A Cozy And Classic Hatteras 43' Yacht In One Of The Best James River Locations

Waterfront Property with kitchen and balcony
Note: If chosen nights not available check out my other boat the GiaMaria. The "Cookie B" is a 43' Hatteras yacht sporting a 12' x16' main salon with designer carpets, a sound system, a 40" TV, an antique Coca Cola table and chair set and a new sleeper sofa, installed Nov 2020. Her galley/kitchen is outfitted with a state of the art induction cook-top, cookware and red retro appliances, including a 3/4 sized fridge, coffee pot and toaster,. The master stateroom sports new carpets and 10" memory foamed mattresses and pillows that have been topped with quality linens and coverlets. The re-decorated master bathroom has been equipped with a silent flush Jabsco electric toilet, light fixtures, floor coverings and paint. Outside, the "Cookie B" has a covered stern deck that is just the ticket just right for morning coffee or evening drinks. There is a large bow deck for enjoying a sunny day or starry evenings, and there is not a more beautiful view of the James to be had whether looking east or west. It can be beyond peaceful on nights when hoot owls call to one another from across the narrow channel on Hatcher's island. And because we are moored in a shallow oxbow of the original James River (the part where Chief Powhatan, Pocahontas, Captain John Smith, President Lincoln, the Marquis de Lafayette, Benedict Arnold, and so many other notables passed within a few feet of your bow, it is easy to visualize those folks, those times, and those events that have shaped our country right here where you will be sitting. But there is another bonus to where the "Cookie B" is docked, and that is, there is never any commercial traffic, or rough water because we are protected on all four sides from heavy winds and storms. To get here is also a treat because you will enter the property by way of Hoke Brady, a National Park Service road, then continue on through a coded gate and travel for a short time past some beautiful farmland. Then as you descend the hill to the marina, you will pass a sign that says 4 1/2 MPH where you will get your first long glimpse of the beautiful James River. But be careful in the park because wildlife is everywhere, and so might be a park police radar. There is so much here to explore and enjoy in our little "piece of heaven" that it is difficult to know what to describe. Our ice is free as is our lighted parking lot which is videoed 24/7 and in view of the "Cookie B". So come and enjoy, you will not be disappointed.

5/5 Excellent

Unique and delightful
We enjoyed staying at Captain Ron's property. The sunrise from the bow of the boat was beautiful. Would recommend.

5/5 Excellent

Cozy adventure
We had a lovely time on the boat! Captain Ron was kind and very knowledgeable about the local history. We should have brought bait to go fishing. It was a quiet location and we were cozy!! Definitely recommend.

4/5 Good

Life is Good on the water!
We so much enjoyed this unique experience! Captain Ron is such a knowledgeable and gracious host! Can't blame him that with 1.5 days of heavy rain and the James River rising to its highest level in 20 years, we had to have help leaving the boat as most of the docks were underwater and our gang plank no longer was connected to our dock. A bit scary but with the help of a much younger man sent by the host, we got onto dry land! What an adventure!

5/5 Excellent

MV Cookie B Did Not Dissapoint
We truly enjoyed our stay on the Cookie-B. She is a mature vessel but was extremely comfortable and we both enjoyed exploring both on-board and around the local area. Captain Ron is a most gracious host and has a story to tell about any subject! I'll be looking to book again for our next trip to Richmond.

2/5 Poor

OK, BUT . . .
Staying on a boat was a new experience and I enjoyed it. Owner was gracious and kind. Condition of boat was poor. Quite run down. Needs painting and general maintenance. Windows discolored and inoperative. Walls stained. Stair railings loose and didn’t feel safe. Cushions racked, faded, etc. grand ma’s furniture. BUT I still enjoyed it. Poor value for the $$$
