The newest power yacht for charter boasts lots of room for friends and family to have loads of fun cruising Southwest Florida's scenic waters

NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla., April 30, 2012 –The Southwest Florida Yachts charter fleet has a new power cruiser -- her name is Lucy – a spacious Custom Cat 45 that accommodates up to eight adults for exploring the beautiful Southwest Florida coastline and inland waterway.

The roomy catamaran has four double cabins and two heads with walk-in showers. It has a huge salon where friends and family can relax around a U-shaped settee and listen to music or watch high-def movies on a flat screen TV with a surround-sound speaker system. The galley is large and fully equipped for refueling a boatload of cruisers. The coffee table has four large seats that pull out to provide storage below.

This cat loves the water. Lucy is powered by twin four-stroke 250-hp Suzuki outboards with excellent fuel economy and providing responsive steering while underway and for docking. The skipper has a full array of instrumentation including GPS and autopilot navigation assistance.

Lucy is one of nine power yachts from 32 to 50 feet in the Southwest Florida Yachts fleet at Marinatown Marina in N. Fort Myers. Fleet headquarters just off the Caloosahatchee River gives charters easy and quick access to one of the best cruising and sailing areas in the world, the Gulf of Mexico and the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway along scenic mangrove island rookeries and relaxing ports of call on Sanibel, Captiva, Pine and Useppa Islands. Visitors have scored the barrier islands tops for their beaches, ambiance, friendliness, restaurants and scenery.
