Let Anchor make your time in the “Yachting Capital of the World” unforgettable with customizable yacht rental in Fort Lauderdale.

Why Rent a Yacht in Fort Lauderdale?

Fort Lauderdale isn’t designated as the “Yachting Capital of the World” by accident. The city has over 300 miles of inland waterways and is home to over 50,000 boats and yachts. That’s why tons of people come here for yachting year-round.

The many on-the-water experiences available in Fort Lauderdale also add to its appeal. Here, you can attend the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, the largest in-water boat show. You can also experience unparalleled fishing and diving right off the coast. Altogether, this makes Fort Lauderdale an incredible and unforgettable destination for yachting. 

Make Your Yacht Rental in Fort Lauderdale Easy with Anchor

While a yacht rental can make your Fort Lauderdale experience amazing, most companies seem to want the rental process to be as difficult as possible. Anchor changes this trend. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to find a yacht rental in Fort Lauderdale. To do so, we’ve created a straightforward rental process. 

Find a Location Near You

Given the popularity of yachting in Fort Lauderdale, it is only natural that there are multiple different locations where your yacht rental can begin. When you search for Fort Lauderdale on our website, you’ll be greeted by a map listing these places. You can choose the option on the map that works best for you. 

Select Your Departure Date

You’ll also have to select a departure date. This is the day you will actually rent your yacht and head out onto the water. 

Choose Your Ideal Yacht

With these two selections made, you will now see a list of yachts available. These yachts will often be different sizes, have different amenities, will be able to accommodate different numbers of people, and overall provide an experience unique to that yacht. Make sure you look through the options to find the choice you believe to be best. 

Request and Confirm Availability

When you have the yacht you want selected, you can simply request it via our website. When you do this, we will check to make sure it is available and that everything is alright with the options you’ve selected. 

Reserve Your Yacht Rental

If this works out, you can make the actual reservation. To do so, you will have to put down a small deposit. This will be returned to you after your rental. 

Select Your Crew and Captain

Now, you can select the captain and crew that will be accompanying you on your trip. You have to select a captain, as they will be responsible for driving the yacht you are renting. However, any additional crew is an optional choice that allows you to make your experience more enjoyable. 

Get Ready to Head Out in Fort Lauderdale

With all of these decisions made, you’re done. Now, all you have to do is show up for the ride you booked. 

Why Rent Your Fort Lauderdale Yacht Through Anchor?

With such a presence of yachts in Fort Lauderdale, you may wonder why you should choose Anchor over another option. In truth, there are plenty of reasons to do so. 


You can plan your entire yachting trip in Fort Lauderdale with Anchor without ever having to visit Fort Lauderdale. This makes it easy to plan a Fort Lauderdale vacation and puts less stress on you while you’re supposed to be enjoying your vacation. Even if you’re from Fort Lauderdale, the simplicity of booking with Anchor sets us apart. 

Make It Your Own

Many yachting companies will have a very specific experience in mind. They might give you a few options to pick from but will generally limit your experience to something pretty generic. However, with Anchor, you can truly make your yacht rental your own. You choose the boat, the options, the experience, and the crew. 

Upfront Pricing

One of our goals at Anchor is always to be upfront when it comes to pricing. When you browse the yachts available in Fort Lauderdale, you will see the price of that yacht rental listed right alongside it. As you move through the rental process, any other price changes or additions will be clearly detailed. So, in the end, you know what you are paying and won’t find any surprises in the final bill. 

Professional Crew

The captains and crew at Anchor are another feature that sets us apart. Our captains and crew members are incredibly professional and stand above the competition. However, just the opportunity to book professionally-trained individuals like this makes us different from other yacht rental companies.

Can We Bring More People Than We Planned?

If you suddenly discover that you need to take more people than you initially planned, we can usually accommodate this. After all, our communication system is designed to help respond to your wants and needs

The only exception is if you want to bring on more people than the ship lists as the maximum. This is a hard limit and cannot be exceeded. So, if your limit is 13 people and you initially plan for 10, you can potentially take as many as three more people with you. We cover all these details in our FAQ

What Safety Practices Are In Place?

The team at Anchor places safety as one of our highest priorities. In fact, we instruct our captains to keep safety at the top of their concerns while out on the water. This means they may be limited in what they can do for you based on the safety of the situation. Essentially, they will do what they can to keep you safe. 

Besides this, we ensure each ride is safe. This includes watching out for things like occupancy limits and the weather. We also follow all relevant boating laws. 

What If the Weather Is Bad?

In many cases, bad weather in Fort Lauderdale blows over pretty quickly. You can simply wait for the weather to pass and still get the most out of your boat rental. 

If the weather doesn’t pass and we determine that you cannot take out the yacht for the day, your rental will be canceled. If this happens, we’ll issue you a voucher for the value of the experience you booked. You can use this voucher to book a similar experience within 365 days of the experience you initially planned.
