In the year and half since launching AeroVanti Club, AeroVanti has completely reinvented private air travel. Now, it’s time to turn to the sea.
January 26, 2023, Sarasota, Florida – AeroVanti Club, which has completely transformed private aviation through an inclusive and competitive membership model, has now turned its sights to the sea, today announcing the launch of AeroVanti Yacht Club. AeroVanti Yacht Club will offer members a luxury yachting experience unlike anything available today through AeroVanti’s unique membership structure, combining the affluence and comfort of yachting with the incredible value and convenience unique to AeroVanti Club members. Charters begin March 31, 2023.
Headquartered in the Tampa/St. Petersburg, Florida area, AeroVanti Yacht Club features three of the most distinctive vessels around: “Casino Royale,” “Permit” and “En Garde,” each of which offers a completely unique maritime experience. “Casino Royale” is a 108-foot Sunseeker Predator that combines the opulence of a Mediterranean luxury charter with a dash of Hollywood charm. The “Casino Royale” was featured in the 2006 James Bond movie, “Casino Royale,” appearing as the floating lair of the villain.
“Permit” is a 50-foot Buddy Davis sportfishing boat that would make Hemingway proud. Featuring the fighting chair from the storied fishing boat, “The Hooker,” members can charter “Permit” for their next fishing tournament.
And for those who want a once-in-a-lifetime experience of competitive sailing reminiscent of The Rolex Cup, there’s “En Garde,” a 50-foot Cookson sailboat that sails competitively for the AeroVanti Sailing Team and is also available for charter to recreate that experience for guests.
“We launched AeroVanti because we believe you can experience both luxury and value in private aviation,” said AeroVanti Founder and CEO Patrick Britton-Harr. “And the incredible growth we’ve experienced in the year and half since launching demonstrates that people are hungry for these exclusive travel experiences. Now, we’ve set out to completely redefine the modern yacht club – with three of the most memorable vessels at sea – just like we did with private aviation.”
Since launching in July 2021, AeroVanti has experienced 400% growth, led by multiple M&A events to support expansion, two historic fundraising rounds of more than $100 million, and exclusive partnerships with the University of Maryland, University of Central Florida, and the World Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers. AeroVanti was named a 2023 “startup to watch” by both the Baltimore Business Journal and the Tampa Bay Business Journal.
