If you’re a boater, you may have seen or stopped at the Food Yacht in Jupiter for a quick bite, but there’s more to the story about this yummy yacht.
Chef and Captain of the 40-foot catamaran proudly anchored up in Jupiter between the A1A and US1 bridge, Justin Lindemann has been a chef in the Palm Beach area for over 16 years, including at Jupiter’s beloved Food Shack. He created the Food Yacht in March of 2015 to pursue his dream of providing delicious food on the beautiful Florida waters and now serves hungry boaters all weekend long.
Not only is he licensed by the town of Jupiter, but he is also inspected by the Department of Food and Health. Although Lindemann has owned his boat for four years, he wasn’t really able to go full time with Food Yacht until about two years ago while he was working out kinks and overcoming challenges like limited electricity and water.
The Food Yacht menu changes depending on availability, but consists of dishes like the Crab Cake Sandwich, the Blackened Fish Wrap, and the Lemon Pepper Seared Tuna Wrap. Not only is Lindemann’s fresh food delicious, but some ingredients are even “Farm to Boat” from his backyard, like sweet potatoes and scallions for the potato salad and butternut squash for soup.
Food Yacht also offers sunset cruises, lunch cruises, snorkel cruises, and even a brunch cruise with a tropical fruit tray, yogurt, deep-dish cheddar cheese quiche with vinaigrette mixed greens, cinnamon French toast or Food Yacht cheesecake, and a choice of bacon, ham sausage, or smoked salmon.
