Legendary Yacht Club, in Destin, Fla, is offering special rates for those affected by the oil spill.

"We have taken on quite a few and are willing to help out anyone who needs help and a safe haven for their vessels," Joni Johnson, executive sales and leasing director, Legendary Yacht Club/Legendary Marine, told Soundings Trade Only. "We have a transportation company as well and if anyone needs any type of boat transportation, we can take care of that, too."

Johnson said the club has taken on about 10 boats and has had numerous phone calls from concerned boaters.

"In regards to boaters being concerned in our area, it's definitely a thought that is deep in all of our minds, but everyone is boating as usual, fishing as usual and its business as usual, "Johnson said. "Our Coast Guard and local officials are prepared and ready if anything does threaten to come our way, but emerald-green waters and sugar-white beaches are still very much in business and get a lot of usage."
