    The Area

    Life on the delta is slow paced, laid back and casual, a throwback to the way things used to be. The clock seems to run slower here and that's why the locals call it "Delta Time." Relish your Delta Time before you have to leave it behind and return to reality. Lounge in the cockpit in the morning and enjoy your favorite coffee and a bagel or pastry before heading out to explore the area. Later, if there are clouds visible in the western sky, return to the boat to enjoy the spectacular evening sunset over Mt. Diablo. The Garlic Brothers restaurant patio located at the marina is a fantastic place to view the sunset.

    What's special about this boat

    A beautiful Yacht, a reasonable price and Location, Location, Location - At The Heart Of Northern California, the yacht is within 1-3 hours of most all destinations such as Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, Sacramento, San Francisco, Silicon Valley and Monterey.

    If you love the water, the California Delta is a recreational wonderland. It is a fresh water vacation paradise consisting of navigable waterways located at the confluence of the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers, where those rivers flow through the Carquinez Strait from the Central Valley into San Pablo and San Francisco Bays and the Pacific Ocean. The 1000+ miles of waterways are contained by large levies that prevent the water from invading the vast parcels of below sea level, reclaimed farm land, some of the most fertile on earth. The boundaries are roughly Pittsburg on the West, Sacramento to the Northwest and Stockton to Tracy to the Southwest.

    The area is midway between Lake Tahoe to Yosemite on the East and San Francisco to Monterey on the West. Easily visit any Northern California location during a day trip while staying aboard Skipper's Dream. Or, spend your days exploring and playing on the The Delta, as it is commonly called.
