About Shaun McMahon

Born and raised in Southern California, I've always had a love for the water. I'm an avid traveler and love finding unique destinations to stay. I started my Boat & Breakfast business 7 years ago and am now expanding my fleet. I scuba dive, sail, try to live a healthy lifestyle and love spending quality with my son doing fun activities.

Shaun McMahon purchased this yacht in 2009

Why Shaun McMahon chose Point Loma

I love staying on this makes me understand the concept of 'freedom' to sail away at a moments notice and enjoy the ultimate pleasures of living on-board a boat.

What makes this yacht unique

I love the classic lines of 'Slipaway', the 'pirate ship' appeal of the big aft stateroom windows and all the custom inlaid hand carved mahogany throughout.

Fantastic Slipaway!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, my two adult boys and I spent three enjoyable nights on the boat. Shaun was so helpful and considerate in helping us check in and board the boat. We scheduled a boat cruise for the day after we boarded the boat but she suggested us to take the cruise right away because the next day might be a rainy day. After we agreed with her suggestion, she immediately made the arrangement for us and the captain took us for an unforgettable tour of the harbor in the amazing sunset. Turned out that It rained the whole day the next day. She really saved our harbor cruise. The boat was really clean, roomy, and comfortable for the four of us. My boys said this was one of the best trip experiences for them. We would do this again.

Wonderful stay on the Slipaway!

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible experience it was staying on the Slipaway! My wife and I hoping to retire on some type of vessel both said this is a must try! It gave us a small taste of hopefully what our future holds in store. Relaxing and yet so much to do nearby. Kayaking around the harbor was really cool with sea lions poking their heads up just a few feet away. We just called the front desk and requested a kayak and minutes later a kayak arrived at our dock. Although this might not be for everyone we loved it so much we are going again! We wanted our two children to have this experience as well. We are staying on Shauns latest addition to the fleet the

"Narnie O'Shea." That might be the only negative about the Slipaway in that although perfect for two and possibly small children we felt the quarters might be a little tight with us and two grown children. Thanks Shaun for giving us the opportunity to experience this adventure. We are genuinely grateful.

Sailing venue and cityscapes in one stay in San Diego

  • 5 of 5

Slipaway was a fantastic way to spend a week in San Diego. Close to restaurants and nightlife. Perfect getaway from the pace at home. Night time offered wonderful views of downtown. Daytime offered scenes of the boating life that is so much a part of San Diego.
