Paul & Angela Smith and their long time friends Craig Bayhi, and David & Marjorie Lowell purchased 'Unplugged' as their second boat to offer for rent after experiencing how fabulous Miami is with the amazing marinas in South Florida and the Keys. The couples all met in Florida and love to spend time in the tropical splendor of Southern Florida.

perfect price, location & value for my needs

perfect price, location & value for my needs
  • 4 out of 5
I booked Yacht Rock because it was across the street from the hotel where a business event was being held. We had 2 good sized rooms and an excellent meeting location for less than the price of a single room at the hotel. The weather didn't make it easy on us, but I will say even in 20mph winds and severe thunderstorms, I slept like a baby and barely noticed any movement in the boat.

Alex, the first mate, was helpful, though I didn't really need him for anything.

I have 2 complaints about the boat - 1 of them being my own fault... I didn't bring my own water, drinks, K-cups, etc. I knew it wasn't a hotel but failed to realize a vacation rental didn't come pre-stocked with some of these things (I will know for next time I book this boat with my family).

The other complaint was the bridge/stairs used to board the boat. There was a latch or something off there and when it was high tide they didn't transition to stairs as it should, which made it difficult to board the boat in a hurry while raining. I had my hands full and went to catch myself with the railing bar, which popped out of place. Fortunately I didn't fall. The boat on the other side of the dock seemed to have the same system which functioned properly.

With that said, I would love to stay on the boat again and bring my family with me next time.

"Best week ever!"

"Best week ever!"
  • 5 out of 5
My family of 5 (3 kids ages 5,9,11) stayed on Unplugged for Spring Break. Upon boarding, my very opinionated 11 year old declared "this is going to be the best week ever!". And so it was... We went to the beach across the street, had lunch at Eden Roc & a dip in the pool, chartered a captain to take us up river to Casablanca's for dinner, dove in the water at the sand bar, snorkeled among statues, ate a fabulous dinner at Joe's Stone Crab, took the dinghy to the park across the river to climb the most amazing banyan tree, and enjoyed awesome people watching while having cocktails on the top deck. The boat was more than comfortable for all of us, and with a full size fridge, we were able to eat breakfast, lunch & snacks on board. We drove down and while we initially parked in the hotel lot (for $40/night) we ended up finding a public lot a block or so north for $10/day (though we had to feed the meter daily). The only time we used our car was for one big grocery trip, that's what I call a good vacation!!

Friendly Staff....

  • 3 out of 5
Hats off to Alex and Paul for resolving our issues in a timely manner. When we arrived the boat had a strong smell of diesel fuel in the cabin. Paul handled it very well by offering another boat or a complete refund if we weren't satisfied. Within an hour mechanics were onboard and they fixed the leaking fuel filters and rinsed the bilge. The smell was still very strong so they returned and did additional bilge cleaning the next day.
The location was perfect for the Miami Boat Show, travelers more interested in the Art Deco District will need to take a bus or taxi. Look at the map for details.
Like any older boat this one could use some updating. The seat cushions reflect the age of the craft as does the Gelcoat on the exterior. The Bimini Top is missing but that is clearly shown in the listings pictures.
Overall we had a fun time on Unplugged. Paul's friend Randy took us for boat rides around the Indian River on his dingy giving us a great view of the other boats. I have plenty of fond memories of our trip and appreciate everyone's hospitality.

Perfect location for Miami weekend!

  • 5 out of 5
I just returned from a fabulous stay on Yacht Rock. All in all, I highly recommend this boat for its amenities, uniqueness, and proximity to all the places you want to be in Miami!! The boat was ideal for the three of us but I could see it being perfect for 1-2 couples also. The boat features a covered deck area with a table for 6, which was great for whenever we wanted a bit of shade. We spent much time lounging on the flat front deck. It was absolutely perfect for sunbathing and our happy hour cocktails! The bed I slept in was incredibly comfortable. In addition to the comforts of the boat, I was very impressed with the location. We were just steps away from Eden Roc, Fountainebleu, and other resorts. We had a great lunch at the pool of the Fountainebleu. Even if you go just for a drink, it is worth seeing! The Eden Roc is great too and offers a great poolside menu. The location of the boat is also perfect for close beach access. We were very happy to be close to both the beautiful resorts AND the beach. It made for a wonderful experience.

