À propos de ce logement
Live aboard an immaculate 42 foot Catalina sail boat during your visit to the fabled Florida Keys. Located at a quiet, cozy and well protected private marina with on-shore TIKI HUT and BBQ pit. Customized adventure list of things to do! Ultralow cleaning costs compared to others.
Northern Cross is a 42 ft Catalina located at Bluewaters Marina in Tavernier. The marina is privately owned with 19 boats many of which have permanent live-aboards providing real neighbourhood experience. You will have access to the whole boat and on-shore facilities. The TIKI hut is locally well known and hosts excellent BBQ facilities for your enjoyment. A real meeting place to share your stories at the end of the day. You will also have access to on-shore laundry/shower/washroom facilities. A very quiet and private setting where you can watch the tarpon and the occasional manatee from the cockpit. The boat has easy access with docks on both sides. There is an approx. 2.5 ft tide so you may have to step up a foot or so at high tide. The boat is fully air conditioned for your comfort. You will quickly find that the cockpit is the place to be where you can enjoy relaxing views of the harbor and all the "happenings".

Our manager, Paul, lives in the boat beside Northern Cross. He will greet you on your arrival, give you a tour of the boat and answer any questions you may have during your stay. Rick or Tony (co-owners) are also available any time by phone. Prior to your arrival we will provide you with a customized manual describing details of Northern Cross.
If you are interested, speak to Paul about local activities where he can independently act as your guide - fishing, kite sailing, paddling, skiff touring, day sailing cruises (on his boat), reef snorkeling, tennis are all good bets. We don't personally profit from any bookings you make with Paul. We just want you to have a good time.

Rick and Tony are co-owners of Northern Cross. Die-hard sailors, we each have our own sailboat for summer sailing on Lake Ontario but head down in various combinations of family and friends to the Florida Keys whenever possible in the winter. While neither of us are there we are happy to provide accommodations for other visitors to the Keys. Like you!
Our motto? Every day you spend on a boat extends your life by two more.
