shantycraft real florida vacation

Want to see the Real Florida?

I would like to share a little information about the greatest vacation or getaway to be had if you like nature and the water. Check out the Talisa.

Talisa is a custom designed and built shanty boat with a forward double cabin, a port- a-potty, galley with two burner gas stove/sink and an Igloo Cooler, two seat dinette and a single aft cabin that will sleep one adult or a couple small children. The forward 4’x6′ sundeck provides outdoor lounging and place to lay back and observe a spectacular view of the stars at night.

With the designed feel of days gone by, Talisa is simple and functional. Powered by a Tahatsu 9.8 4-Stroke gas outboard, fuel consumption is minimal at speeds conducive to taking in the sights. Explore the ‘off the beaten path’ waters where few have the privilege of seeing and listen to the sounds of life!

My son, his wife and I took a 3 day journey aboard The Talisa last May and it was simply amazing. Michael, the owner and host, was so helpful in every way, and made us feel totally at home with everything, including teaching us how to drive the boat, and after we were comfortable he sent us on our way. We explored a river where we literally saw not one other person for more than 24 hours. It was exactly what we were looking for and so enjoyable. Of course, you can stay on the main waterways too, if you so desire. We will be doing this again soon and are looking forward to it. You can see a lot more information and pictures on his web site. These pics are just a couple of the many we took while aboard Talisa. Enjoy!
