"People are happy" I tell folks when asked about my charters on the SF Bay. That is shared enjoyment for them and for me, smiles every time.
Being protected from the elements and SF Bay's notorious winds, with a complete view from the cabin area allows comfort, ease and visibility without getting wet, cold or having to wear foul weather gear. The upper flybridge and aft deck also offer privacy and comfort choices.
This is not a sailboat, and does not heel over, or forced below to get out of the elements.
Max number of passengers is SIX.
Some of the photos are from a previous boat, about the same size, but the same spirit, laughter and smiles...
Enjoy the magnificent San Francisco Bay with all its surprises and vistas.

Stuart and his boat were perfect for the bay waters. We toured under the GG bridge, and then went to Angel Island to take the tour. I'm thinking of getting a boat and Stu had LOTS of good ideas for what kind and where to get it. He was VERY friendly to my family, and we have become friends outside of Boatbound. I'll be staying in touch with him for my boat buying procedures, and as a new friend.
Omg don't know where to even begin !! Stuart has made the trip far beyond amazing!! It was my girlfriends birthday and I wanted to surprise her and thanks to stuart he made it amazing!!! I most defenitly recommend to anyone who wants to have an amazing day he is an outstanding guy! I will defenitly be booking again! Thank you once again Stuart for making my trip amazing !!!!! :)
Stuart was a great host and had an amazing boat! He was very accommodating with the start time and let us go out on the deck as much as possible (the weather was a bit rough so sometimes it wasn't safe). WE HAD A FANTASTIC TIME THANKS TO STUART! Highly recommend!
We celebrated a lovely Father's Day with our family on Stuart's boat. He was a gracious captain and host, and his boat was spotless and comfortable. Plenty of places to sit indoors and out, plus room for a picnic. Because there is a cover over the back of the boat, I felt it was really safe for my 4 and 6 year old children. Stuart was very accommodating with our kids and all of the sites we wanted to see. It was a clear and warm day on the Bay which made for easing sailing under the Golden Gate Bridge and a great view of the entire San Francisco Bay.
My family and I connected with Stuart for a day out on the Bay and it was amazing. He suggested a Tram Tour on Angel Island since we have never been to the Island and it was a remarkable experience. Stuart was the best host/Captain. He was informative and professional. He was kind enough to allow my children to steer his beautiful vessel in calm waters which added to the great experience we had with Stuart. We will definitely charter with Stuart again in the near future. If your looking for a great time on the Bay, I would recommend that you contact Stuart. He's awesome.
Our family had a wonderful morning out on the Bay with Stuart! Stuart was so helpful in assisting our planning when to leave the harbor and it worked out perfectly. We couldn't have asked for better conditions! He took us under the Golden Gate, we saw two tall ships, and many seals along the harbor. It was an extra special morning because we placed my mothers ashes along Angel Island, touching and lovely. Looking forward to another adventure with Stuart one day.
My previous charter was cancelled at the last minute by the captain, so when I found Stuart and his boat available, I requested a booking. Stuart was great in responding very promptly. He was very helpful and very informative. I chartered his boat for my husband's 40th birthday, for him and his close buddies. Stuart greeted them with a great smile, and a big happy Birthday balloon. He was very considerate and friendly. The group said they had the best time ever. I would definitely charter from him again. THANK YOU STUART for making the celebration a big success!!
Stuart is one of the best captains, and his boat is perfect for get-togethers/parties on the water. We had an amazing journey during fleet week this year, and Stuart knew ALL the ins and outs of the water to ensure the best views. Great personality with a "can do" attitude. Perfect.
Had a great time with Stuart, out on the water during Fleet Week. Stuart was very responsive and accommodating of our desires and schedule. We took the three-hour tour (half-day), and saw Alcatraz, Sausalito, the Golden Gate Bridge, the north side of the City, and the airshow. An awesome day!
Stuart and his boat was perfect for a great day boating around the Bay. The Boat is very clean and comfortable and Stuart is very friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. A really fantastic experience that we can easily rate a 5-Star experience. We will be renting with Stuart again!
Great fun evening out with Stuart who showed us the sights of the bay right up under the Golden Gate bridge. Topped-off by experiencing the Sausalito, 4th July fireworks. Stuart was friendly, helpful and easy going on board whilst always keeping a safety-eye out on what was a busy evening on the bay.
Excellent day on the water. Stuart is a great captain, both knowledgeable on the area and a very friendly person. The boat is great, giving you the opportunity to be both outside or inside, which is nice when it is windy or cold. Anyone taking this trip with Stuart will have an enjoyable day.
