This November, Miami-based Seafair launches a second superyacht, bringing a new, luxe experiential setting for big-group soirees to Naples and Marco Island. “Seafair looks like a big, fast yacht, but the bottom is like a flat barge,” founder David Lester says. Designed to host up to 600 people, the 165-foot superyacht—by star yacht designer Luiz de Basto—can drop its docking spuds to anchor close to shore, where guests board from a catamaran shuttle.

While the boat can easily cruise waters like Gordon Pass and into Naples City Dock, for now, David plans to keep Seafair at Rose Marina, near the JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort. 

The charter offers catering options from a Michelin-trained chef, and you can add planning services, entertainment and decor. A stage is set for concerts and auctions—and, if it rains, walls of windows below deck provide Gulf views. “This gives guests an experience on the water that they wouldn’t get any other way,” David says.
