WHAT MAKES OUR SERVICE UNIQIUE has much to do with the design of our vessel. The Nauti Pleasure has ample elevated deck seating for a superior view, shallow draft for Crab Island, safe and easy walk around deck access and so much more.
Unlike most other yachts the Nauti Pleasure is a "shoal draft" coastal motor yacht. What does that mean? Having a shallow draft means that our vessel can get you where other yachts of this size cannot. We can disembark your guests into standing deep water at Crab Island, Destin's most famous boating attraction. Currents at Crab Island can be strong and you don't need to have to swim to Crab Island .
Secondly, TAKE A GOOD LOOK at the seating arrangements of the other yachts. Our yacht features an elevated aft deck with spacious wrap around seating and sun lounge. Your entire group will enjoy elevated panoramic views versus being confined to a crampt lower aft cockpit with a main cabin obstructing your view.
NOTICE the wide wrap around deck walk-ways for safe and easy access to the foredeck and upper deck. Getting around on our boat is easy giving everyone plenty of enjoyment on our 50' yacht. Most other yachts do not offer such a feature with difficult foredeck access through a small deck hatch or intimidating, narrow side decks.
The M/Y Nauti Pleasure is a luxury 50-foot Bluewater Yachts M/Y (Motor Yacht) for your private nautical pleasure. Our goal is to provide the Charterer that may or may not have the resources of ownership an opportunity to experience yachting in one of the most sought-after locations for boating; Destin Florida. The Nauti Pleasure has been operating in Destin since 2015 offering two types of charter services:
- 6 Passenger excursions with a professional Captain and crew knowledgeable with all the sites and hot-spots to see while on tour. You'll not find not better price for a "6 pack" on any comparable yacht in Destin starting at $850.00 + tax.
- Recreational Bareboat charters for groups of 7 up to 13. Again you'll not find a better deal on any comparable yacht in Destin. All Bareboat charters are Captained and crewed by your selected crew offered through our service. All Captain's are USCG licensed Masters, knowledgeable of the area, drug & alcohol testing compliant and demonstrated competency with our vessel to assure you a great charter experience.
The Nauti Pleasure is located in the greater Destin / Fort Walton Beach, Okaloosa Island area.

Our regular Port of Call is the waterfront restaurant, "AJ's on the Bayou" in Fort Walton Beach. AJ's on the Bayou has ample free parking right next to the dock, outdoor dockside bar and nightly entertainment. We encourage out guests to take advantage of AJ's take out menu's for your charter. Your selected crew may also arrange special catering and/or food & beverage provisioning prior to your cruise.
How does a Recreational Bareboat Charter work?
Uninspected private recreational vessels are chartered, leased or rented to an individual (Charterer) through a written agreement. The Owner does not provide a Captain or crew. The Charterer selects and contracts a Captain/crew from a pool of qualified Captains and pays them directly at a rate determined between the two parties. The Charterer assumes possession of the vessel as if it were their own. The Charterer is responsible for the operation of the vessel in accordance with all Federal, State and Local law.
The Owner can recommend a list of Captains for the Charterer to hire, but cannot stipulate the selection. (Title 46 U.S. Code Section 2101 (35) states that a chartered 12 passenger vessel cannot be provided a crew "specified" by its owner to qualify as a Recreational Bareboat charter.) The Owner can require the Charterer to hire a Captain with a preset level of qualifications. Captains MUST have demonstrated competency with our vessel, hold at least a U.S.C.G. 25 Ton Master license and comply with Federal random drug/alcohol testing regulations at a minimum. Captains work for the Charterer as an independent contractor on an "at will" basis as agreed between the two parties.
