About the property

The adventure of a lifetime awaits your family on this historic vessel.

For your next family trip to the beach, consider an experience your family will NEVER forget! Stay on a yacht… not in a condo! Emmanuel has an amazing history and your family can become a part of it. This yacht has been around the world and you’ll be able to feel the history in every nook and cranny. If you like the beach, you’ll love experiencing it from a different perspective. At beautiful, historic St. Andrews Marina, you will experience the most amazing sunsets ever.

Emmanuel is a 47' Olympic Adventure Ketch Rigged Sailboat. It was built in Greece in 1975 and has been around the world. Emmanuel works for 12 weeks each year in a Christian ministry called Anathallo (Greek word meaning to re-bloom, regenerate or renew). This boat serves ministers and their wives who need a break from the pressures of ministry. For a week they are treated like royalty and their only mission is to reconnect with the beauty of God's creation. By renting Emmanuel for your stay, you're helping us offer the service to ministers and their wives at no charge.

But staying on a Yacht certainly isn’t for everybody. If mobility is a problem, you might want to remain a land lover. These are real, working yachts. For a certain portion of every year, they’re sailing through the Caribbean. They look like boats. They feel like boats. And they smell like boats! For a week, your family will live the lives of sailors.

Short showers, learning to use marine heads (toilets), learning a brand new flowery language, learning the etymology of many popular phrases, eating sailorly breakfasts… But don’t worry… if you’re up for adventure and appreciate history, you’ll love our vessels.

Each of our yachts come equipped with everything you’ll need to “survive” the week. Air conditioning (while we’re docked), private staterooms and heads, Cable television and wifi (at the dock), a well equipped galley (kitchen).

The marina store has laundry facilities and showers, should you fail to enjoy showering on Emmanuel. Sailors usually take very short showers in conservation of water... so it you're a long shower type, you might prefer the very clean and secure shower house.

About Seth Chandler

Avid sailor, skier and now scuba diver, I love traveling and work in an industry that encourages it. We're delighted that you're looking at our vessel as a possible adventurous vacation and would love it even more if you decided to go out on a sailing excursion (extra money, of course)!

Why Seth Chandler chose Panama City

Emmanuel is part of a very interesting ministry... Anathallo is a greek word meaning to renew, re-bloom and to begin again. For twelve weeks each year, we treat ministers and their spouses to a weeklong sailing adventure at no charge. To help cover the costs of this ministry, we offer our vessel to you and your family for an amazing vacation on the water. Sure, you could rent another condo, but why not rent an adventure?

What makes this yacht unique

Emmanuel has three staterooms and sleeps 5 very comfortably. It also boasts two private heads and a fully equipped galley (kitchen). But remember, this is a working yacht that has traveled over many of the world's oceans. It looks like a boat, feels like a boat and smells like a boat! The heads and showers work differently than a typical condo, as this vessel has to be able to survive at sea for weeks on end without additional power. We can talk about all these unique attributes of sailboats whenever you want. Just give us a call or drop us a line!
