I always tell people, "If you're not on the water in the Keys, then you're not enjoying the Keys!". Make your visit to the Florida Keys both memorable and unique by staying on this beautiful classic sailboat on the water.

The space
This beautiful classic Watkins 27 sailboat is the perfect way to experience the Florida Keys! Enjoy the evening watching the sunset from your private boat out in the harbor, the night gazing up at the stars and the morning watching the sun paint the sky across the water. To make your trip even better, be sure to ask about extra activities that are available such as snorkeling, sunset sails and sand bar, remote island and fishing excursions!

This boat does not have a cook-in kitchen but there is a sink and counter space as well as an ice box built into the counter. There is no shower on board but there are free public showers on the other side of the island at Higgs Beach or you can purchase them from Key West Bight Marina. Toilet paper and trash bags are also provided, as well as bed linens and pillows, but be sure to bring towels with you. Be sure to bring your USB cables to charge your devices as there are only USB ports to charge with, no standard power outlets.

This boat is compact! Large-sized people may find this to be an uncomfortable stay so please be advised. There is a V-berth that can sleep 2 and there are 2 couches on either side of the boat as well.

Space on a boat is limited so you'll want to only bring the necessities with you, such as medication, swim wear, toothbrush, hair brush, etc.. Simply put, don't try to bring all your luggage or you'll end up wishing you hadn't!


- You will be required to sign a written agreement to rent this vessel when you check in. See the House Rules section for details.

- This boat is anchored out in the harbor and requires a boat ride to get to. Just like at traditional hotel, your transportation expense to get there is up to you, however, in order to optimize my schedule, I incentivize guests by offering to pay for their ride to and from the boat between 5pm-6pm at night and 9am-10am in the morning. This is NOT part of the lodging accommodation price, it is a way for me to buy time and it is therefore not flexible. Outside of these hours you can purchase rides from the local water taxi between the hours of 9:00 am and 10:00 pm for $15/person with a 2 person minimum charge. All ride requests must be scheduled in advance and times are subject to availability. If you miss your scheduled ride time then you will have to wait for the next available slot and possibly forfeit your free ride. If you miss the window of operating time for the water taxi (10:00 pm), you will need to find another way out to the boat. If you need to get to shore before rides begin in the morning, you will need to make other arrangements to do so. This water taxi service is an independent business and is not affiliated with AirBnB or its hosts.

-In the event of a circumstance in which the boat you reserved is unavailable for use, I reserve the right to substitute another boat which meets or exceeds the amenities of the listing. If no substitute can be found, you will be entitled to a full refund.
