The Space

The boat is located about a ten minute dinghy ride from Old Town Key West, in a sheltered anchorage known as the the dolphin playground.
Yep, dolphins, we have resident pods here and I can tell you that they make for good neighbors.
Along with sea turtles, great blue herons. snook, tarpon and grumpy old salts, it makes for quite the neighborhood.
The bay is sheltered so you don't have to worry about the boat rocking, even in rough weather.

The sunsets down here really are amazing and I can think of no better place to watch it than from right here, with a glass of wine or a cup of tea. After the sunsets, watch for shooting stars and listen for dolphins.

She's not a yacht,and she's not trying to be.She's got a classic comfortable charm.
The vberth is big and comfy. watch the moon pass accross the sky thru the open hatch.
There is a dining area for ,well, dining. And playing cards or puzzles. Reading. you know, stuff like that.
There is an electric head, which is simple to use. It is clean and well ventilated. As far as boat heads go, it's the bees knees.

There is a grill and a cooler, which are really the most important things on any boat. You can bring out steak and if you get some lobsters, make surf and turf. You can also provision your whole trip from some great local sandwich shops that are cheap and delicious and dockside.

There is no internet,no cable. just reading lights and some speakers for you to hook your player into.

There are no showers or running water on the boat. Some day, not today. there are showers available on the dock for $6, or showers at the free public pool, which is a great pool that is
worth the trip for anyone.

It's glamping. a comfy bed, a roof over head, and privacy. and amazing views.
It's also close to Old Town, so you can explore the galleries, restaurants, and beaches. It's not like your stuck out in Stock Island. So you can just rent a bike or scooter and get around. I can arrange that.

It's probably not a great place if you like things normal and predictable. And it's not a great place to be a party headquarters. But if you're looking to enjoy a relaxing and mellow time, this is pure magic.

Guest Access

Guests have access to the boat via a small dinghy that will be driven by me or one of my friends. A nice kayak for exploring, and snorkeling gear
