About this listing
Live aboard a beautiful 38' Sabre sailboat in a sheltered harbour in Bermuda! You will have the whole boat to yourself and will be located right in the middle of the historic Royal Naval Dockyard. There are restaurants, pubs, a shopping centre, the National Museum, mini-golf, a beach and much more literally within throwing distance or a five minute walk maximum. Buses to the famous beaches stop right outside the dock gate and the ferries to Hamilton and St Georges are here too!
Please be aware that living on a boat is not the same as staying in a house or apartment: it is a bit of an adventure! The first thing you will notice is the marine toilet - this is brand new and works perfectly but it flushes differently. However, instructions are posted and easy to follow - you will get the hang of it very quickly. Also, the water pressure for the shower comes from a small pump on board so will not be as strong as you are probably used to ashore - but again, it works fine. There is also a men's and women's shower on shore at the marina that you can use. The space below is small but it really is all a couple need. Be aware that if you bring big suitcases it may be difficult to find a space to stow them away! However, my wife and I have been living onboard for three years and we're still together! It's lovely to feel the boat rock gently and we're in a very sheltered harbour so it is never uncomfortable. You can sunbathe on deck or in the cockpit and swim right off the boat. We have a sunshade over the cockpit if it's too hot and A/C down below.
Guests will have the whole boat to themselves.
Interaction with guests
I will be away in Canada visiting family but my co-host Sue is living just two boats away from you on our dock. She and two other boats are the only live-aboards on the dock (the other boats are usually only used on weekends). The dock community is friendly but very respectful of privacy. You may hear some music in the distance from the bars and cruise ships here in Dockyard but we keep it very peaceful on the dock.
Boat may not leave the dock! Otherwise please be respectful of the privacy and rights of others in the marina. No loud music at anytime and quiet after 10 pm.
