The boat is a really cool, very original Florida Keys sailboat. There is plenty of space inside and out. The cockpit is large and comfy to hang ot and have a drink and there is a large front area for laying out and sunbathing! Amba has a cozy main saloon, with 6ft 2in headroom, there is seating for 4 with fold out bed for 2 and a queen V berth bed for 2. There is also a smaller aft cabin that can sleep 2 but it is used for storage. The boat sleeps 6 but I think 2-4 is best. There is a fresh water, shower, sink ,"Head"(a head is toilet but on boats) There is a 2 burner stove top so if you want to heat up and make the basics or make your own creations you can! This boat has every thing you need for a great time! Come see for your self! This is true Key West boat life at its best! It is very relaxing and beautiful out here! At night you can here the local music playing from the wharf and the stars are amazingly bright at night! This adventure is way cheaper than any hotel in the area and way better than camping! Somewhere in between! A real Sailboat Salt Life Experience!
Hurricane update: the cabin and cockpit and deck are unaffected, however there is some exterior, and cosmetic scrapes and damage. none of this will effect your stay. We are happy she made it and will be doing the work needed to bring her back to mint condition all the way around as soon as we can. All systems are functional and only some scratches on the outside to be addressed.
You will have access to all the living areas, cockpit front and back deck for sunbathing and rear swim platform of the boat, You will be able to swim and snorkel and enjoy the sunrise and or sunset from the best view of the harbor.
