Community & Giftivism – Giving Back

Jana Sheeder & 1-800 Yacht Charter Team Distribute FoodWith over 35 years’ expertise, a passion for yachting, and a compelling sense of purpose to work for our clients, the team at 1-800 Yacht Charters is energized to succeed with a deeper motivation – to make the world a better place.

We are dedicated to the concept of “Giftivism” – the practice of radically generous acts that transform the world.

Helping The People

South Florida is the yachting capital of the world. First, it is the place we call home. We are proud to be part of our local community. For instance, we volunteer at our local homeless and animal shelters.  We organize collections of food and clothing for the needy.  Our company constantly pushes ourselves to actively participate in acts of Giftivism every day.

Helping The Seas

“Delivering The Superyacht Experience™” is more than our slogan; it’s part of our culture. Our yachts are a portal to a global odyssey, and it is the ocean that binds this odyssey together. Like you, we know that protecting our future means preserving the marine environment and promoting responsibility onboard our yachts, in the seas and along our shores.

Our crews are proactive about what, where, and how they source food and beverages for their onboard guests. Furthermore, in lieu of plastic water bottles, our clients are offered reusable beverage containers.

In addition, 1-800 Yacht Charter supports marine and coastal cleanup projects. When you charter with us, a donation is made in your name to a marine life conservation group or island community charity.


In conclusion, there is a lot we have done.  There is still more we can do.  Our commitment to Giftivism and Community continue to grow.  We are excited to make an even more meaningful impact in the years ahead.
