PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE LISTING THOROUGHLY. Looking for something different? Something unique? How about a liveaboard stay and experience a different style of vacation. Natural beauty, some say it's like camping on water, yet you'll have most of the comforts provided as if you were staying on land. Shops, bars, restaurants, plus the night life will keep you entertained for hours at your door step..
S/V Nauti Kat is a spacious boat with plenty of room, but we only do couples.We will make some exceptions to allow extra guests but this must be approved before we accept your stay with us. The moment you walk down the dock and go aboard, you will notice that this is not your average vacation. An extremely unique experience for travelers to enjoy life on a liveaboard sailboat. The first thing you will probably notice is our unique colors, bright yellow & turquoise shining bright in basically an all white area. After arriving aboard S/V Nauti Kat, you will be welcomed aboard with a complementary cocktail as you meet your crew. Catamarans are very wide (20'+) sailboats, the interior is best described as two sides. The port side having the captains quarters & galley. The starboard side (guest side) has a spacious full size bed and is steps away from a full bathroom with running hot water & shower. The main salon equipped with satellite TV, flat screen TV & large table that seats 6 comfortably. A spacious cockpit with many seats and tables adds to the enjoyment as you gaze out at the water & see the amazing nightly sunset, & at times dolphins, sea turtles, manatees, a large variety of birds or even a sting ray.
Your crew: Captains Randy & Kathy Johnson, providing you with over 30 years experience
and are both USCG licensed Masters. We will be aboard our vessel any time we have
guest aboard to attend to our guests needs.
Your deckhands: Lexi & Gracie, our two lovable 8 year old chihuahua/dachshund dogs. They are the love of our lives and travel everywhere with us. Although they are very well behaved you will need to expect a dog sitting in your lap from time to time and perhaps a wet kiss now and then. Please note that the dogs have a full run of the boat except for the sleeping areas, they are not allowed in that area at any time.
Also keep in mind that S/V Nauti Kat is a fully licensed and insured charter boat so there will always be a CG licensed captain aboard to insure your safety. This should be of concern to those of you thinking about staying out on one of the Airbnb boats. Most of the other boats just drop you off and leave you on the boat by your self. If there is an emergency of any kind there is no one to help you. Aboard Nauti Kat we take everyone's safety very serious and are there to help no matter what comes up.
Guests will have access to their private sleeping quarters, the bathroom, cockpit and boat deck.
Interaction with guests:
This is most important for all of our guests, you must speak and understand
ENGLISH, this is for your safety.
Please keep in mind that S/V Nauti Kat is AT ANCHOR so it moves with the wind, tides and waves. We are in a protected bay but you will still feel movement. So if you are very sensitive to motion sickness or sea sickness this may not be for you.
Showers are provided aboard but fresh water is limited aboard. If you require long hot showers then this may not be for you. When washing and brushing your teeth the water can not be left running. Things that we take for granted living ashore like water, electricity, garbage and other services all have limits if wasted or misused.
Also remember that in order to get to our boat will require a dinghy ride. This will
require you to be in reasonable good shape requiring balance and strength hoisting
yourself in and out of the dinghy. Also we must limit our guest size to 250 lbs maximum
and reasonably fit to accommodate dinghy and vessel weight/size requirements.
