Book Holiday Guests on The Floating Inn

If you have company coming for the holidays, why not give them the ultimate Gig Harbor lodging experience? Book them on the beautiful Floating Inn @ the Boatyard, our new guest yacht, the White Lion.

The stately Ponderosa 42 is our exciting new guest accommodation here at Gig Harbor Marina & Boatyard.  The spacious, two-stateroom White Lion stays moored on our B Dock and is the perfect floating home-away-from-home for your holiday guests this Christmas season. They will be right in the heart of downtown within easy walking distance to shops and restaurants between visits to your house.

“White Lion’s” enclosed sun deck affords beautiful harbor views for morning coffee or evening entertaining. A built-in wet bars makes it easy and convenient.

Guests on the White Lion get to enjoy relaxing mornings with coffee on the enclosed sun deck, and then unwinding in the evenings with wine and sunsets on the covered fly bridge. Both locations offer picturesque harbor views of kayaks and boats cruising by in front of you.

Custom-built White Lion features two luxurious staterooms, unique for a Ponderosa 42, each with a queen bed and its own full bathroom with shower. One bathroom also has a bathtub and both heads feature easy to use VacuFlush toilets. All bed linens and towels are provided for your convenience and comfort aboard this beautiful guest yacht.