Very nice boat, not a good location.

  • 2 out of 5
Robert C:s description below is pretty accurate. We had also booked the boat when it was located in the old marina, and it is difficult to see how the new location could be better. I would stress the fact the boat is located just a few meters from a heavily trafficked and noisy 6 lane road and that the location is not what you generally call a marina. It’s perhaps not as bad as one might think as the outdoor part of the boat is not facing the road, but still I do not think the description of the location is fair as it indicates a pretty tranquil environment. Note also that the pictures of/from the boat is not taken from it’s current location, but from the previous location in the marina. To be honest, I hate that sort this sort of thing, people that carefully plan their vacation and travel from the other side of the world deserves to have an accurate and honest description of what it is they are renting. On that note, contrary to what the description says, this boat it cannot be taken out for charter, at least that was what we were told. On the positive side, it’s a clean, nice and supercosy boat. We were 2 adults and 3 kids for 9 nights. It worked, but I would recommend 4 people or less. We had some technical difficulties, but Rochelle and her husband that takes care of the boat arrived promptly and fixed the problems. I would rent this again only if the location were a marina or some less busy place and/or closer to the AD district. So to sum it up: + nice boat, + Rochelle and her husband that takes care of the boat and the guests are wonderful people, + close to beach, – not a nice location due to the road. Lot’s of minus for that the pics and the description does not accurately reflect the location. If this were not the case my review would have been more positive, because after all we had a nice time.

Owner's Response: Mats
Despite your demeanor and rude behavior to my staff I am glad you had a good time during your visit to my yacht. Google maps is very easy to use and very clearly shows the location at the Fontainebleau Marina.
The five star properties of the Fontainebleau, Eden Roc and SoHo House and the marinas of the properties are all located on Collins Ave.
Collins Ave on South Beach from 4000 block to 6,000 block is the only street and is referred to as "Millionaire's Row," due to the nicest resorts, condos, yachts and mansions located in the area. The private deck on the yacht overlooking Indian Creek and multi-million dollar mansions is a great sunset view that most guests find to be a superior location.

As you can clearly see on Google maps the yacht is within easy walking distance to the beach and your choice three of Miami Beaches, 5 star resorts, and twenty-plus restaurants. I elect to have full disclosure and a pin on Google maps so guests may determine exactly where the yacht is located.

Your family was very nice to my staff and apologetic about your temper and attitude...hope you can return to south Beach in the future but not at on one of my Yachts.

Something different with a but...

  • 3 out of 5
We booked our stay on this boat with friends of ours and the experience was generally good, but there are a few significant buts that you need to consider.
The best aspect (and I think what we had in mind when we booked) was sitting on the rear deck relaxing with a nice selection of food and drink. If this sounds like your idea of fun and you like being on the water it is very nice. The owner was fine in our dealings with him, the boat was clean and we were also granted a late checkout for free so from this perspective there were no issues.
The negatives if you are thinking of booking this is that boats are small. I am 6'2'' and I pretty much filled the shower. Storage space is also at a premium, though the beds were a reasonable size.
The biggest negative for us though was the location. When we booked the boat was located at the South Beach marina, but shortly before our trip the boat was relocated to the Fontainebleau marina (we were given the option of a refund, but it was very close to our departure). This isn't really a marina and you are moored along side the main road opposite the Fontainebleau Hotel. There are no amenities near by unless you pay (or bluff) your way into the hotels. There is expensive parking in the hotels or there is a public car park a couple of blocks away as $1 per hour during the day, though you can get hit with a $20 charge if you arrive after 6.00pm. The road is very busy and loading / unloading bags is an issue.
There is a security gate as per the description, but in reality this would not thwart anyone that wants to get aboard. The boat is air-conditioned, but we had to open the windows as the smell of fumes from the pump motor was a little unpleasant.
Finally, walk to the beach is straight through the hotels, but if you want to go to South Beach you need to drive or get a cab.
