As a family we love to cruise Florida Keys and bay waters of South Florida - our own domestic Caribbean paradise with thousands of small pristine islands, calm, crystal clear waters, amazing coral reefs and snow white sandbars.
We want to offer our guests unique liveaboard vacation experience very similar to Caribbean yacht charters, but for much less and here in Florida.
Cruising and liveaboard vacations shouldn't be for rich people only!

The idea of designing Sandbar Villa came to us during our vacation in Florida Keys - we were on our old cruiser near small deserted island with huge snow white sandbar, it was perfect vacation with only one small problem - our small cruiser wasn't big enough for family vacation.
We believe that bay waters of S FL could be a perfect vacation area for other people too - boaters, fishermen, divers and people, who just want to get away from everything for few days, with great weather all year around, exellent place for fishing and diving in the safe and convenient US waters.
​First we did some research on ecological and legal rules for boating in S FL. Then my husband, old boater and builder with 30 years of experience in both areas, designed special houseboat for coastal area - very durable, stable and safe. Initially he designed her like for himself and his fishing buddies - simple and rugged old fashion fishermen lodge.
But I convinced him to make a few changes for the comfort of our guests, like making rooms larger, adding interior stairs, and walkaround balconies with covered front and back porches on both levels and house size kitchen with standard appliances instead of tiny boat kitchenette with dorm size appliances, it wasn't easy process, but I did it with help of my daughter.
Most of production houseboats are designed for inland lakes and rivers with single deck and they based on the pontoons or shallow drafted hulls, they are top heavy and just a gust of wind can flip them, they are unsafe in the coastal areas.
We have designed our vessel specifically for bayside waters of South Florida - very durable, safe and stable. Her hull is made of solid heavily reinforced marine concrete.
Advantages of our concrete hull over fiberglass or metal hulls include -

Durability - our hull is much stronger and thicker than metal or fiberglass hulls, it can last up to 100 years without any regular maintenance. Our hull is not bulletproof, it is cannonproof!

Stability - All metal and fiberglass hulls are light and without tons of ballast their center of gravity is high, this is why they roll on windy or choppy days. Our hull is very heavy (appr. 60 tons) it's center of gravity is low - at waterline, it is very stable even on windy days.

​Our vessel is self-propelled, completely self-contained and self-sufficient for long rental periods. She is also 100% green - no pollution of any kind, even our generator and outboard motors are powered by propane. All needed energy will be produced by solar panels and stored in the large bank of deep cycle batteries with backup generator for hot summer nights. Rain water will be collected and used for showers. All garbage and sewage will be disposed in the marinas according to the FL laws.

Our double deck layout is spacious, functional and convenient. perfect for family vacations -

Walkaround covered balconies and front and back porches on both levels will allow you to enjoy being outdoors anytime with any weather conditions. Our bedrooms are not tiny boat or cruise ship cabins, they are large, regular house size 12'x12'. Total square footage under the roof is 1620 SF.

Lower deck has private captain suite, house size kitchen with breakfast bar open to the living and dining area, outdoor gas grill with patio set for alfresco cooking and dining.
Upper deck has two private suites with full bathrooms and wraparound covered balcony with front and back porches.
Our roof is actually a huge sundeck with excellent all around waterview, with patio dining set and beach chairs.

Spacious Hull with 6' headroom with huge concrete water and sewage holding tanks and still with plenty of space for storage of all supplies, equipment and all water toys for our guests - fishing rods, snorkeling sets, kayaks, SUPs etc.
