Description

You will be staying on a Catamaran Cruiser motor yacht moored in a marina. By Wikipedia definition "a cruiser is, ... built with enough comfort and space to live on permanently." Before arrival we will provide a GPS street address closest to it's mooring.

We have a number of 35SE Cruiser model motor yachts and we are really excited to host you in one of them!

Fully insulated and heated for winter! A/C for summer.

Unique houseboat with all the amenities ...

We are 13 miles from JFK Airport!

Wireless internet/TV with large screen TV in bedroom.

Safe environment. There are lots of friendly neighbors. We also stay on the dock in another houseboat!

There is one double bed in main cabin for guests who are comfortable bunking together and then a twin width couch or fold down booth in front cabin. We also have single guest "foldaway" beds for extra guests

This is a great neighborhood to relax in after the hubbub of the city!

Its relatively quiet (compared to other neighborhoods) with great ethnic food and shops nearby.

Get a great nights sleep then you're ready for the city again!

Close to Coney Island/Brighton Beach/Sheepshead Bay

I also have a Pinterest page whose address Ill send you.

We have sheet and towels so you don't need to bring any.

There is no engine on the (email hidden)'s just for living.

Standard boat sized bathroom with fully functional shower (see picture)

Approximately 35 mins from downtown Manhattan Chinatown, 40 minutes from Central Park :-).

We offer a free car service to and from the Sheepshead Bay subway station between 8-11 pm

If you have a car there is ample free parking.

Local:
There is a movie complex including Imax theatre, Dunkin Donuts, Subway, Pizzaria, Cold Stone, Jordan's Lobster, TGI Friday's and 24 hour deli on the corner with prepared foods.

Security:
Access to the marina property is only via a locked security gate and a security guard stays in the marina.

Look forward to hearing from you!

The whole boat is yours, currently moorings on both sides are vacant. There are 2 one man sitontop kayaks and one 2 man sitontop kayak for you use. We also provide a free car service to the local subway station. There is free parking for 2 cars and more if needed.

We stay on another houseboat in the marina and so we are readily available if you have questions

See Guidebook section.
The Emmons street waterfront is a cosmopolitan fun place with restaurants, boats, exotic markets with foods from all over the world. Ships to watch the sunset, New Yorks skyline and whales. Ships to spend a day fishing in the Atlantic, ships to dine and wine on and ships to go out dancing on.

For more see Lisa's Pinterest page under the name lisadusa1234

We have a free car service to the subway and its 20mins plus to downtown Manhattan with service every 10mins from 6am to 10:30pm then every 20mins. We are also a block away from the B4, BM3 Express and B44 Select bus terminus.

The Select busses provide high speed service with few stops and auto green light ability. The Express busses are slightly more expensive and luxury motor coach type vehicles.

The B4 goes to Sheepshead Bay subway station with access to the B Express and Q Local subway lines and then continues on Bay Ridge. B44 Select goes to Flatbush Target Mall/Brooklyn College (20mins), with access to 2 and 5 subway lines and continues on all the way to Williamsburg. The BM3 goes to Manhattan

Compared to Manhattan and even the Burroughs, the boat is in a very quiet area. This is mainly due to an 8' high imitation grass fence and the fact that the marina's is well below the surrounding ground level. This also protects us from wind making the marina very placid

Notwithstanding, we are next to a large cinema complex, 4 restaurants, a 24/7 deli with excellent prepared foods. A short walk away is an excellent beach situated in a national park.

We live on quiet dock...we ask that people observe quiet hours that go from 9 pm to 9 am.

There are wood floor installed in boat. If they get wet we ask that you dry them (we will provide towels to do so). We have spent a lot of time upgrading and making the boat very livable. We just ask that you would treat our place like you would yours! Thank you!

Please also note that no pets or animals are allowed. The waterway we are moored on is part of the Gateway National Park and regulation prohibit the same for our location.
