Island Packet 40 Very stable cruising sailboat. Chesapeake Bay Hampton Roads Virginia Beach Norfolk Williamsburg Yorktown
Enjoy day sails or extended cruising on a fully licensed and commercially insured Island Packet 40 cutter rigged sailboat. Can be chartered as Captained or Crewed charter. Salt Ponds Marina is on the west side of the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel, just off Rt 64. Captain Dave, 100 ton sailing Master and ASA Instructor will take you safely into the southern Chesapeake Bay for a day. (You can see him in some of the GetMyBoat “How To” videos.) Or we can take a couple on a sailing adventure anywhere on the Bay. See if the sailing lifestyle is for you BEFORE you buy. Two sleeping cabins, each with their own private toilets and shower. First mate Kathy is a great cook. And REALLY good at cocktails. We also enjoy a nice glass of red. And music from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. Kathy can do all the cooking or help you prepare your own in our galley that features three burner stove, oven, frig, freezer, herbs and spices As a bonus, we also have an air fryer and Instapot pressure cooker. We have a propane grill. Sail plan features furling genoa, furling staysail, and in mast furling main. Allows us to shorten and adjust sails safely from the cockpit. Full cockpit enclosure assures guests are secure and dry, no matter what the weather. Generator provides full electricity, air conditioning or heat. Because of our moderate temps here in the Southern Bay, we can sail comfortably til the end of December. Then our season begins again around early April. Kathy and I look forward to sharing our love of sailing and cruising aboard “Knee Deep.” The complete cruising yacht.
