Q. What are some of your favorite memories aboard?
A. The spaciousness of the entertaining spaces created plenty of room for families and friends. We greatly enjoyed meeting new boaters and locals at each stop along our journey. Though nail biting at first, we’ve grown to love the excitement of multi-day, offshore cruising – especially, the beauty of navigating at night.
Q. What are some of your favorite cruising destination you have been with Spyhop II?
A. After moving aboard and settling in, we embarked on a four-month trip up and down the US east coast from Delray Beach, FL, ultimately reaching Newport, RI. Favorite stops included Hilton Head, Bald Head Island, St. Michaels on the Chesapeake Bay, Liberty Landing and many days enjoying family and sights in NYC, the beauty of Long Island’s north shore from Port Washington in the west to Port Jefferson in the east and Greenport on the Peconic and Long’s Islands north fork.
We also enjoyed a multi-month journey to the Bahamas that created some of our fondest memories. We spent time with friends that live on Green Turtle Cay in the Abacos and enjoyed friends flying in to visit and cruise with us. We were truly amazed by the calm and seclusion of the Exuma Land and Sea Park and the most magically, beautiful waters we’ve ever seen.
Q. What are you doing now that you are selling Spyhop II?
A. As liveaboards, we have packed in so much into a few short years but, feel we have accomplished much of what we set out to do. We have always loved the wonderful seasons and activities in the US West and have purchased a second home in Park City to have more time to enjoy all that it has to offer. We’ll maintain our primary residence in Florida, but plan to shift back and forth to relish the best of each region. Spyhop II is the third boat that we’ve owned, and likely not the last.
