Welcome aboard our Bayliner 288 Cruiser. Make new family memories aboard this boat on beautiful Lake Chelan! Enjoy lake living as you catch the sunset from our comfortable indoor or outdoor seating. Relax and unwind and let the waves lap away your stress. With an overall length of 33’, your family will find a comfortable and relaxing place to stay, while enjoying breathtaking views of the lake and surrounding mountain peaks.

The Boat:

Step into our cabin and make yourself comfortable as the outdoors come to you through the panoramic cabin windows. The kitchen is equipped with hot/cold running water, microwave, cooktop, and fridge/freezer. Enjoy family time as you play your favorite games or eat great meals at the raised dining table for four. We have recently installed an a/c unit to keep the boat cool and comfortable when you are inside.

There are three sleeping areas on the boat. The large v-berth in the front comfortably sleeps two adults. In the cozy mid-berth you will find sleeping for two, and the dining table converts to a smaller bed. This boat accommodates up to 3 adults (or up to 4 people total including children). The bathroom boasts a shower, sink, and marine toilet.

This boat is moored in the premier Sunset Marina, and will remain in the boat slip during your stay. The Sunset Marina features a spacious landscaped common area with barbecue pits, fire pit, shaded seating, and plenty of room to engage in lawn games. Our guests utilize the two-story clubhouse, featuring a spacious lounge and recreation room with a built-in flat screen TV, game room with a shuffleboard table and other games. The clubhouse also boasts restrooms, showers, and laundry facilities at no additional cost. The marina is located close to downtown Chelan and next to the Lady of the Lake Ferry dock for easy day trips up to Stehekin, and is in easy walking distance to downtown Chelan.

As with all boats and water activities, we ask that all guests be safe around the water and know how to swim. There is an in-person check-in, and instructions are emailed a week prior to your arrival.

***Lake levels fluctuate throughout the year, with the lake generally being lowest in the spring and at full height in July and August.***


Boat living, grassy yard, propane BBQs, outdoor fireplace, pet friendly (1 dog, <25 lbs), walk into downtown Chelan. You may have 1 vehicle at the Marina, and parking information will be discussed upon check-in with the marina manager. Video cameras/noise monitoring may be present outside the exterior of the vessel.


One well-behaved dog (weighing less than 25 lbs.) is allowed upon approval of the manager with a $50 fee.

It's a Nice Boat and Clubhouse
Very unique place to stay. It is a boat and can rock back and forth in the water, but more during the day than evening. We slept really well on it. Clubhouse really nice. Great location- I would stay again!

a unique way to celebrate!
This was an anniversary present to my hubby. We loved watching the sunrise and sunsets every day. We loved that there was an amazing club house where we could shower and BBQ and even catch a Mariners game on one of their huge TVs. The Marina itself was clean and the harbor master(?) was friendly and always there to answer questions. The wineries and restaurants are very closely, and offer all kinds of wonderful options. We opened the hatch above the berth bed and watched the stars at night. Thank you so much for the opportunity to celebrate our anniversary on such a unique rental!

Fantastic four nights
My 10-year old and I stayed on the boat for four nights and loved it! We enjoyed the spacious bed, comfy indoor table and seating, A/C and little bathroom. I appreciated having a coffee maker, toaster and mini fridge aboard the boat, as well as use of the full size fridge and BBQ grills at the clubhouse. The clubhouse is very nice with TVs, games, wi-fi, and showers. It was quiet and peaceful in the marina and in the clubhouse. A fantastic stay!

Fun way to afford a lakefront vacay!
Loved this experience. It was great to have the marina amenities to balance the small space of the boat. I don't think I would want to have more then 2 people, but if you don't mind really close quarters it could work. Helpful and easy to communicate with the rental company. Thanks for the stay!

Peaceful week
Spent a week on the boat alone during an event in town. Very peaceful and quiet. I'd say it would be a pretty tight squeeze for 2 people for a week. But probably pretty comfy for a few days...all depends if you're spending most of the day on or off the boat. Most amenities on the boat...but limited space obviously limits some of the things people may expect out of a house, no shocker. Marina clubhouse was a real benefit for full bath/shower option. I didn't spend much time in it, but for a bigger group, perhaps would have. This was a fun way to spend some time away and not in a basic motel room.

My friend and I stayed on the boat for four nights. They had everything we needed: chairs for lounging, a mini fridge, extra towels, and even AC. The host was easy to get a hold of and very responsive. We would definitely come back!

Boat Life!
The boat is comfortable and has all the necessities we needed. We didn't plan to spend much time on the boat, mainly use it for sleeping and spend the rest of our time with family. What we didn't plan on was the Marina Clubhouse which we discovered to be a fabulous asset! It is beautiful and very well equipped. You virtually have a boat as your bedroom and the marina as a four-star resort. The clubhouse has a bar; living room with plenty of seating, fireplace, and a large TV; full kitchen and 3 large BBQ's on the patio; shower suites; bathrooms; laundry facilities; shuffleboard; upstairs lounge with beautiful views, dining areas inside and out and a fire pit. Access is through a keypad, so it's private and only for marina members. We stayed the 4th of July weekend, and with the exception of the 4th, we pretty much had the clubhouse to ourselves. The marina and staff there were fabulous! Staff is there from 7amish to 6pmish and you have 24/7 access. They offer complimentary beers for members (your status renting the boat) allowed us to store our food and beverages in their full-size refrigerator and made us feel very welcome. We grilled the first night (eventually found the timer to turn the gas on to the grills on the other side of the wall) and had dinner with family on the patio overlooking the lake. The bathrooms and shower suites greatly enhanced our stay. There was one hiccup, the weather turned very hot right before we arrived. The first night on the boat was uncomfortable with the heat and lack of airflow. Management installed an AC unit which made a big difference. They took care of us for the inconvenience going above and beyond. I would happily recommend staying. Just be sure the rocking of the boat overnight is okay with you.
