Stay Aboard Our 40-Foot Private Sailing Yacht w/ 2 Cabins — private slip & AC!

Family fun at the shore
Welcome Aboard! Our beautifully spacious 40-foot sailboat will be a unique, salt-life experience to remember! She's got 2 cabins and is docked in our private marina w/ electricity, AC/heat, kitchen & more. You'll have access to amazing sunrises and sunsets, kayak, marina and walking access to beach, beach supplies, etc. Sailing charter options discussed after booking for additional fee (Sunset or 1/2 day sailing trips are $499; full day sailing trips are $649). Ideal for couples, small family (5 max). PETS approved case-by-case basis for extra fee.
We’ve thought of everything to ensure your stay will be a “salt life” experience to remember forever.

Virtual tour:

Our yacht is literally a floating house with dozens of amenities. Relax outside to gorgeous sunset and sunrise views - sailing charters available too for additional fee. ($499 for 1/2 day or sunset sailing trips and $699 for full day sailing trips). Sailing is always weather dependent and a $150 deposit is required to guarantee availability. We do not allow last-minute cancellations unless the weather forecast is thunderstorms. Deposits are returned in that case. You can also rent jet skis and golf carts.

Inside and out, our yacht will be above and beyond what any hotel, condo or house can come close to. She's securely docked in a slip with “shore power” (i.e. full electricity), air conditioning (2 units), heating, kitchen with dual sinks, hot/cold filtered water, refrigerator, freezer, pantry storage, ice maker, microwave, coffee maker, electric skillet, sleeping quarters (up to 5!), bathroom, living room, television, couches, linens and towels, beach supplies, fishing poles, kayak, and much more!

Unlike other boats which are anchored out in the choppy water and you need a dinghy vessel to transport you everywhere, our yacht is secure in the slip, spaciously comfortable inside, a short walk or drive to public beach access, and is safely accessible in the marina and surrounding town area.

Yacht amenities:
* She has two(2) cabins (“forward” and “aft” cabin) which can comfortably sleep two(2) people in each as well as a queen-sized mattress in the living room. Altogether, she can comfortably sleep up to five(5) people total on the inside alone! When the stars are out at evening, I encourage you to sleep on deck amongst the stars. The deck cushions we provide are excellent mattresses and we have plenty of blankets.

* Our yacht galley (kitchen) offers a dual sink, filtered hot and cold water, kitchenware and plates/cups, refrigerator, freezer, icemaker, cabinet storage for your food pantry items, coffee maker, microwave, toaster, George Foreman grill, electric skillet and BBQ grill. You’ll have everything you need to keep and prepare food whether it’s a 2-3 night stay or a week long experience!

* A head (bathroom) with complimentary toiletries, shower supplies, etc. (see notes at bottom)

* There are eight(8) opening port-holes and three(3) hatches that provide plenty of fresh ocean breeze!

* There are storage cubbies and a closet for all your luggage.
* Television, DVD player, radio, card games and plenty of books to keep you relaxed.

* Immediately upon going down below you’ll be amazed by the spectacular custom teak interior throughout the boat. We feel the teak alone sets this vessel far apart from other cheaply built production boats! Also, you'll see how spacious she is with plenty of storage all around.

* Also on the boat you can take advantage of our kayak, fishing poles, fishing equipment, casting nets, beach chairs, beach equipment, beach toys, floats, boogie boards, kites, and so much more. We have allocated one of the bathrooms to be for beach storage as well as a dock patio chair with internal storage for more beach supplies.

* On deck of the yacht, the cockpit is extremely spacious and this is where you'll enjoy the sunset and sunrise views! We've added a private table that you can enjoy a meal and/or drinks while relaxing and appreciating the sound of the water and birds flying by.

Our marina provides even more amenities:
* Short walk or drive to the beach!
* Laundry
* Free showers and bathrooms
* BBQ grill
* Free parking (decal provided & required)
* Marina store providing ice, beer, water, small snacks and various supplies
* The marina is a short walk, bike, car or Uber ride to the Carolina Beach pier, the Carolina Beach boardwalk, and dozens of bars and restaurants.

We'll have the yacht professionally cleaned and awaiting your arrival! Self-check in.

We live a few hours away in Raleigh, NC but we have several people onsite who can be available as needed.

Important notes:
* Sailing charters can be added for additional fee and can include a 1/2 day cruise(499), full day ocean cruise(649), and evening cruise(449). See welcome letter for details and options. All sailing is weather dependent as well.

* Starting the yacht engine or taking the boat out is not permitted.

* PETS: Pets must be approved and are a case-by-case basis. We love pets and have 2 cats and 2 dogs ourselves; however we do not bring them with us to the boat due to extra cleaning, wear and tear on the
boat, and barking at the marina. If you are requesting to bring your furrbaby, you must inquire. We normally approve SMALLER, NON-SHEDDING pets for a nominal $35 fee. Dogs that shed and larger breeds are usually not approved UNLESS you agree to more strict cleaning terms including a $75 cleaning fee and $250 deposit. We've had issues in the past with dog hair all over our couches, floors, and on top deck which
requires a double cleaning. So please inquire about bringing your pet(s) BEFORE booking. We appreciate your understanding.

* Instead of hard luggage suitcases, bring soft luggage bags.

* Heavy drinking is not permitted onboard. Safety is essential and we ask all guests to act responsibly. You are responsible for own safety onboard and on the dock..

* Please be courteous of your volume while on deck. Voices and music carry over water.

* We prefer guests to use the marina facilities for the restroom/shower rather than onboard. We do have an onboard toilet though. Waste and water is pumped into an onboard holding container so it makes sense to minimize this as much as possible! We’re only a few steps away from the marina facilities. Contact me to inquire about this further.

* Shower and restroom facilities are common use areas at the marina where marina boaters and transient boats passing by use as well. Therefore, please understand and be aware that cleanliness is beyond our control.
Air-conditioned accommodation at this houseboat offers DVD players and coffee/tea makers. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and separate dining areas.

2/5 Poor

What it is knot
short stay 9/2021- view from boat is pretty, marina quiet, but the A/C was very insufficient everywhere in the cabin other than one bedroom bunk, where it is very loud. There was a heavy mildew smell in the whole cabin which remained on our clothes -wireless was showing available but wouldn't accept the pw- owner suggested we use hotspot-our plan doesn't include it but a booster on the boat would help. Having to use the marina BR in the middle of the night while navigating a slippery dock/boat wasn't pleasant- we left a day/night early when A/C and smell couldn't be remedied- had tried suggestions in notebook- In the cooler season when the cabin area can be opened up to fresh air, it would likely have been a nicer experience but for us, in the heat and humidity, a Carolina Beach hotel room would have been less expensive and far more comfortable

5/5 Excellent

Great Stay!
What a unique experience--I mean, how many people can say they've stayed on a sailboat?! Kevin was a great communicator and answered all of our questions promptly and knowledgeably.
