MarineMax Vacations expands to Europe

MarineMax Vacations is expanding its current range of services from sailing and power charter yacht vacations in the Caribbean to include inland waterway vacations in Europe provided by Locaboat Holidays.

“Locaboat, through their 35 years in operation, has an unrivaled reputation for quality and service, making them a natural partner for MarineMax Vacations,” MarineMax Vacations president Lex Raas said in a statement.

Locaboat Holidays offers clients the ability to captain their own boat in six countries in Europe — France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Ireland and Poland. The yachts sleep between four and 12 people.

MarineMax Vacations already operates a charter fleet of new Dufour 41- and 43-foot sailing yachts in the British Virgin Islands. The company recently announced the addition of the new MarineMax 382 power catamarans, available for charter in the BVI in July, and the new MarineMax 464 power catamarans, available for charter vacations in January 2013.
