You will staying in the master stateroom aboard a 47' world cruising sailboat! The yacht is located at the Nantucket Boat Basin with shops, museums, and fine dining just steps away! Additionally, there is a forward cabin (V-Berth) with room for two more guests.
This sailboat completed a circumnavigation two years ago. Experience the style and ambiance of a world cruiser, while staying in one the premier boating centers of the US.
Cozy, and comfortable, you can hear the wind in the rigging, and gentle waves rocking you to sleep. The main salon is light filled, with space to work on a laptop, or socialize.

On deck, there is a cockpit with sun protection, and a large area forward that is good for lounging in the sun. Aft, there is a swim ladder, and on deck fresh water shower.

I love life on the water, have lived on sailboats for many years, either for extended summers, or year round. Started sailing at the age of 7, later worked on a research vessel for Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (have a few stories to tell, if guests are interested). I've built boats, and delivered boats from Maine to Florida. For the past 18 years I've been based on Nantucket. It is a wonderful place, where nature is close, the town is charming, and the waters surrounding the island are ever changing, and beautiful!
I'm a romantic at heart, it appears that most of my favorite movies are romances, #1 being "Cinema Paradiso". Reading is a passion, particularly accounts of sea travel, or natural history (I was a science teacher for 8 years). A few years ago I traveled to New Zealand, bought a 4-wheel drive minivan, and cruised around, fishing, and sightseeing. Definitely recommend the place!
My next goal is to get UNICORN ready for a trip down to the US and British Virgin Islands.
