The Rum Runner is a 66-foot motor sailing schooner. Built in 1984, and with a nearly indestructible fiberglass hull,
The boat will accommodate up to 16 guests in twin and 4-share cabins.
With the berths in each cabin set up single bunk style, as typical for anyone familiar with sailboats, the cabins are not spacious or very private.they are for resting and sleeping only. However the common area includes a dining area and both covered and open decks.
Overall, Rum Runner is a comfortable sailboat. Well suited for adventurous divers and further more fantastic value but is by no means a luxury liveaboard boat. Those seeking privacy and luxury should consider trips on other vessels.
During your time on the boat there are USB and 240V AC outlets for charging cameras. and Hot water in both separate Male and Female Toilet – Shower cubicles.
