About Paul Smith

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.

Paul Smith purchased this boat in 2013

Just as advertised with some updates needed, overall fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a fantastic ladies getaway vacation on Unplugged. We had plenty of room and relaxation time. Just a short walk to the beach and use of a fabulous resort made it the perfect location. We had an easy time using uber to get to south beach and the grocery trip on day one to stock up the full sized fridge. We saved money cooking most of our meals. The first mate, Laz, was always quick to respond if we ever had questions or concerns. He was always very helpful and attentive to our vacation needs.

The yacht is well kept and stocked with enough towels for the length of our stay. The temp inside stayed cool and was very welcoming after a hot day at the beach. We enjoyed our coffee and tea sitting at the back of the boat while watching other yachts sail by leaving the inlet for their day out at sea. The kureg machine now has a Kcup so the next guest can bring their own coffee to brew like we did. You're welcome ;)

I would highly recommend this as a vacation destination! The price is right and the experience is priceless! We had a blast! It was private, quiet and so relaxing. I don't know why anyone would use a hotel ever again.

It was an experience.

  • 2 of 5

The property owner claimed that there were two pull outs in the property. That was not true because the fifth person had to sleep on a couch that did not pull out at all. The wifi did not work. We had to ask the people in the boat next to us about using their wifi. The owner was very rude and acted as though we were bothering him. It was not as bad as I was expecting but I would not do it again. I would not recommend this property to anyone.

Owner's Response: Neneh We are surprised with your two star review.We accommodated your early check in request,provided an inflatable bed ,accommodated your many request including a very late check out and you did not let the first mate know of any issues.The internet was activated (cell based) with clear instructions it was for sending and receiving emails ,text,etc. and would not support streaming videos. The $50 of time was almost immediately consumed by streaming of video content.

exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for what we needed. Check where it is on the map before you book; Miami beach is longer than you think (if you're like me and never been there before). There is a Citi Bike station right by the marina as well which we used to get everywhere. Great day just sitting on boat deck relaxing by the water too. There is a restaurant/bar across the street in the 5555 Collins Ave condo building, Lola's I think it was, good food, reasonably priced. Neither of us got seasick even though there was occasional wakes rocking the boat. I would do this again. Would be great for two couples as well.

The best way to vacay on SoBe

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time I'd booked a boat instead of a hotel in Miami, and after this I'm never going back to the hotels. When you think the cost of renting this two berth boat is less than the cost of two rooms in most of the hotels in the area, it's a no-brainer. It's got all the amenities you need, and is moored in a lovely stretch of water, but close enough to the action with a 5 min cab ride.

The back deck is a huge plus, with amazing views. Whether it was sitting there relaxing in the morning with a coffee, or pre-gaming with a bottle of wine in the evening before heading out in to Miami, we spent most of our awake time on the boat out there.

I'd certainly recommend this to anyone, and I'll definitely be back!

Awesome FL escape!

  • 5 of 5

Mt family spent 9 days aboard Unplugged and absolutely LOVED IT! The boat is cozy, and although we are a family of 5, it slept us all well in 2 bedrooms and on the inflatable bed in the roomy salon. We loved waking every morning to the sights and sounds of the local rowing teams gliding down Indian Creek. The sunsets over the mansions across the way were unbelievable! The kitchen is nicely equipped with a Kuerig Coffee Maker, toaster oven, full-size refrigerator and microwave. I think there's a stove-top, but we didn't use it. The condos across the street from Carriage Tennis Club has a nice little market with awesome Cuban coffee & fresh empanadas. Groceries were easy to pick up and carry back to boat. We used the City Bikes a lot-- there's a rack just South of the boat on the Indian Creek side of Collins. Taxis & Uber were also easy to get if you specify that you're in between the 5400 & 5300 block on Collins-- on the Southbound sidewalk. The front deck has 4 large, comfy all-weather bean bag chairs that are perfect for sunbathing. The back deck has a nice dining table, chairs and bar area-- where we enjoyed sunsets & cocktails each night before heading out to Miami's amazing restaurants. We'll definitely be back and recommend to anyone who loves a little adventure, beautiful views, and the vibrant Miami scene. Thanks for a great time!

perfect price, location & value for my needs

  • 4 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.
