The AeroVanti Club is setting sail on a new venture: yachting.
The private aviation club has launched the new AeroVanti Yacht Club, which will officially begin charters March 31. The new leg of the company is designed to offer a luxury yachting experience through a membership structure.
The club’s fleet will include 108-foot Sunseeker Predator “Casino Royale,” named for its appearance in the 2006 James Bond movie “Casino Royale,” 50-foot Buddy Davis sportfishing boat “Permit” and 50-foot Cookson sailboat “En Garde.”
“We launched AeroVanti because we believe you can experience both luxury and value in private aviation,” AeroVanti Founder and CEO Patrick Britton-Harr says in a release. “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.”
Britton-Harr was also a Business Observer 40 Under 40 winner in 2022.
The company, which is dual-headquartered in Sarasota and Annapolis, Maryland, has grown 400% since launching in July 2021, according to the release.
The release credits two fundraising rounds that led to over $100 million as well as several mergers and acquisitions events for the growth. But also the company becoming the exclusive private aviation provider for the University of Maryland Athletics, University of Central Florida Knights and Tampa Bay Buccaneers helped as well.
