Yachts For Sale In Jacksonville

Bisected by the north-flowing St John’s River with its many tributaries and creeks, the city of Jacksonville boasts 7 bridges! As Florida’s longest river (310 miles), the vast St Johns slowly meanders out to the Atlantic Ocean via the St Johns River Inlet. The St Johns is a major commercial shipping channel and boaters are cautioned to watch out for large ships and tugs when navigating the channel and through Jacksonville. Mayport, on the Inlet, is the site of shrimp boat docks where the famous white northeast Florida Mayport Shrimp are offloaded and distributed to the many local seafood restaurants and beyond. The Atlantic Intercoastal Waterway (AICW) runs into the St Johns at Sisters Creek to the north and picks up again in the southeast at Chicpoit Bay. The St Johns River provides boaters access to some of the most beautiful beaches and islands in northeast Florida.
