The OCEAN ROMANCE dockside bed and breakfast yacht is custom designed/built, the largest Bertram cockpit motor yacht in the world. It was extended from 58 feet to 80 feet by a Florida shipyard for a prior owner. Thereafter, the OCEAN ROMANCE was used successfully as a private yacht, charter vessel and since 2012 as a licensed dockside bed and breakfast yacht hotel in Newport, Rhode Island from mid-May to mid-November. For several years OCEAN ROMANCE has been rated "5 STARS" and as the number 1 bed and breakfast in Newport by multiple vacation listing websites, as well as the best value, top rated breakfast and location.
The OCEAN ROMANCE features 3 guest staterooms for the comfort of 6 guests (the U.S. Coast Guard is limit 2 guests per stateroom). The guest rooms are in the aft section and include a full beam master suite with king bed and full bathroom, and across the hallway are 2 queen staterooms, each with 3/4 bathrooms.
OCEAN ROMANCE has a separation of areas at the lower helm for the privacy of guests. The owner lives in the private, forward section of the yacht. The forward section has a large living and dining area, state of the art galley, and queen bed stateroom plus crew quarters - each with a bathroom.
The OCEAN ROMANCE yacht stays at the dock and does not offer a cruise or charter option. Children must be at least 12 years of age to come aboard or be guests. A boarding ladder is used to get on and off the vessel because the yacht is docked on a fixed dock with tidal changes. The OCEAN ROMANCE yacht is not handicap accessible and is not appropriate for handicapped or very elderly people. There is no smoking on the yacht and pets are not allowed.
Innkeeper Jean and her husband, Dave, will make you feel right at home in the beautiful OCEAN ROMANCE dockside bed & breakfast yacht. Jean is the original B&B owner and has spent the last 7 years refitting the yacht to its current condition.
