  • Just what is Yachty Rentals?

Yachty Rentals is a company created by a former yacht crew to service the industry. We’ve evolved from just renting scooters to offer a long list of services for yachties because we understand the industry from standby to standby. We provide the best rates and cater directly to the crew.

Our services are a small necessity to keep crew moving forward. Our easy approach to car rentals includes brand new vehicles and we offer pick up from the airport or we can drop off at a marina or boatyard. Book a ride online at

We are a dealer for new and used scooters and we have a wide selection of brands. We even have our own repair service for scooters and motorcycles. We have a full-time mechanic who can help with personal vehicles and we offer an affordable tow truck service.

Crew are surprised at all we offer. We have a full-time notary at our office and we have even married some yachties.

We have tailor-made mailboxes and storage services. We can store just about anything from golf clubs to cars; storage inside or out. We have mail boxes with a street address, which is not like using a post office box. It’s a great opportunity to receive packages, bank statements, driver licenses and things that require a physical address. This way crew can send packages, and we do mail forwarding.

We rent RVs (motor homes), which are land yachts. Crew have booked them for a weekend trip with buddies or for overnight trips so they wouldn’t need a hotel room. We even have a 29-foot Century tender for rent, and it comes with a tow hitch. It has a walk-around center console with head, outriggers and two 250 Yamaha engines.  Great for charters and fishing.

  • Where do people pick up a scooter?

We offer two convenient locations as well as other options. Our business is behind Lester’s Diner on State Road 84 in Ft. Lauderdale. We also have scooters at the National Marine location at Bahia Mar on Ft. Lauderdale beach. People can always call us for delivery. We will deliver the scooter or car directly to them.

  • How did you get the idea for this company?

Rai: As a dayworker without any transportation, stranded or stuck in Derecktor Shipyard, I found out how hard, if not almost impossible, it is to find any means of transport. When I did find it, I found that it was far away and oh, so very expensive.

  • How long have you been in the industry?

Rai has worked in the yachting and boating industry for more than 12 years.

  • Who will captains and crew work with?

They will always work with the two owners, that being Boss Lady Cynthea and Rai DeSousa, as well as Sue.

  • So, how do crew rent a ride?
