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.

"We always knew about AMIkids, but in 2019 I became involved in a transaction and took an interest to learn about the work various schools do. It struck me —supporting AMIkids is a way in which I can pay-back.

I got involved in helping kids in rough environments make better choices and get on a better route to success. I was happy to be invited to join the board of trustees and help contribute in the ways that I can."

— Neil Emmott, Partner at Superyacht Sales and Charter
