It stays at the dock and is used as a floating dockside yacht bed and breakfast hotel which sleeps up to six (6) overnight guests in three (3) private guest rooms. Each guest room has its own private bathroom, TV with built in DVD player, internet access, climate control and windows. Each guest room can accomodate up to two (2) overnight guests.
The yacht's well-furnished, comfortable main salon on the main deck has a flat screen TV, bar with two (2) refrigerators, ice maker, etc. and a day head (bathroom). A circular staircase connects the main salon the the guest rooms and bridge. Enjoy the views, sunshine and moonlight from the cushioned bridge and bow of the yacht, both perfect spots to relax and watch the sunrise or sunset over the ocean.
