Stock Island house boat description

Nestled in the heart of Stock Island is the Blue Marlin, the newest addition to our fleet of boatels.
The Blue Marlin is a 1 bedroom, 1 bath floating house located at Stock Island Marina Village. With direct access to the Atlantic Ocean, it's the perfect way to experience Key West by water. Bring your boat and tie up to the Blue Marlin, or just enjoy the ocean breeze from the deck. The houseboat is brand new and has been outfitted with new furnishings and artwork. You will find the boatel stocked with kitchenware, dishes, luxury towels and linens. Conveniently located on the property is our fitness center, Dog Park and the Shrimp Road Grill. As an added convenience you will also have access to our laundry facilities, downtown/grocery shuttle and Ship’s Store. Enjoy all the comforts of home with the atmosphere of maritime living!
Stock Island is located just over the bridge from Key West, about a 15 minute ride to Duval Street. It's close enough to enjoy all the action of downtown but relax in a more laid back atmosphere. Stock Island Marina Village is home to a colorful and friendly array of live-aboard residents and commercial fishermen, giving you a unique 'Old Key West' feel.

                  Year Purchased: 2014

                  Why Stock Island:
                  In 2007, the New York Times said, “The real Key West, It’s not even located on Key West proper anymore, but just over the Cow Key Channel Bridge, on the even tinier Stock Island.” Home to a diverse group of residents and business (and boats), Stock Island is a little quieter than its neighbor Key West, but still close enough to experience all Key West has to offer. Named after the livestock that used to call it home, Stock Island has a unique commercial history. The docks that currently house the Green Turtle were once lined with hundreds of fishing and shrimping vessels. With easy access to the Atlantic Ocean, proximity to Key West, and old island culture, Stock Island’s a great place to relax and experience the Florida Keys!
