Florida Charter Firm Adds Jeanneau
Prestige 36 to Power Fleet

LADY LYN described as ideal for exploring
Gulf barrier islands in stylish comfort


NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla., January 7, 2010 Southwest Florida Yachts (SWFY) has added a Jeanneau Prestige 36 motoryacht to its charter fleet for cruising the scenic waterways framed by celebrated ports of call like Sanibel, Captiva, Pine, Useppa and Cayo Costa islands.

Barb Hansen, owner and manager of the yacht chartering firm, said the newest vessel in the fleet, LADY LYN, provides roomy and well-appointed accommodations for four adults with the expansive owner's cabin forward and a starboard side guest cabin.

Moving aft you will find the large salon and a galley with refrigerator, microwave and a three-burner stove. Other features include a bathroom and exterior shower. The fly bridge overhead features side-by-side captains chairs, L-style guest seating, dining table and sunbathing area.

Twin Volvo diesel engines power the Lady Lyn smoothly and efficiently, Hansen said. Operation and navigational instrumentation include radar/plotter GPS, autopilot, sonar, temperature gauges, speedometer and VHF marine radio. Creature comfort amenities include air conditioning, TV and a stereo CD player. An outboard-powered dinghy provides handy access to terra firma from anchorages.

Lady Lyn joins the power fleet with vessels from 28 to 43 feet at Marinatown Marina in N. Fort Myers. Founded in 1984, Southwest Florida Yachts also charters sailing yachts from 24 to 34 feet, including catamarans, out of Burnt Store Marina in Punta Gorda.

Extra Cruising Days
Hansen said Lady Lyn will charter for $4,090 for one week in the winter and $3,273 in the summer. Through 2010 Southwest Florida Yachts, celebrating its 25th anniversary, is awarding charters extra cruising days. For each cruise of three days or more charters receive two free days when cruising between May 1 and Dec. 14 and one free day for cruises between Dec. 15 and April 30.

Southwest Florida has been ranked among the top ten yacht sailing and cruising areas in the world and the barrier islands of Sanibel and Captiva have scored as the best islands to visit for their ambiance, beaches, friendliness, restaurants and scenery.
