39 Ft Sea Ray at a Pretty Marina
ne 69 street, 33138 Miami
Try something really different on your next vacation, live aboard a 1983 39ft SeaRay! The yacht is parked at a beautiful marina with lush landscaping, and is located in the artsy, Upper East Side of North Miami. Watch the dolphins frolic in the bay and lethargic manatees float by. Sunset/ sunrise takes on many beautiful canvases.
About living on a boat:
You are more in tune with the elements than when you are insulated by a house. The water rocks gently (it's a bay not open ocean so there are never high foot seas). The living room has a partial glass ceiling so you can watch the rain fall overhead (totally romantic, you have a better chance of seeing it during the summer months in Florida). You hop on and off the boat from a dock. As the tide changes your hop can be tiny or more noticeable. Around a full moon your hop becomes more of a climb on to the boat so please take this in to consideration! There are skid proof strips and a safety handrail for your protection. If you choose to sleep with the windows open the stars are right up above you and the bay breeze brushes your face. Spend a couple hours sleeping on the bow or stern and you'll appreciate the beauty of the outdoors. It truly is an experience to try at least once in your lifetime!
About the boat & the marina:
The main room has a private bedroom with an extremely comfortable bed which is decorated with fresh linens and sleeps 2 people. Port windows provide a calming water view. The side room has bunk beds that sleep 2 people (but we recommend only one on the lower bunk bed) and the living room has a convertible couch which extends to sleep 2. The boat sleeps 6 people but for your comfort max 2 will be allowed. There is a new, flat screened TV with cable included and DVD player in the living room. The bow is great for sunning and the aft comfortably seats 10 people. The kitchen has a microwave, refrigerator, sink & stove. It is equipped with plates, cups, silverware, glasses, coffee maker etc. There are brand new T-top covers on the boat so that you can sit outdoors and still be in the shade, or thick comfy seats for getting sun.
The boat has a tiny shower but the tank fills quickly and can create a soaking wet floor so we ask that you please use the marina shower and pool facilities that are footsteps away from the boat, near the lovely pool area. There is a hair dryer and clothes iron on board. There is a toilet on the boat and an additional bathrooms are located by the marina entrance and pool area (3 minute walk).
There is free wifi access on the boat ( the router is near the boat so the speed is great) and there is wifi throughout parts of the marina. The captain's lounge has ethernet access.
There is a coin operated Washer/Dryer at the marina, near the dockmaster's office.
Pool, hot tub, tree top style small gym, barbeque grills, tennis courts, bright pink bougainvillea plants, exotic landscaping and huge bay views are some of the nice perks for total relaxation.
The marina entrance has a card access security gate. There is a dockmaster during the day and a guard at the community gate.

About the neighborhood:
The boat is situated in a safe, private, gated condominium community with complimentary parking for marina visitors & residents. The neighborhood is Historic Bayside in the Upper Eastside. Many homes here date to the Roaring Twenties, a time when Carl Fisher famously hung a winter sign in Times Square New York saying it was "June in Miami." He sparked Florida's housing boom and the growth of a city that has so much to offer. The residents are a diverse group of artists, photographers, journalists, start-ups and writers. The marina is a short walk to one of Miami's top restaurants- Michelle Bernstein's Michy's and edgy, Upper EastSide boutiques such as Rebel. The marina is less than 10 minutes from Design District restaurants such as Michael's Genuine, Mandolin Aegan Bistro, and Sugar Cane. It is also a short drive to luxury clothing shops in the Design District, eclectic art galleries and the fabulous Wynwood Walls. The boat is located a quick 15 minutes from South Beach.
