questions were answered going into the day of the event. Day of the event, my guests experienced first class service from a wonderful crew of five. My guests and I got everything and then some from the team at Anita Dee. I would definitely recommend them for your outing. I have no doubt I'll continue to do business with them.
