Welcome to Emerald Coast Yachts!

We are a family-owned, award winning, sailing school and charter company that provides American Sailing Association (ASA) certified sailing instruction, bareboat charters and captained day sails along the Emerald Gulf Coast of Florida.

Whether you are just learning to sail, taking your skills to the next level, or want to cruise our emerald green waters, ECY can help you make your sailing dreams come true!


ASA Sailing School

Our sailing school specializes in private, live-aboard sailing classes for couples, families, and friends who want to acquire the skills needed for bareboat chartering, cruising, or future yacht ownership. Our sailing classes are engineered to get you as much experience and confidence on the water as possible. We limit our class size, extend our class length, and provide skilled, dedicated sailing instructors to ensure students receive the best sailing instruction available.

We are the ideal sailing school for couples, families and friends who want to learn the art of sailing - together.

For information about our award winning sailing school please click here.


ECY Sailing Charters

We offer bareboat charters and captained chartered day sails along the Emerald Gulf Coast of Florida. Our area offers some of the finest cruising in Florida - or anywhere. Our bareboat charters have been featured in Cruising World, Sail, and Sailing magzines. If you're looking for that "different" bareboat charter -- you've got to experience cruising in our area to believe it. We're convinced the Emerald Coast is the best kept sailing secret in the world! We feature Beneteau, Hunter, and Catalina yachts.

For information about charters along our beautiful Emerald Coast please click here.


About Our Area

Our sailing school and charter base are located on the beautiful Gulf Coast of Florida in an area known as the Emerald Coast. We are in the Florida Panhandle, very close to the Florida-Alabama line.

Pensacola Beach was recently selected as one of TripAdvisor's Top 25 Beaches in the U.S. and winner of TripAdvisor's 2013 Traveler's Choice Awards.

Our boats are at Sabine Marina on Pensacola Beach. Our offices and classrooms are in Gulf Breeze, just across the Pensacola Beach Bridge from the marina. We feature Santa Rosa Sound, the Gulf Intra-coastal Waterway (GICW), the Gulf of Mexico, Pensacola Bay, Perdido Bay, scenic bayous, sugar white sands, gorgeous sunsets and more.


Santa Rosa Sound to Dauphin Island

This secton of NOAA Chart No. 11378, ICW Santa Rosa Sound to Dauphin Island, shows Little Sabine, where our boats are located, the Gulf Intra-Coastal Waterway, Pensacola Bay, Pensacola Pass, Gulf of Mexico, and gives you an idea of how varied and interesting our teaching and chartering grounds are.
