43' Luxury Charter Boat

Bedrooms 4
Space 900 sq ft
Property type yacht
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

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.

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.


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.

Fantastic place!!

  • 5 of 5

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.!!

Amazing Amazing

  • 5 of 5

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.

An amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Amazing boat. Great place to stay and get away!

  • 5 of 5

Can’t say enough positive things about this boat. Everything is new and super clean. Owner is responsive and take care of the boat. My wife and I were Down for New Years and already have booked for the summer. You can sit on the back deck of the boat and have a drink and just enjoy the marina or walk right over to HogFish restaurant and grab a bite. It is perfect for couples or a family to really experience the keys. We go to the keys a few times a year and will always look to stay here if it is available.
