This is more like a camping/ learn to sail experience than a floating hotel. Vignette is NOT PARKED AT A DOCK. She is anchored in the middle of Banks Channel, and 1 block away from Atlantic Beaches
There you'll find an exotic oasis on your very own classic sailing vessel.
Come and experience a slice of the cruising lifestyle. Fall is here now and temps are dropping into the 50s at night. If you are not comfortable cozying up in a sleeping bag, this is not for you. Hot showers at a nearby marina.
Vignette is a 39ft custom one-of-a-kind sailboat professionally built in 1968 in Trappe Maryland by Dickerson boat builders.
Vignette is anchored in Banks Channel, a short dinghy ride to the public docks in the heart of Wrightsville beach. Vignette is set up for your comfort, with a v-birth double bed, a bathroom with a cold gravity shower, a dining area with a fold out table, a microwave, and refrigerator.
There is a grill onboard~! Feel free to bring some food and have a barbecue!
I provide clean sheets for the first 2 guests in the V-Berth, the remaining bunks are BYO linens and.
The boat is anchored out in the middle of a safe harbor called Banks Channel. & since the boat is on anchor you will have ultimate privacy.
Relax in the cabin, or out in the cockpit with views of the water all around! Vignette is not located at a dock, it is a short ride in an inflatable dinghy to and from the boat. If you are easily prone to motion sickness, best to find a tree house instead.
Numerous times a week we get dolphin visits in the harbor. With tons of wildlife around, you may be lucky enough to see some!

I will ferry you to and from shore in our inflatable dinghy as often as you wish. No limit/ No extra charges.
Each booking includes ferrying guests and visitors to and from the anchorage. Vignette is NOT PARKED AT A DOCK. Swimming in the channel is possible, I recommend life preservers and use of a lanyard because of the strong currents in the channel. Heavy drinking or drugging is not permitted on the boat. Anyone found to be overdone will be removed from the boat for safety reasons.
Your stay may be cancelled due to foul weather. Rainy wet weather is not considered to necessarily be foul weather in and of itself. Add high winds with the rain and I will allow a cancellation. We will do our best to reschedule your stay when the weather permits it. This does not happen very often, but your safety is important to us, and it can be a rough ride when wind picks up to 40mph knots plus! Now if you're an adventurous type and this sounds appealing to you, you're welcome to ride out the storm as us sailors normally do.
I also have a Hobie Mirage Tandem Island sailing kayak. It has outriggers that fold up for docking. The outriggers make this boat extremely stable. This kayak can be sailed, peddled or paddled. It also has built in fishing pole holders. The boat is a 2 seater but can easily be handled by 1 person. Sheila (the sailing kayak) is no extra charge for my Air BNB guests and a sailing lesson is possible to get you over any fears you might have.
You will make your job of finding the public dock much easier by using g00gle (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) earth to find Wynn plaza. Enter it into the search and get a look at the public dock location on Waynick Blvd.
