Cruising in Sunny Florida – Our Winter Wonderland!

Got Snow? We don’t…..

Where in the world are Captains Chris & Alyse? Why Sunny Florida of course! January is completely booked for cruising aboard SANDY HOOK but there are still a few dates available before spring arrives. We hope to see many of you at the end of January. We are presenting Building Cruising Confidence As A Couple at TrawlerFest in Fort Lauderdale January 27-29. Join us and learn about Cruising to the Bahamas and maybe find your dream boat. Leave the snow at home please!

Start living the dream with Captain Chris Yacht Services aboard SANDY HOOK, our 44 foot Trawler in Florida. Spend a few days or a week living and learning aboard. Imagine you and your mate Living the Dream….cruising for an entire week with your own personal professional captains guiding you each step of the way! Here are a few of our latest trips aboard SANDY HOOK.

  • YES that’s our training trawler Sandy Hook in the January 2011 issue of Southern Boating magazine, page 4 lower left corner. We were at the Harborage Yacht Club and Marina in Stuart when we snapped this photo at last year’s Stuart Boat Show. Gorgeous sunset on the Okeechobee Waterway!
