SPACIOUS POWERBOAT ‘ISLAND DOG’
Salty Dog Day Sails Spacious Powerboat ‘ISLAND DOG’ is available for both private charters and for pay-per-ticketed-seat public group excursions on select days.
This is an open deck converted dive and fishing boat that is double to triple the size and passenger seating/space capacity compared to some of the other powerboat rental and tour options around St. John. This boat is 12’ wide and has the stability to carry 24 passengers per USCG inspection ratings, but we limit groups to 12 passengers for comfort! This boat is comparable, if not larger passenger seating area, to Juggernaut and Born to Rhumb.
The boat was driven by Captain Stephen solo from Annapolis MD to Florida in 2017 and then with crew Pepper through the Bahamas, Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico on its way home to the Virgin Islands traveling 2400mi in total (not straight shot) during the adventure. What a great ocean & seaworthy boat!
