Nov 14, 2016 by Guest Writer

Join us and Yachty Rentals for our third-Wednesday-of-the-month event from 6-8 p.m. No RSVP required.

All captains, crew and industry professionals welcome.

Yachty Rentals hosts Triton networking on Nov. 16 for yacht crew and industry professionals from 6-8 p.m., our third-Wednesday-of-the-month event, in Ft. Lauderdale. (There is no regular networking on the first Wednesday of the month due to the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, which runs Nov. 3-7.) No RSVP required.

Join Marine Industry Cares Foundation’s annual fall tradition by bringing non-perishable goods to help Children’s Diagnostic & Treatment Center (CDTC) and Kids In Distress provide direct support and food to families in need. Click for details.

Company founder Rai DeSousa was a former yacht crew member and knows firsthand what crew go through when they arrive someplace and don’t have their own transportation. He and his wife, Cynthea, run Yachty Rentals and they wanted to free flow their Q&A this month, so here’s what they say:

“855-55-scoot is now way much more than scooter rentals. That’s how we started the company. Now we rent cars, SUVs, seven-seat passenger luxury vans and compact vehicles at very competitive prices. Just show us a current invoice or a quote and we will either match it or beat it.

“We speak ‘yachty’ and we understand the industry is filled with last-minute departures and early arrivals. Need added drivers because of crew departures and additions? No problem, we accommodate crew.networking

“Book a crew car with us and the crew enjoy discounts on all of our other services. Some of our services include mail box rentals, storage and oh, please don’t forget our 30-foot center console tender with the tow hitch. It’s perfect for charter.

“We have been very fortunate to be where we are right now with all of our rental capabilities. So a huge big shout out to Mary and Dean … that rhymes with … National Marine. They have given us the best boost. The other shout out goes to Lisa Morley and the gang at Maritime Professional Training (MPT). Thank you so much for everything.”

Contact Yachty Rentals at 855-55-SCOOT, +1 954-226-9177, or yachtyrentals.com. Join the event south of State Road 84 in the neighborhood behind Lester’s Diner at 205 S.W. 28th St., Ft. Lauderdale (33315).
