Approaching 30 years in business, the Florida Sailing & Cruising School and its sister division, Southwest Florida Yachts, announced a three-year promotion for boating courses and yacht charters.
Barb and Vic Hansen, who started the businesses in 1984, announced that sail and power students at the liveaboard yacht school who graduate between Jan. 1, 2012, and Dec. 31, 2014, will receive a free Weems & Plath navigation tool, either parallel rules or dividers, depending on availability.
Also, Southwest Florida Yachts will give charter customers free cruising days. In the high season between Dec. 15 and April 30, cruises of three days or longer will become four-day cruises at no extra charge. Summer cruises of three days or longer will become five-day cruises at no extra charge.
The firm maintains 11 poweryachts from 32 to 50 feet at its headquarters at Marinatown Marina in North Fort Myers, Fla.
