Listing is accurate. This is a busy party atmosphere. Live music most of the time with lively crowds but very friendly people. The beds are small. My husband is 6'2" and I'm 5'8" and 7 months pregnant so he bumped his head a few times and I had difficulty finding comfortable spots but that is in no way the host fault just letting others know. Its a fun unique experience to stay on a boat regardless. We would have felt it was a better value if we could have had better weather to enjoy some of the other amenities but once again, that is not the host fault and we made do with plenty of shopping and eating ;) Host is very quick to respond to questions and useful info/suggestions/and directions found all over the boat with labels. Overall a fun and unique quick get-away that I would recommend to others.
My family and I stayed in this boat for an extended weekend and LOVED it! The hosts were great and the location was awesome... right where you wanted to be. Swimming in the mornings and live music all (URL HIDDEN) was a fantastic way to end the summer! Thanks!
All was great. Very close to the Flora-Bama lounge/bar entertainment area. So lots of live music nearby in walking distance. Very clean and peaceful (away from the condos and the crowds). Stylish interior. Just remember that tall folks (6 ft 5 inches) - may find ceiling height short- but then that should be expected - it is a boat. Great sitting outside on the deck under the canopy.
Great experience, I definitely recommend it and will definitely do it again! Great boat, host amenities, location, and atmosphere.
Had a good stay .. Great location.. relaxed & unique experience... Just a short taste of "Salt Life" ... Will be back ...
My daughter and I really enjoyed our experience on the motor yacht. We loved sitting on the deck and watching the boats and the feel of the boat rocking. Our host was really helpful in letting us know how to utilize the boat. He was also helpful in giving us ideas on the best places to eat. The boat had nice accommodations and even included snacks! Our host was easily reached in case we had problems or questions. He was interesting to talk to and we really liked a different experience from a condo or a hotel. The marina was right across from the famous Flora Bama Yacht Club where the food is great and they never close! We really enjoyed our time there!

Staying on the yacht was a fun experience. It was right in the center of all the excitement. We really enjoyed watching the sunsets on the water. The bed was tight for two people but two twin beds are also provided in the front. Book this place if you want to see a different version of a beach vacation. Much more interesting than a boring high rise beach condo.
Billy was a wonderful host. He welcomed us and showed us the ins and outs of staying on the boat. He left snacks and even brought by a beautiful watermelon which unfortunately we neglected to eat. The harbor community was so friendly and there was so much to do all within a short walk from the boat. Our boys fished from the dock and the staff at the marina office was very friendly and more than helpful. They helped us book a fishing trip that our boys loved. The area is both family and adult friendly. The three bars and restaurants within a short walk from the boat provided many choices for food and the music from the beach was a wonderful backdrop for an evening of sitting on the bow of the boat drinking some wine and watching the sunset while still being able to keep an eye on the kids fishing from the dock. Oh and I can't forget about the harbors resident flying friend. Bob the bird was a constant chaperone for the boys while they fished. I'm pretty sure he gained a pound or two while we were there from all the fish we through to him. Guys if you are looking for the Ritz Carlton or the Four Seasons this is probably not for you. You are on a boat and no matter how large there is going to be a few cramped spaces and some getting used to. However if you are looking for a great time on the water in a friendly community with loads of things to do please give this a try. I expect you will be remembering it for years to come. Oh, did I mention the Kayaks and paddle boards available for your use? I get up before the rest of the family so my quiet time was getting on the paddle board at around 5:30 AM or so and paddling with my cup of coffee through the harbor and sitting in the middle of the channel sipping my cup and enjoying the clean fresh morning breeze then paddling to the beach and sitting on the blue Aderondak (Yeah I don''t know how to spell it) Chair with my toes in the water until my wife eventually came to sit with me around 8. All in all we had a great time.
Awesome stay! The host was super accommodating and laid back. Being able to get a bushwacker from the flora bama was awesome. Will definitely do this again!
He was very welcoming and was willing to help us with any problems. My party had a blast on the yacht!
This place was awesome! It's very quaint and something I'll remember forever. There was plenty of parking in the area and it was the best way to get the full beach experience.
This was a great 1 night stay. The boat was great! A little Jimmy Buffett and drinks on the deck. Walking distance to great eats and the beach. The host was great. Very interesting guy! Check out his other boats, if you've got a bigger crowd.
We had the best time at the FloraBama Marina on Billy's 50' Hatteras Yacht. A group of 9 friends and I booked it for the 4th of July weekend. Billy left us snacks, toiletries, and glow sticks to celebrate the holiday. He even let us have some of his red fish that was in his freezer. It was wonderful. He was easy to get in touch with if we had questions. A great host all around! I highly recommend his boats! Thanks Billy
Great trip-- we actually ended up booking twice so this is my second review-- all was great so much so that my wife and I are attempting to book again in two weeks for two more nights. This place is super cool and the owner is awesome.
Billy was a awesome host before we even booked. He answered a ton of questions. He was there to greet us on time and show us the boat. This boat was fantastic for my wife and I and our 6 year old son. Staying in the marina there was always something cool to watch. The boat is directly behind FlorBama and is perfect location to everything. Plenty of parking and Billy had paddle boards and kayaks available. The boat was stocked with plenty of things from toothpaste to snacks. What a great experience and we will stay there anytime we go from now on. Book this stay and you will love it. Everything was awesome
Our host made us feel very welcome! We will do that again!
Great trip for my 13 year old son and myself. We came down for 4 days for a baseball tournament. All of he kids were jeleous that my son was staying on a boat. Billy is fantastic. He communciated well before the trip and was there to greet us. He is always available. Great location, with a lot going on. Each day you would see the many fish that were caught, someone even reeled in a 6ft. shark. Would have loved to use the services more, but baseball kept us busy. The boat is pretty much as advertised, might be alittle tight for 6, but pretty comfortable for 4. We will return with the family.
We never would have spent as much time in a hotel room as we did on this yacht. I’m so glad we decided to cancel our beach hotel reservations and stay here instead. We loved all the little touches in this recently remodeled place. Billy left us snacks on the table and toiletries in the bedroom. He was very accessible and made sure we were comfortable. He let us keep the air conditioning on even when we weren’t onboard, so it always felt pleasant below deck even though it was more than 90 degrees above. We enjoyed the gentle movement of the boat rocking us to sleep every night. The sunset view on the water is gorgeous. The food at the FloraBama Ole River Bar is very good. Between the beach and the three restaurants and the boat, you could easily leave your car parked for your entire stay. Don’t forget to pack a bottle of rum!
Most wonderful vacation! The boat was fabulous. The host had snacks, water, sunscreen, cereal,etc. we had access to his snorkel gear and paddle boards. The location is the best, we never left the property, food and entertainment right there. It was peaceful and quiet inside the boat. The owner even helped with fishing tackle and tips and helped us with luggage when we left. We rented a pontoon at the marina, the food and drinks at All the Flora- Bama restaurants were fabulous. We will continue to come back and plan to bring our adult kids. We loved staying bayside in this boat!!! The host checked on us frequently to make sure we had everything we needed.
