Yachting club adds Miami location


Barton & Gray Mariners Club is bringing yachts to Miami because of the area’s recent economic resurgence.

“We are excited to be berthed at the Miami Beach Marina — this location gives us terrific access to South Beach, Stiltsville and Coral Gables,” B&G said in a recent newsletter.

The company offers membership in a fleet of crewed Hinckley yachts throughout the Eastern Seaboard.

Members have access to the fleet year-round, as well as a crew to organize and facilitate on-the-water experiences, touting “all the joys of yachting … without any of the overhead.”
