Vacation On A Classic Yacht With Views Of The San Francisco Bay

All of the marinas provide a wonderful vacation experience with great local restaurants and bars, bird sanctuaries, a relaxed vacation experience. Only 18 miles/29km west of San Francisco, & 11.5 miles/18.5km east of Oakland, CA. Panoramic views of the SF Bay make for an unforgettable stay. Richmond is a perfect location wether you visit Oakland or Berkeley, sightsee in San Francisco at Fisherman's Wharf or Twin Peaks, plan to drive to the states capital Sacramento or go wine tasting in the Napa Valley, there is no better central location than Emeryville and our boat, Plan B.

The yacht sleeps six adults in beds - in two bedrooms. One bedroom is located in the front of the boat and one in the rear (aft). The main state room makes up the kitchen and living room area and is situated between the bedrooms which creates a pleasant separation for privacy. In each bedroom there one full bath with a separate shower in each.

The yacht features a complete kitchen area with gas stove, microwave oven, full size refrigerator, large sink, granite counters etc. There are four decks that are available for entertaining up to 18 guests at a single gathering. The yacht’s interior walls are made up of the highest quality beautiful teak wood and there is an old classic charm that is associated with the interior.

For comfort, the front bedroom is carpeted and has a flat screen TV with DVD player. The rear bedroom has nice wooden floors a flat screen TV with DVD. The main salon also includes a flat screen TV. Internet access and WiFi is provided free of charge. The yacht is 100% seaworthy and has two huge turbo diesel engines. At an additional cost the boat can be taken out by a licensed skipper on the beautiful San Francisco bay and there are too many sites to see. The boat can dock at Angel Island, Fisherman's Warf in San Francisco and the Sausalito Marina just to name a few. There are also many restaurants and bars with guest docks at Jack London Square in Oakland, and additional restaurants with public docks along the famous Oakland Estuary. We can plan catered parties, make other special arrangements and tailor a once-in-a lifetime experience for your group.

A Fun New Experience

  • 5 of 5

What a great way to stay and visit San Francisco. Surprised the kids, wife and in-laws. Plenty of room for the six of us. My kids thought it was the coolest thing. Beats a hotel any day. We were there over the 4th of July and saw the fireworks right from the yacht. The dock location was perfectly situated for visiting the surrounding area attractions. Denise and her nephew were just a phone call away and quickly resolved a minor problem on the boat without any disruption to our trip. It was nice to find the fridge stocked with a few items when we arrived so that we would not have to rush out to the grocery store. The dock was peaceful and the sway of the ocean made for a good nights sleep. The area safe and secure, and other boaters very friendly. The only drawback and suggestion I would make to Denise would be to clear out the clutter of cleaning products and other items in drawers and closets to free up more space for guests. Otherwise a perfect stay. When back in San Fran we would do it again.

Peaceful After Hectic City Days!

  • 3 of 5

The hosts are very nice people! We were met at the dock by Simon (Denise's son) who was wonderful and we were greeted onboard with fresh roses, a bottle of wine, and bagels! The kitchen area is very nice, and although we didn't cook, it had what we needed for breakfast, coffee, etc. Plan B is definitely a "classic" boat and is in need of a little TLC. It is moored in Richmond, CA not Emeryville as the website shows. We (2 adult couples) used it as our hotel room while on a week long football stadium tour trip to California. The location is great! Our guys were disappointed that there was no satellite TV as advertised because we planned to stay on the yacht in the evenings to watch football games, drink wine, and enjoy the gorgeous view. Instead we had to go find sports bars. We called the owners, but there was nothing they could do. Apparently, they had recently changed marinas and hadn't had a chance to get the Dish TV working. The bathrooms/showers are very small, but there is a boat house at the marina with really nice showers! It was a beautiful walk up the dock in the mornings to the showers. (The smallest person in our group showered onboard.) The bedroom situation is a bit different than the website indicates. There is a queen bed in the stern. The bow has a raised double-bed and two raised (must climb up) twin beds snuggled into the point of the bow. We used the twins as my 6'4" husband couldn't fit anywhere else. This boat is perfect for 2 adults and 2 kids. It was nice to return to the peaceful marina after a the hustle and bustle of San Fran during the day. The best part was sitting on the upper decks and enjoying a beautiful sunrise with a cup of coffee or a beautiful sunset with a glass of Napa Valley wine! We enjoyed ourselves and had a great once in a lifetime adventure!
