MarineMax adds 88-foot Ferretti to yacht charter fleet

Publish date:

MarineMax said it added Dot Calm, a 2009 881 Ferretti, to the company’s fleet of private yacht charters.

The yacht can accommodate as many as eight guests in four cabins, each with their own head, and four crewmembers.

It features a whirlpool on the flybridge, two Seabobs, a Fun Air waterslide, a 14-foot inflatable boat, a Yamaha jet ski, fishing gear, a 25-foot Scout boat, tow sport toys, a grill and a retractable sun shade.

MarineMax said that during the summer the yacht can be found along the New England coast. In the winter it makes its way down to South Florida and the Bahamas.

“We are happy to have Dot Calm joining our available yacht charters,” Yacht Charter Management vice president Bob Saxon said in a statement. “This year has been a whirlwind, with our fleet nearly doubling in size.”
