Step out of the ordinary, and stay on a lovely sailboat in Stamford Harbor! Our 1966 Pearson is a charming old yacht, with a wood burning fireplace, cherry interior, and a slip right next to two of Stamford's waterfront restaurants and walking distance to Stamford's own Half Full Brewery!

Walk down the gangway and step aboard the Extra Dry: a 1966 Pearson Alberg 35 (a 35 foot sailboat!). Accommodations for two in the forward vee-berth, or two in the main cabin, make for a cozy and charming stay! She is well-appointed, with a wood-burning stove, galley and grill, and A/C unit for use in the summer, and heating unit for the fall/winter. Enjoy board games around the cabin table, relax in our hammock, and enjoy the harbor night life!

As summer ends and fall is in the air, stay cozy and warm on board using our electric heating system, or relax around the wood-burning stove with a good book and a glass of wine.

The marina has showers and bathrooms, which you will also have access to. There are two great restaurants at the marina: The Crab Shell, and Prime Steakhouse. Taxi service to downtown Stamford is readily available. Across the harbor (accessible via the free water taxi on summer weekends) are three great restaurant/bars: Paloma, World Of Beer, and Sign of the Whale.


Guests have full, private access to the boat (on the slip nonly...guests are not allowed to take the boat out on the water, as per AirBNB terms of service. Note: "captained charters" are available to guests upon request. We will take you sailing around Long Island Sound, show you the ropes, anchor near the lighthouse for some swimming, and grill up delicious food! Please mention any interest in a charter when making your booking and we will discuss options. Drew is a USCG Certified Master Captain. Charters are an additional fee and are subject to the owners' availability and discretion)

The small galley inside has a toaster,a coffee maker, and hot water kettle. The outdoor gas grill is available year-round.

Our "neighborhood" is the harbor! Lovely waterfront walks, a fishing pier, restaurants and nightlife. Walking distance to the Half Full Brewery, which offers tours and tastings. Live music on the weekends at the Crab Shell...only steps from the dock!

There is taxi service to downtown Stamford readily available. Within Stamford there is a free trolley that will take you to various parts of town. There is free parking at the marina if you are driving. We are five minutes from the Stamford train station on the Metro-North line, which is a 45-minute express train from Grand Central.

On weekends in the summer there is a free water taxi that will bring you across the harbor to the new Harbor Point development. There is a takeout breakfast/lunch spot called "Henri's" in the park by the fountain, as well as "World Of Beer", which has 500 craft beers and pub fare. "Paloma" offers upscale Mexican waterfront dining, and "Sign of the Whale" is Stamford's only roof-top bar! All are easily accessible by kayak or water taxi from the boat.

We've had two photo shoots and two music videos shot on board! AirBNB will not let me post the link to the video: (URL HIDDEN)

Serveis i zones comuns

You will have access to the boat (on the slip, only). The boat is not available for guests to sail on their own (as per AirBNB terms of service), only for use on the dock and as a place to stay. Private captained charters can be arranged on a case-by-case basis depending on host availability. Please inquire! The marina has showers and bathrooms, which are open year round and are accessible only with your marina key (they are not "public"). While the boat does have a "head", we ask that guests only use this for "#1 type emergencies during the night, as the marine head is delicate and needs to be pumped out regularly. Absolutely NO paper down the toilet. There are two great restaurants at the marina: The Crab Shell, and a new steakhouse going in during the summer of 2016. Taxi service to downtown Stamford is readily available.

Altres aspectes destacables

A/C is available during the summer, and heat is available during the cooler months.

2-person Kayak, paddles, and life jackets are available for guest use during summer months (May-September)

Board Games on the boat: Scrabble, Backgammon, Fluxx, Connect 4, playing cards, Ticket to Ride, Kill Dr. Lucky

Note: Marina facilities (heated bathrooms, showers, and laundry) are located approximately 100 yards from the boat, on shore. We ask that our guests use the onshore facilities, as marine heads (toilets) and tanks are very delicate and expensive to maintain and clean. Overnight "#1" only in the toilet please!

Note: The boat is "winterized" between Dec. 15 - May 15th yearly. During that time there is no running water on board, and the toilet cannot be used because of freezing issues (it is winterized with antifreeze). Bottled water is provided for guest use, and the onshore facilities must be used. Two electric heaters are provided for your comfort.

There is no smoking on the boat, but right outside on the pier is fine. We are open to allowing small dogs on a case-by-case basis (please inquire). We ask all guests to be considerate of the fact that this is a boat, not a house! Please, no shoes in the cabin, and only non-marking boat shoes on deck.

We also ask that guests use the marina facilities rather than the on-board toilet, as it requires emptying. The marina bathrooms include showers, toilets, and laundry, and are 100 yards from the boat, on shore.

Drew was very responsive and accommodating. He worked hard to make sure we had a great stay. The location can't be beat!

This was so great! It's was a little bit stormy, but that made everything even more fun! The board games were perfect and the book selection was really interesting. Personal favorite touches included: the hammock on deck, connect four, and the bag of tea-light candles that someone had left behind. Also, oddly enough, the weight of the comforter on the bed was amazing. Would stay here again!

Resposta de Drew:
So glad that you guys enjoyed it!! We look at the boat as a little cabin, close to civilization but also nicely enough removed. Board games on a stormy night are exactly why we have the boat. Thank you so much for a) staying aboard and enjoying it as we intended, and b) leaving the boat in such pristine condition. We appreciate it! Come back again soon!

Staying in a sailboat was a welcoming new experience with plenty of tranquility and the water rocking me to sleep each night. Although having to walk a little for each restroom or shower visit could be cumbersome for others, I did not have a problem staying for a week during a business trip full of early mornings.

We had a very nice stay on the sailboat. It was very comfortable and the marina had nice facilities as well. We went on a nice paddle in the double kayak (about 4 miles) there was plenty of things to check out while on the water.

Drew's boat was great! The area was nice and perfect for a little night out away from home. Less than a 7 minute walk from Half Full Brewery which was really awesome. Would definitely stay again!!

Had a great 2 nights at Drew's! We had dinner one night the Crab Shell right near the boat, and the other night we took the free water taxi across to Harbor Point and enjoyed a few of the bars/restaurants. Spent our day hanging on the boat, reading, playing cards etc. Everything was clean and we felt very safe. Only negative about our stay was unfortunately a lot of rain during our second night! As mentioned in prior comments, there is a bit of a smell of gas coming from beneath the boat but Drew reassured us this was normal. Just worth mentioning for those who may be sensitive to that. Definitely a fun and different way to spend a weekend getaway!
