Fort Lauderdale’s Windridge Yacht Charters, which owns the Lady Windridge and Windridge K vessels, has been acquired by Chicago-based harbor cruise company Entertainment Cruises.
Financial details of the sale, which closed last month, were not disclosed.
The 131-foot Windridge K is scheduled for renovations this summer that will take it out of commission for about a month. Major changes are not in store for the 170-foot Lady Windridge, which can hold about 432 guests. Both yachts are able to depart from locations in Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, Palm Beach and Miami.
Entertainment Cruises describes itself as the country’s “largest dining and sightseeing cruise company,” with 30 ships operating out of destinations including Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, New York and Washington, D.C. The company did not have a presence in South Florida before buying Windridge Yacht Charters.
