Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: Florida native now retired. I spend a great deal of time in Key West on my yacht pursuing sailing to the out islands, fishing and enjoying the charm of Key West.
Why the Owner Chose Home Port: Key West: This is one of the most fabulous yachts in Key West with protected waters in a marina giving access to the Gulf and the Atlantic with the closest reef only 15 minutes south by boat. I love sailing to the out islands of Boca Chica a, the Marquesa Keys and the Dry Tortugas. The combination of a significant military presence and the safety of a United States City in the Caribbean with close access to reefs and with a day’s sail of the Tortugas make this the ideal vacation experience. It is the gateway to the tropics with the convenience of living in the USA.
The Unique Benefits at this Yacht: The real charm of staying on the Dancing Girls is to go cruising to the out islands. We generally make passage to Boca Grande and the Marquesas Keys or to the Dry Tortugas (Fort Jefferson) for longer charters. A trip like this is the experience of a lifetime and a great way to experience the best part of the keys.
