Florida Yachts International (FYI) is the number one shopping destination for luxury yachts and has a variety of vessels for either cruising in splendor or deep-sea fishing in style. FYI sells some of the world’s finest brands of motor yachts, express cruisers, sport cruisers, convertibles, sport fishing, fly bridge, and mega yachts. In addition to offering up superlative yachts for sale, they also handle luxury charters locally in Miami and all over the world.

Founded in 1993 by Ralph Navarro in Miami, FYI has been an award-winning leader in the yachting industry for more than 20 years. The brand has continued to grow and expand into what is the largest-growing yacht company in Latin America with offices in Venezuela, Colombia, Panama, and Peru. Navarro is an expert in the worldwide super yacht market and is an ambassador of the FYI Super Yacht Division with deep-rooted knowledge of the world’s leading super yacht builders and shipyards.

When it comes to service, FYI’s Superyacht Division excels. From purchasing and choosing styling options, construction and performance features, to selling and charter needs, FYI specializes in helping customers every step of the way.

For charter vacations, they organize every detail just as you’d imagined it in your mind’s eye. That means worry-free time with family and friends aboard your floating paradise. Destinations they handle include the Caribbean, the Bahamas, South Florida, and Europe. Favorite yachting spots in the Bahamas include the Abacos for world-class fishing and the Exumas for great snorkeling and beautiful beaches. In the Virgin Islands, obvious stops like Charlotte Amalie in St. Thomas are avoided, so that guests can enjoy places like Anegada, a hidden gem where the lobster is always fresh and the snorkeling is unbelievable.

In the Caribbean, FYI has yachts available in Antigua, St. Maarten, where you can let loose at the many restaurants and clothing-optional beaches on the French side. St. Barths, where the world’s most impressive yachts fill Gustavia Harbour every New Year’s Eve, is also a favorite. In the Mediterranean, FYI can take you from Spain’s Balearic Isles, The French Riviera, Monaco, Italy’s Cinque Terre and Amalfi Coast, and the beautiful islands of Corsica, Sardinia, and Sicily.

Customer satisfaction is a priority for FYI, which has people working on several continents to ensure clients have a seamless and professional experience.

With such excellent customer service, many customers also want them to handle their private air travel, so in addition to watercraft, the company facilitates the purchase of private jets and helicopters through their FYI Aerostore division.
