Try something a little different. Luxury boat living at a middle class price.
This is a beautiful boat. Try sleeping on a luxury yacht on a middle class budget.
43' Luxury Charter Boat in nice small quaint marina. Like the old Key West with a real working waterfront. Alongside a great seafood restaurant. This property is 4.5 miles from old town Key West and only one mile from the city limits. We are off the beaten path and some people come back and stay here without going back into town. Marina tenants include artists of all kinds and their work appears throughout the marina. There is live entertainment Fridays and Saturdays in the restaurant but the music stops at 9:30. After all we are a live aboard marina. You cannot hear anything inside the yacht but it is very pleasant sitting out on the back deck when the music is playing in the distance.
The yacht has 4 staterooms and 2 baths with up to 2 beds in each room. So a total of six guests can sleep in 4 private rooms. This is a private rental however so you will be the only party onboard. The master stateroom rate is 175 per night in off season. I have a 2 night minimum and if you only have 2 in your party you are assigned the master stateroom at that rate but there is a 3 night minimum for a party of 2.
I also have a very nice studio apartment in this marina if the dates on the yacht are filled.
THESE ARE BOTH NON SMOKING PROPERTIES.

About Andy Griffiths
I have lived in this area for 47 years. I started Andy Griffiths Charters ( in 1985. I can recommend restaurants, fishing guides and things to do during your visit to Key West and the Lower Keys. I belong to every chamber of commerce in the Florida Keys and I serve on several non profit boards.
Andy Griffiths purchased this Yacht in 2007
Why Andy Griffiths chose Stock Island
I rebuilt the yacht from a working charter fishing boat. I always wanted a yacht so I set out to turn my former work boat into a yacht. Renting out the boat pays for the renovation and gives me the opportunity to spend time on the boat when she is available. I enjoy meeting new people and giving them a great deal on their vacation. I own the slip where the Yacht is berthed so my overhead is low. I have enjoyed designing this yacht and I feel a pride when walking the docks. THIS IS A NON SMOKING PROPERTY. I also have a very nice studio apartment in this marina if the yacht is booked.
What makes this Yacht unique
My wife and I will enjoy happy hour on the back deck on occasion when the yacht is available. If we do, so will you! Wine and some snacks and we are loving it. Lunch or dinner is just steps away at the very popular hogfish bar and grill. The hogfish has a great local following as well as many visitors who can actually find it. I use my studio as an office and poker room when not rented out. It is a great back up when the yacht is booked. THIS IS A NON SMOKING PROPERTY.

This yacht near the Hogfish Bar & Grill was perfect for our stay in Key West. We decided to elope and being able to get away from the hustle and bustle of Duval St after our wedding on a sailboat was so nice. Andy was very responsive to any questions we had and answered immediately. We'll definitely be staying again.!!
Beautiful boat, Great location, super clean, comfty beds ect! Just a Nice place to stay, and somthing Else!
I would have to say this was one of the best experiences me and my husband have had. Andy was wonderful. He checked to make sure we got in okay and to see if we needed anything. The boat is beautiful very clean and well appointed for anything you would need. The people around the boat were very friendly and Hogfish is a great place to eat and just hang out. You can walk right off the boat and a few steps and you are there. We sat at the top of the boat and had beautiful views. This was our first time staying on a boat and it was perfect. If you are looking for a wonderful and beautiful experience please book this rental you will not be disappointed.
The boat was extremely clean. Like new condition.
The boat was exactly as advertised. Extremely clean. It met our needs perfectly! Andy was very quick to respond to the couple questions we had when we checked in. We would definitely recommend this property as a great place to stay while visiting Key West!
An amazing experience!
The yacht was beautiful and immaculate, pics don't do it justice, more spacious than it appears outside too. Located at a very nice, cozy marina, where the sunsets are breath taking. "If" a problem arises, Andy takes care of it immediately, he's an awesome guy. Spent the entire month of February here and didn't want to leave. You'll feel like home just walking in. Love it, coming back next Feb.
Excellent alternative to a hotel
Tired of hotels and want a new experience? This is definitely a great alternative! The boat was very clean and well maintained. It had all of the amenities that a hotel would have for our stay. You did not feel much rocking or even hear much noise, while inside of the boat. It was nice and relaxing, especially drinking your morning cup of coffee to start your day with a beautiful view. Hogfish Bar and Grill is right there for lunch and dinner, as well as, other nice establishments in walking distance. The boat house was quite sufficient for showering...water pressure was great and always had hot water. Locals were very nice and offered great recommendations. I would recommend that you rent a car, if you plan on venturing downtown or to Olde Town Key West quite frequently versus a taxi cab, but still a nice distance to even rent a bicycle to get around. Andy was very friendly and was easy to reach with any questions or concerns. If we travel to Key West again, we will be using this accommodation versus a hotel!
Thank you again Andy!
