About the Property

Yacht, 4 Bedrooms , 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The Dancing Girls is a large luxurious sail catamaran manufactured by famed European builder of racing catamarans, Fountaine Pajot. She is 50’ in length and of new design with many innovative new features such as the hard davit cover that makes into a day bed and the companionway leading to the bridge pilot station. She is a fast cruiser with a rated speed of 12 knots on a broad reach. The Dancing Girls was sailed across the Atlantic on her initial voyage from La Rochelle, France, to Annapolis, MD, proving her reliability as a blue water cruiser. She is unmatched in beauty and modern convenience.

The galley appliances include a combination microwave, convection oven and grill, a gas range, blender, Panini grill, toaster, bread maker, cappuccino / espresso machine. The galley is stocked with the cooking utensils expected in a gourmet kitchen which are complimented by an icemaker, refrigerator and freezer, two basin sink, wine storage cabinet. The two level galley counter is very convenient for serving guests as a bar or food service counter. The main salon dining table comfortably seats 8. Outside, there is a Magma Gourmet Series propane grill on the back deck and another large outdoor table providing seating for 8 and a combination refrigerator / freezer.

The Dancing Girls is equipped with state of the art electronics including 55” flat screen TV with 5.1 surround sound system, blue ray disc player, Comcast cable TV. Audio features include XM satellite radio, separate inside and outside sound systems with digital player interface.

There are four double cabins, two v-birth cabins and a pipe berth cabin. The four double cabins have private head, shower and sink. The trampoline and davit cover day bed also make for great outdoor overnight accommodations when the weather is right.

Wen booked as a Yacht Club Charter , the guests have access to all the amenities of the Key West Harbour Yacht Club which is the premier Marina in the Keys. Guests onboard are entitled to all the amenities of the Yacht Club, including waterside pool, beach, fitness center, gourmet restaurant, free kayaks, Tiki hut and gazebo. The yacht club is only 15 minutes from Duval street and can be reached by bicycle or scooter as easily as with a car. When booked as a Sail Charter, we provide the Captain and Mate which run the vessel and dinghies, dive gear and navigational electronics. You can participate in as much or as little of the sailing as you like. We can sail to any destination you like, depending on the weather.

The rate for sailing trips is $1,500 per night for a minimum of three nights. Any amount paid toward the “at the dock” stay is applied as a credit toward the out island sailing rates. The nightly rate is determined in increments of 24 hours such that each 24 hours counts or as a night. For example, from 25 to 48 hours counts as 2 nights, 49 to 72 counts as 3 nights, and so on. The maximum number of people for “at the dock” charter is 8. For an out island charter, the maximum is 6 which is a US Coast Guard requirement. These guest loading maximums are not negotiable.

The sail plan includes a fully battened mainsail in lazy jacks, a roller furling jib and an asymmetrical spinnaker. She has two dinghies depending on the cruise plan. The first, primary dinghy is an 18’ center console fiberglass Mako with a 90hp 4-stroke Mercury outboard, also fully rigged with GPS, live well and dive supplies. For longer passage making she utilizes a 12’ Caribe dinghy with a 20hp, 4-stroke Mercury outboard rigged with running lights and oars. The Mako has a gas powered commercial air compressor with hookah rig with 200’ line and 4 line octopus. Rigged with wind and solar power generators (60 amp combined) and water maker to reduce trips into port for fuel and water, the dual helm allows operation from the salon or the bridge.

Navigation electronics include a dual helm Furuno Navnet 3D system with GPS and inertial positioning, raster and vector charts, high definition fish finder, satellite weather, digital radar, Wi-Fi internet, autopilot and multifunction wind, depth, speed and sail navigational instruments. The navigational instruments can be controlled from the upper or lower helm. Displays can be switched between on board PC display, Furuno navigational display or viewing of entertainment in full or split screen.

Owner info

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 Stock Island, Key West, FL, USA:
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.
