We are truly blessed to live in a place that offers so many wonderful venues to enjoy on the water. This gorgeous 80' yacht can't wait to take you there in comfort and style!
Conch Harbor Marina is only a short walk to Duval Street and all that Margaritaville has to offer. Just remember where you docked your 80' yacht after you blow out your flip flop!
One of our favorite getaways! While you're here, enjoy the pool, the poolside bar and restaurant and classic local entertainment. Snorkeling excursions aboard ShipsAhoy! are just part of the fun here in Marathon!
You'll swear you're in Bali. Little Palm Island Resort and Spa is America's only private island resort. Adults only, please... and thank you! Enjoy some of their pampering amenities while quartering aboard your own private yacht.
Welcome to the Emerald Coast! Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort has it all, and guests at the Baytowne Marina are welcome to join in. Additional fees may apply for dining, shopping, zip-lining, a round of golf, etc.
Just 70 miles west of Key West lies historic Fort Jefferson and some really amazing snorkeling! ShipsAhoy! would love to take you there.

Food is not included in this pricing, but we'll be happy to discuss your options for that and several other available amenities which you may desire.
