Would you like to go for a sunset cruise through the Cocoa Beach thousand islands,
relax, listen to the wind and the waves; all while watching some of the most beautiful sunsets on the east coast. This classic 52 is a rare and unique yacht, Only 13 of these custom yachts were ever built by Cheoy-Lee. This boat was restored from stem to stern in 2005 with all new engines, generator, air conditioners, bilge pumps, windows, galley appliances, head, and bunks. The updated interior is full of rich teak and you can really see the pride in craftsmanship when you step into a yacht like this. This boat is very stable and very safe. These boats were built much stronger then newer boats of the same size.

Safety first! This is one of the only Coastguard inspected and documented vessels on this platform. We also keep on board at all times, a Damage Control Kit, Medical First Aid Kit, EPIRB, Flares, Life Jackets, four Fire Extinguishers, VHF Radio, Radar, GPS, Depth Sounder and 4 Bilge pumps

    Only great things to say about this boat and captain. We booked this boat as part of a bachelorette trip and it was be best decision we made all weekend! The boat was beautiful, clean, and easily fit our group of nine with room to spare. It was so nice to have both a mix of indoor and outdoor areas when the sun became too much, and the fridge and bathroom were so handy. Captain Keith is truly the best— book with him!!! Personable, fun, super outgoing, and a great host and tour guide!! He was so accommodating and FULL of surprises!! If we come back to Cocoa Beach, we will be chartering this boat with Captain Keith again!!

    The owner was very easy to book with and the Captain we chose was AMAZING with all kind of tid bits and local information.
    The Midnight Lace yacht was beautiful with all the extras. I highly recommend!
    Can't wait to plan another outing!

    We had such a blast on Keith’s boat. It was everything we were expecting and more for our 40th birthday girls trip! The sunset was stunning and the dolphins were having as much fun as we were! Keith new all the great spots to take us and was always checking to make sure we had a great time! The messaging through Sailo was a bit glitchy but once I had Keith’s direct # he was super responsive and accommodating. I would highly recommend!

    First of all Captain Keith is a Great Host, being a native of the area he is the perfect guide to ensure that your experience is nothing short of amazing . His boat being one of only 13 built is absolutely stunning while we were out people were constantly complementing him on how beautiful and unique it is. Also as if that wasn’t enough you can get all of this at a VERY reasonable price!!!! If your in the Cocoa Beach Area I would Highly suggest booking a ride with Captain Keith it’s an experience you won’t forget.

    Thank You Keith

    My husband booked Keith to take my family and I out for an evening boat ride on my 40th birthday after returning to the area after several years away. I was hoping to see a lot of wildlife and the bioluminescence in the water, which I had never seen despite growing up in the area and living here for 25 years. Keith did not disappoint! We set off just after 6:30 pm, which was still early enough to see lots of birds along the mangroves and docks of the homes, as well as several dolphins. Keith explained that while it would still be too light out to see the bioluminescence by the end of our schedule sail time, he would be happy to extend by another hour for a reasonable price to allow time for it to get really dark. We were so happy we did! Not only was the bioluminescence so beautiful and amazing to see, but while we were out, a large group of around 10 dolphins decided to play in the wake of the boat on either side. My family and I agreed that seeing such a large group of dolphins playing and jumping out of bright glowing blue water was really an unforgettable experience for us! Keith was very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area and kept checking in on us to see if we needed anything while we were out, which we really appreciated. We will definitely be contacting Keith again for future boating experiences. Thank you, Keith, for making my birthday such a memorable one!

    What a great time we had on the beautiful and clean Midnight Fancy! Captain Keith is extremely knowledgeable and personable. He made a special Father’s Day trip even better! He was very responsive when booking and was quick at answering all questions so that we would be prepared for the wonderful day out! We highly recommend Midnight Fancy and Captain Keith for your next outing in beautiful Florida!
