Bareboat charter in Florida?

Anyone know of any bareboat charters in Florida (Gulf, Keys, etc.) that has modest boats at reasonably prices? We currently sail and cruise a 25 footer without headroom for most of the summer in the Great Lakes, so anything 25 feet or bigger will do just fine for a week.

I'm looking for something that would be affordable and fun, perhaps something along the lines of a Catalina 27, IP 27, O'day, etc.

Thanks guys. The Watkins 25 at Treasure Harbor looks like about what I'm looking for.

Anyone care to give me a quick synopsis of sailing around Islamorada? Any good anchorages? Good restaurants with dockage? Good daysails?

Pam at Treasure Harbor will be able to provide lots of help about sailing the area. Duck Key can be fun, found some good places to eat in the boot key area, and if you are down that far Bahai Honda State Park - only access off of Hawk.
