About the property

Historic Luxury Yacht with 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and right on Lake Union!

M/Y Linmar is a historic and fully-restored classic wooden motor yacht, with teak exterior and genuine mahogany interior. Eight (8) guests sleep comfortably in four (4) double-occupancy staterooms (3 queen bedrooms and 1 twin bunk room). Onboard are 2.5 bathrooms, a modern galley/kitchen, two dining areas, and a comfortable main salon.

Linmar suffered an unfortunate fire in 2005, leaving her a charred and blackened mess. She has since been gutted and rebuilt from stem to stern, complete with new systems, an updated layout, and modern touches throughout. She still holds the look and feel of an 80 year old classic, but with new construction that allows our guests to relax in comfort.

Linmar's close proximity to Seattle attractions make it a unique and memorable location for your next stay! Linmar is a offers single- and multi-day luxury charters around Seattle and throughout the Puget Sound. While not otherwise engaged in private charter, Linmar functions dockside as a VRBO.

Unique experience!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay on M/Y Linmar. It is beautifully restored and decorated. Everything you need is provided. As mentioned in other reviews, the yacht is docked very close to a heavily traveled highway. The weather was warm, so we needed to sleep with the windows open. Ear plugs were helpful for sleeping. That said, the noise did not negatively impact or overall experience. I would highly recommend for anyone staying in Seattle!

We were in Seattle for our son's wedding and wanted a memorable place to stay...this went above and beyond memorable! It was amazing, from the spacious living space including a large dining room, living room and front enclosed eating area to the roomy 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you need, great organization and plenty of frig and freezer space.

We loved the view and enjoyed watching all the boats go by. Easy access to cafe's and restaurants, short ride to the city. I would highly recommend The Linmar Yacht and plan on visiting there again!!

A family memory that will last forever.

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a unique venue for the family to gather and couldn't have found a better place to stay. The atmosphere, history, vintage yacht was everything we had hoped for. The management group, captain, crew and total experience was excellent. Don't hesitate to make this lasting memory one of your own.

Certainly a great memory!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time and loved our experience. Watching the boats-large and small-, the kayaks and the rowers pass by was both serene and exciting! Everything on the boat, including our check in staff, was to notch. will certainly hope to do this again!

Everything was exactly as represented with no surprises. That is to say, classically perfect.

  • 5 of 5

The boat was beautifully furnished and nicely appointed with everything that guests would need. Also immaculately clean. We never had occasion to contact the Property Manager but felt that if we had, they would be very responsive. We particularly enjoyed the 1930's look and feel of the boat and the beautiful dining salon. The property is a first class operation in every way and I would not hesitate to recommend it to others and hopefully return ourselves.

Great boat, well maintained, not the greatest location

  • 4 of 5

The boat was beautiful and exactly as it looks in the pictures. The ladies who checked us in were wonderful and helpful. They even emailed to let us know in advance that there was a bike race the day we were leaving so we needed to be mindful of our departure time. I would happily have given 5 stars if the location of the boat was better. As others have mentioned the boat is moored right below an I 5 overpass. It is really loud. It does get better at night and on the weekends but if you plan on having your windows open then entire time, like we did, the noise will have an impact on your enjoyment of the boat. If you plan to take the boat out sailing or you are extremely heavy sleepers then maybe it won't be a problem for you. It really is a fantastic vessel and we would definitely go back again if it were moored in a different location.
