About Serenidad Sailing

When you're sitting at your desk on a cold winter's day do you ever imagine yourself at the helm of a luxury sailing sloop, the wind in your hair and your loved one(s) at your side? Can you see yourself silently slicing through the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Mexico as the sun melts majestically into the horizon?

Yes? Well you're not alone in having this dream and I'm happy to tell you that it can easily become a reality with one quick call to Serenidad Sailing Charters... Capt Richard and Dina Hamm's gorgeous 2000 41' Beneteau sailboat is available either for private charter, for up to six people, or at low per person rates and the emphasis is on making an experience which is personalized and special just for you.

It's a spacious, beautifully maintained very stable boat with lots of shining chrome and polished wood, a large shaded cockpit area and comfortable cushions for the enormous front deck. With two heads and a beautifully appointed inside cabin at your disposal there's masses of room for you to move around or just lie back and completely relax.

Daytime scheduled cruises are 3 hours long and Dina, the captain's mate, is always there to provide you with everything to make your trip a perfect one. She'll take photos and e-mail them to you later, provide warm fl eecy towels to snuggle up in on colder days, fluffy beach towels to stretch out on in the sun and complimentary ice cold soft drinks. She also offers delicious hors d' ouvres on the 2½ hour sunset cruises and if you would like to bring any other food or beverage on any of the trips, or would like Dina to organize catering of any kind, that' s just fine.

Capt Richard and Dina have lived in the area for nine years so are very knowledgeable about Marco Island and its wildlife (ospreys, dolphin and sea turtles are frequent sightings) and they'll be happy to share their knowledge with you or, if you prefer, they'll just leave you to enjoy the absolute peace and tranquility of sailing. Captain Richard has been sailing the waters in and around the Eastern United States and the Florida Gulf Coast for over 20 years.


A romantic sunset or full moon trip on Serenidad is the perfect backdrop for a marriage proposal or special anniversary celebration. In fact sailing with Serenidad is a great way to celebrate any occasion, or no occasion at all except the company of your family and friends.
