NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla. - January 8, 2013—Southwest Florida Yachts has added the Mainship 34-foot Trawler – Quarter Moon – to its charter fleet for cruising the southwest Florida gulf coast, including the scenic Pine Island-Sanibel-Captiva area.

Quarter Moon is the perfect cruiser for two to four people,” said Barb Hansen of Southwest Florida Yachts. “She is shippy, comfortable and very well-equipped for the ideal vacation afloat.” 

The 34-foot Quarter Moon features a master forward with sleeping for two and a salon convertible that also sleeps two.  It has a complete head with shower and offers holly and teak flooring.  Headroom is a comfortable 6-foot-4-inches. She also has an aft deck shower.  The galley down is fully-featured with a refrigerator, icemaker, stove, microwave and toaster oven. 

Cruisers will enjoy her twin color TV’s, AM/FM stereo systems with CD players, air conditioning and barbecue grill, as well as swim platform and swim ladder.

Powered by a Yanmar, 315 hp engine with dual helm control, Quarter Moon also features a Side Power bow thruster, Danforth compasses at each helm, Raymarine VHF radio, GPS chartplotter and Autopilot. She has an outboard powered dinghy and more. 

Based here with Southwest Florida Yacht’s power cruisers, ranging in length from 32- to 50-feet, Quarter Moon charters for $3,957 weekly during the winter season and $3.165 during the summer.  Hansen noted winter charters of three days or longer through April 30 earn one free cruising day as part of the company’s 30th anniversary in 2014.  Three day or longer summer charters earn two free days of cruising.

Southwest Florida is continually ranked as one of the world’s best cruising and sailing areas.  Visitors cite the barrier islands of Sanibel and Captiva as the best islands to visit for their ambiance, beaches, friendliness, restaurants and scenery.
