Bainbridge Island boat description

Welcome aboard our 44-foot sailing vessel 'Oh Joy II' docked on beautiful Bainbridge Island! Just steps away from amazing restaurants, pubs, bakeries, shops, galleries,bookstores and bike and kayak rentals in quaint downtown Winslow. Just a 30-minute ferry ride to the downtown Seattle waterfront! Perfect for one or two couples.

Amenities:

Nestle into two private double staterooms, bathroom with separate shower, full galley (kitchen) with oven, stove, refrigerator, freezer, coffee-maker and microwave, dining and sitting area with gas fireplace and a view that will tingle your tingle-able parts. The large, comfortable cockpit is perfect for outdoor dining, lounging, snoozing, schmoozing, bird-watching, fish-stalking, star-gazing, seal-sighting and general all-around nirvana-ing. (Somebody say 'ahoy!)

Sail Packages:

You can view the full range of available sailing packages at our site: DreamboatAdventureSailing.com

Island fun!:

You don't have to spend all of your time in Seattle. The island has plenty to offer, on a quieter, more laid-back scale. Restaurants, pubs, cafes and coffee houses are mere steps from the marina. (Literally, like maybe 2 dozen steps.) Wander a block or so further and you'll be in the center of our quaint little island town with world-class restaurants, boutiques, bakeries, coffee shops, bookstores, galleries, jewelers, movie theaters, free concerts in the park and a Saturday Farmer's Market in the summer, and our new art museum. Kayak and stand-up paddle board rentals are right next door. And bike rentals are only 2 blocks away.

For those on foot or bike:

Oh Joy II is only a few blocks from the Bainbridge Ferry Terminal and even closer to the rest of Winslow. Access from Sea-Tac airport is as easy as taking the light rail into downtown Seattle's University Street Station, strolling to the ferry dock a few blocks away and taking the short trip to Bainbridge Island. Once on the island you can amble through the waterfront park right to the dock where Oh Joy II will be waiting for you. (She'll be excited, but she'll calm down if you scratch her behind the mast.)

For those with wheels:

If you're driving, free parking is adjacent to the marina.

What to expect when you arrive:

We'll meet you at the marina to help you settle in for your stay, explain the mysteries of the marine toilet and answer your questions. Then we'll get out of your hair. (But we're only 10 minutes away, so we're ready to assist you with whatever you may need.)

Did we mention sailing?::

Not to belabor the point, but a sail on beautiful Puget Sound is not to be missed. If you're interested in adding sailing excursions to your trip just let us know. Oh Joy II is a very comfortable and capable ocean-going sailboat and we offer day sails, sunset sails (includes appetizers and bubbly) and over-night trips from 1 night to 2 full weeks.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: Harry is a US Coast Guard licensed Master and Merchant Marine Officer with more than 40 years experience sailing the Pacific, Caribbean and Salish Sea. He is also freelance writer and creative director, a mediocre guitar-er, curry fiend and a sea-faring hobo-sapien. Joy is a professional writer and semi-full-time bloger-ette. Currently she writes for Bing and blogs for her gluttonous gluten free fans at Feast of Joy Blog. (Google it!) Joy is a master chef, gluten-free maven and dessert demon. She is an accomplished open water and masters swimmer and she is purported to be occasionally funny.

                  Why the Owner Chose Bainbridge Island:
                  We're sailors. Blue water, ocean sailors. And Oh JoyII is designed specifically to sail off shore, in luxury. Her solid teak joinery with its hand-rubbed varnish and warm, tropical grain hails from a different era. In fact, it isn't available anymore, at any price. But she carries this luxury with understated grace and style. Oh Joy II's saloon is warm and comfortable and filled with natural light, with the added comfort of a gas fireplace for chilly northwest evenings. Her galley is complete, with double stainless steel sinks, refrigerator and freezer, three-burner gas range and oven, microwave, coffee maker and storage for enough provisions to satisfy even the most ravenous crew. Two private, well-appointed double staterooms offer complete comfort. And the head (bathroom) is roomy, bright and has a separate shower complete with hot water and a built-in teak bench seat. Carrying 900 square feet of sail, Oh Joy II can get up and go. She is the definition of the proper off-shore sailing yacht and is built to Lloyds +100 A1 specs. She is one of the finest cruising yachts on the water today.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Boat:
                  If you've never slept on the water, you've missed one of life's great natural tranquilizers, but be careful, there is a danger of on overdose and when that happens, you're hooked. Whether you stay at the dock or take advantage of our 'Anchor Out' option, you'll love the warm and bright cocoon that is Oh Joy II. In addition, we offer private sails, 3 hours to full day sails, sunset sails, overnights and even longer excursions. Go to Dreamboat Adventure Sailing to learn more about our sail offerings.
