Berthed in the heart of Tampa Bay and available to take you to a variety of cruise destinations around the Tampa Bay area, as well as some of the largest surrounding Florida attractions and tourist spots. Whether you want to enjoy a private dinner aboard the Island Soul, or travel to a cruise destination such as the Florida keys, Island Soul will get you there among the utmost luxury.
This rugged, exceedingly well built motor yacht blends form and function in a way that makes her ideal for Bahamas cruising and other island hopping. Her shallow 2′ 6″ draft and Hamilton waterjet drives make operating across the Bahama Bank a breeze, while at the same time affording comfortable access to the many interesting harbors and anchorages often denied to deeper draft vessels.
With very nearly eight feet of headroom and equally generous elbow room in all compartments, the Island Soul is well suited for spending extended periods of time aboard. Her cherry wood finish interior is inviting and relaxed, while her country-kitchen style galley facilitates convivial gatherings of family and friends. Large main-deck dining and living/entertainment areas flow together to eliminate any feeling of being cramped or confined in any way. Large windows and truly full sized doorways work to enhance the feeling that she is a much larger vessel than her 90 feet LOA.
On her lower deck, four large staterooms, each with bath en suite and huge closets, provide sleeping and private lounging accommodations for eight. And an outsized laundry/utility room, provides a center from which hired crew can properly service an owner’s party or a charter group, equally well.
The Island Soul’s aft engine room is fitted with triple Yanmar marine diesel engines, coupled to Hamilton waterjet drives, for shallow water operation, high maneuverability, and ultimate flexibility of choice with respect to speed, fuel consumption, and range. Run on all three engines for top speed and performance. Use only the two wing engines for moderate speeds and docking maneuverability. And cut back to the single, centerline engine for passagemaking speeds and extended range.
The engine room itself is very large and roomy, again with nearly eight feet of headroom. Her engines and contained mechanical systems are readily accessible for proper regular maintenance; and she has been maintained in top condition since she was first commissioned.
On deck, her full walk-around configuration enhances one’s feeling of dominion, and makes docking and line handling a snap. Her generous quarter deck is shaded and makes a superb outdoor entertainment area, while her exceedingly large, broad expanse of boat deck provides space for stowing a tender, jet skis, or other water toys, while still leaving ample room in and around her flybridge control station.
If you measure the value of your time on the water in terms of convenience, comfort, and relaxation, then this distinctive, sensible motor yacht is the right choice for your charter!
