Rod Taylor at Superyacht Sales and Charter recently facilitated the donation of this amazing Luxury Explorer Yacht.

Gusto Side View 2.1

Delivered in 2002 by Dutch builder Kuipers Woudsend, GUSTO is a 84' / 25.6m long-range expedition yacht.

Designed by famed yacht engineering and naval architecture studio Vripack, GUSTO features a full displacement steel hull and aluminum superstructure with a maximum range of 5,500 nautical miles.

Recently donated to AMIkids, GUSTO is now available for a long-term lease with the option to purchase. All proceeds from her lease will help support the work of AMIkids in 222 counties nationwide.

We also want to thank Neil Emmott, Managing Director at Superyacht Sales and Charter for this contribution, and for supporting the mission of AMIkids in South Florida.

Neil is a board member of AMIkids Greater Fort Lauderdale and his support has been paramount to our program since he joined us. Learn more
