About Us-OLD

An Exclusive Adventure
Your Invitation Awaits

As we go through life, we begin to understand that life is full of priceless irreplaceable moments. It’s those moments that make us feel deeply. When we wake up each morning, it’s those moments we come back to – that remind us why we started. Why it all truly matters.

Our charters include food, our Captain and crew, fuel and the wonderful amenities for you to enjoy such as a Dinghy, SUP, and more.

Meet Vanguard, our one-of-kind 84’ Sunseeker Luxury Yacht. With immense craftsmanship, Sunseeker designed her in the United Kingdom at their Poole, Dorset shipyard.

Vanguard is our invitation to you to step into a portal where those perfect moments transform into stories. With the pen in your hand, remember that possibilities are endless. This is your story, welcome aboard

She is captained and crewed with seasoned and professional experience. Our charters are personalized and curated for your individualized vision of your trip out on beautiful Tampa Bay waters.

Vanguard adds a special touch to your occasion and outing. We offer Sunset Cruises, Day Cruises, Overnight Cruises, and even Weekend cruises to beautiful destinations on the West Coast of Florida.

“What a beautiful weekend and experience we had with Sunburst Yacht Charters. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The yacht was beautiful, clean and spacious for our large family.”

Danielle K.

“We used Sunburst yacht for a company outing and we couldn’t be happier! Heather was so easy to work with and was great about communication. Captain Wendy was also incredible as was the whole staff! We loved our time on the boat and couldn’t have asked for a better crew or betting experience.”

Lanny M.

“Beautiful and pristine boat. Also very spacious! There is a lot of outside seating for those who want to enjoy the fresh air and sun but a lot of space inside as well. The layouts inside and outside are great IMO.”

Splashed Out, an 88ft Sunseeker built in 2010, is the newest member of our fleet. This yacht was acquired in January of 2022, and after a round of upgrades including robust new systems for security and waste water treatment, she’s ready to join the fun!


Like Vanguard, Splashed Out is a three-deck yacht with a hydraulic swim platform, covered flybridge, and bow daybeds and bench seating. Splashed Out also features four bedrooms sleeping eight, but here is where Splashed Out differs: Whereas Vanguard features a twin bunk bedroom that shares a bathroom with the side-by-side twin bedrooms, Splashed Out has two side-by-side twin bedrooms, each with their own full bathroom.

This is in addition to the two luxurious queen bedrooms you will also find aboard this yacht. That means Splashed Out is an excellent option if you are considering a multi-day charter and don’t want to compromise on comfort.

Following the stairs up from the lower deck to the middle deck, you have a fifth bathroom, a dedicated day head so that guests can use the restroom without walking through a bedroom. Splashed Out also boasts an enclosed full galley where a private chef or catering team have plenty of space to spread out and work while guests are completely insulated from any kitchen chaos. When it comes to private chef dinners, you can consider Splashed Out a specialist.

From there, the two yachts begin to look similar again. Both yachts feature a spacious salon with a TV, Apple TV, and complementary Wi-Fi. Both have a large outdoor dinner table on the aft deck, and on the flybridge, both include a bar, outdoor grill, and group seating large enough to accommodate your entire group without overcrowding.
