Waterfront Dreamboat Escape for Two

Aloha, Welcome! Stay aboard Kealoha and unwind in a tiki-styled yacht on the water. We combined the best parts of boat life on a trawler with a unique, overnight experience dockside- in a private, gated marina. Kealoha was designed to be the one-of-a-kind stay experience on the Seacoast. This dream boat is a Vintage Grand Banks Trawler with a dining area, kitchen, bathroom, master bed and includes fresh water and electricity. The 3 lounge areas outside are perfect to sip a cocktail and relax.

This 1969 Grand Banks Sedan Trawler was defined as the quintessential ‘Luxury Motor Yacht’ in its day and inspired a flurry of other Trawler-type boats that could not match the craftsmanship and quality found in this vessel. Panoramic water views, exterior lounging areas, full living space and ample accommodations for 2 adults, we refitted Kealoha for the ultimate coze and comfortable living! This Polynesian escape has fresh coats of paint– with hints of vintage decor complimenting the natural teak throughout.

Kealoha is a “work of art” by skilled shipbuilders and we have put A LOT of effort in bringing her back to her original glory and aim to keep her that way. She is a beauty and deserves your love and respect 😉 SHE IS NOT A PARTY BOAT! This tiki treasure is the ideal escape for life adventurers, artists, musicians, thinkers, writers, the solo traveler, lovebirds, and anyone looking for a one-of-a-kind experience that feels away from the public yet is close to all the happenings that Portsmouth & Kittery have to offer.

Experience the best of Portsmouth NH and Kittery ME within a short walking distance from the dock at Badgers Island. Badgers Island is located on the Piscataqua River that separates Maine and New Hampshire. Kittery and Portsmouth downtowns are closer than you might think. You’ll love the close proximity to shops, restaurants, events, galleries and nightlife. This is waterfront at its finest… being right on the water and relaxing up on the flybridge or the cockpit- a fine place to spend a balmy evening. Fall asleep to the gentle roll of the water and wake recharged in the bright deckhouse with panoramic views all round.

The deckhouse includes a convertible dinette and settee with a small galley forward to port. Galley has a fridge with a small freezer, sink, 4 burner gas stove and oven, cooking/grilling utensils, cocktail and wine glasses and the usual spices. Large windows provide panoramic views of the water. Below, is the private stateroom that is setup with a full size bed that can be converted to 2 twins. The bathroom is a wet-bath with a shower on the forward wall over the head.

While there is no air conditioning, this boat was designed with 3 large windows, hatch and a slider door that serves as the core component to the self-ventilating nature, keeping the structure cool and the air moving. There is no wifi however, Kealoha can be provisioned with a mobile hotspot Wi-Fi (please reach out in advance if needed).

Kealoha includes a propane grill, portable heater, Keurig coffee maker and supplies, fridge with small freezer, 5 gallon electric hot water tank, 110 fresh water tank, shower, toilet and AUX am/fm stereo.
