Come and try the live-a-board lifestyle. A spacious, dry and comfortable, 41 foot yacht with heat and A/C. Make your own meals at the full galley, or walk 2 minutes to a cafe on the marina property. A waterside vacation just a mile off of I-5.

The Space

Check out the waterview sunrise and sunsets, enjoy the marina wildlife, including ducks, geese, great blue herons and the occasional beaver. The forward cabin has an island style queen berth. The secondary cabin has two single bunk beds, these would not be comfortable for big or tall folks. Solid countertops and remodeled galley, with new hardwood floors and plenty of dark wood throughout make a cozy environment. We are in the flight path for PDX, so depending on the wind direction we may experience airplane traffic overhead. Also, there are new condos being built at the marina next door and construction noise may be present.
This rental is for a stay on the boat at the marina, and not a charter, the boat stays at the dock. Guests should be fairly mobile, the marina access ramp can get steep with river level changes. Click on our photo to the right and see our other listings, we also have an 80 foot small ship, the Zephyr, available for larger groups up to 8.

Guest Access

Guests will have access to the boat at the dock, the marina facilities restroom/shower (key card accessed), carts to bring down luggage, a single person kayak, and an icemaker (summer months only) which is on the dock. Coin laundry is available in the marina building. Swimming is never allowed in the marina.

Interaction with Guests

We are available to answer questions. Our residence, another boat, is on the adjoining dock. We are usually up and around by 8:00 AM and tucked in by 10:00 PM. General questions are welcome during these times, we can be contacted for emergencies at any time day or night. Please arrange your travel so that you can arrive at our place by 9:30 PM on your arrival date at the latest. We have to meet you to let you in for check-in, the entrance gate is electronically secured at all times.

The Neighborhood

Hayden Island is the only island community located in the City of Portland which makes it very unique to the area. Restaurants and services of all kinds are just 3 minutes down the road.

Getting around

Parking is free and plentiful at the marina.
The marina is 1.5 miles East of I-5 on Hayden Island (Jantzen Beach). Public transit ends on the West side of I-5.
We are approx. 10 minutes drive from downtown Portland, and 5 minutes to downtown Vancouver which is right across the Columbia River.

Check In
  • Amazing host Ashley& Ron . They have taken great strides to give their boat a warm comfortable feeling with all the amenities possible . A perfect and relaxing stay .

  • This was a dream vacation and I'd recommend without reserve for anyone visiting Portland and looking for a bit of a different perspective on the world. As the other reviewers state, Ashely goes out of her way to make you feel welcome. There are many little touches – like fruit, muffins, eggs and stuff in the fridge – to make you feel at home.
    There are a few things to note – as others have said, the marina is in the flight path of the airport. It wasn't a problem for us at all, but you might want to be advised.
    We loved this – the bedding was very comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked for cooking, etc. etc. Hope to return.

  • We had a wonderful time staying on Ashley's boat! She was very friendly and accommodating, especially when we were unclear on when we would be able to checkin. She provided a very comprehensive tour of the boat, which is well taken care of and offered plenty of space for the three of us who stayed. There was plenty of parking at the Marina and the facilities were very well taken care of (especially compared to those at camp grounds, for example).

    I would highly recommend staying on the boat. The only downside was that, even after 14 hours of driving home, we all still felt a slight rocking sensation as if we were still there.

  • My co-workers and I have had a fantastic experience staying on Ashley's boat! It was really great to wake up to the view of the marina and being away from the city. Ashley is a wonderful host -- she gave us a tour of the boat and made sure we're settled in.

    I'd highly recommend staying on Ashley's boat!

  • We enjoyed the boat and Ashley was a great host. The last day we were so relaxed that we overslept. That is somthing that never happens!

  • I text Ashley when I was an hour near and she responded very quickly. I met her and she showed us her yacht how to use the stove and bathroom. We came on a raining day so we didn't get to lay out but it was comfy being inside. There is plenty of room for 4 ppl. I would recommend this to anyone who want to experience the yacht experience. Probably not good for ppl who is sensitive to movement. My daughter got sea sick but she got over it overnight. Thanks Ashley for letting us stay on your yacht!

  • We had a wonderful time on the boat! Ashley is such a warm and inviting person!

  • Ashley was an amazing host! The yacht was clean and cosy with simple kitchen equipment to make a nice breakfast and some simple dinner. She even stocked up the fridge with juice and some English muffins. The supermarket, Safeway is just located 5 mins away from the accomodation and Target is really nearby as well. We had a parcel that was due to arrive and Ashley was so kind to constantly check with the office and keep us updated about it despite her busy schedule. We loved our stay with Ashley and will definitely come back to stay when we head to Portland again :)

  • What could unjangle those city nerves better than waking up at night to gentle rocking, silence and a view of distant lights reflecting off the water? Ashley was a perfect host, responsive and helpful but unobtrusive, with an enthusiasm that was infectious.

  • Staying on this yacht was a wonderful experience. I loved waking up to the view of the water and the boats, the whole area is gorgeous. The yacht itself is clean and adorable, and it has everything you might need. Ashley even bought some breakfast items for us! Ashley is so friendly, welcoming and helpful! I'll be moving to Portland soon, and when I don't have enough room for all my guests - you can be sure I'll be sending them over to the yacht! Thank you so much for having us!!
