Swimming off the back of the boat in this warm weather is a great way to cool off and start or end your day. The water is just cool enough to make it interesting and refreshing for the first few minutes! Then breakfast in the cockpit with a good pitcher of just pressed hot coffee, toasted bagels and croissants with jam and maybe some fruit on the side. Then off to shore to explore all Nantucket has to offer...a short launch ride lands you on Straight Wharf, the downtown marina and Main St.

The space
June 24th 2020...Nantucket is up and running! It's not as busy as usual but its still beautiful and in some ways nicer if you like lots of peace and quiet.
Please NOTE! Since it confuses lot of people....the base price of $325 is for the master stateroom forward which can sleep up to 3 people (cozy though) If you need the 2nd cabin its an extra $125 a night. And yes I had to put up the cleaning fees because of the extra work cleaning.

Guest access
A large (by boat standards) double cabin, shower, cooking stove and refrigerator (shared) TV/DVD player, radio etc. Shared use of main salon and cockpit for eating, hanging out, etc. Shared in this case means with the owner, who is sometimes on board, not with other guests. Basically if you book the main cabin on the boat, you have the run of the boat and facilities. No other guests will be on the boat unless you invited them.

Other things to note
The visitors centre and the Chamber of Commerce both have a wealth of information about what to see and do on Nantucket. The water in summer is warm enough to swim in and guests have been known to jump off the back of the boat and get refreshed.

Location

Nantucket, Massachusetts, United States

The neighborhood is downtown Nantucket and all its attractions. There is always something going on close by. Its physically a very beautiful place full of shingled and brick buildings, amazingly well tended gardens hidden away on side streets and beautiful yachts and power boats in the harbor. Downtown Nantucket is very close to walk to either from the dock or the Harbor Launch, and is full of interesting shops and gourmet restaurants. Starlight Theater is reasonably priced good food and movies too. For more upscale dining there are dozen's of good restaurants, but its usually worth calling ahead to see how busy they are and if you need a reservation. Town and Queqegs restaurant are both close to the movie theater and library park and if you like fresh Sushi, Yoshi's restaurant is close by.

Love to travel! Enjoy meeting new people with local knowledge, exchanging views on current events, philosophy of life, new ideas. Sailor, cook, business owner. Hobbies Tai-chi, sailing, writing, skiing, traveling, yacht deliveries and good cooking.....not necessarily 'fine dining'. Enjoy a good glass of wine and the occasional Guinness. Have stayed in a wide range of places from luxurious to very plain; I'll take good company, conversation and simple surroundings over cold luxury any day of the week.

During your stay
If I'm on the boat I'll play it by ear as to how much my guests want to interact. The forward cabin gives guests privacy just to hang out and be alone if they choose. But boats are small intimate spaces so consideration for all on board is a must. Its also my home so please treat with respect. I love to meet new people and swap stories of places far and near over a glass of wine. But Nantucket has hundreds of things to do and visit so get out there and enjoy and use the boat as your base.
