The space

At the heart of Philadelphia yet miles removed. Retreat to the sanctuary that is the Paragon and dart back into the city at your pleasure. This is a truly unique experience.

***Winter booking***
Please be aware that with the previously abnormally cold days, the ambient water temp drops which means the water sourced heat pumps cannot generate enough heat and as such, there are 3 space heaters on-board which offset the water sourced heat pumps. Temp is kept to 75 degrees and you can adjust them up or down if needed. Please do not turn on the water sourced heat pumps as they will be damaged.

Guest access

You have full access to the docked ship as well as parking.

Welcome aboard!

You are on a boat that has all the fit and finishes of a condo and then some. Please be careful with yourself and the boat. Mindful of your fellow neighbors and enjoy your stay!

Please take any heels, wedges, hard soled shoes off prior to getting on the boat. These will damage the steps / decks.
Entering the boat you will need open the transom and see the cabin door, turn the key to the left and the lock moves sideways (towards the left) to unlock. Please be sure to take the keys with you whenever you leave the boat and lock it behind you as you would your house.

The streaming radio has bluetooth which you can stream to.
There is a printer in the aft cabin for you to use if needed.
Amazon fireTV with hulu, amazon prime etc is setup on the living room TV on HDMI1.

You will also find toiletries, towels, bedding and a hairdryer in the aftcabin as well as an ironing board (located in the cabinet to the right of the TV in the living room)

Very Important:
Since this is a boat it has holding tanks for water and waste water.
Please do not run the water/ shower aimlessly and do not dispose of anything more than toilet paper down the toilet (no feminine, male or hygienic products) It will damage the systems and that will be expensive.

When using the lavatories you will simply push down with your foot for up to three seconds and the vacuum flush will take care of the rest. if for some reason it sticks, simply lift the same lever up until there is no sound and some water is in the bowl. You might hear the AC kick on or water pumps go on. all these are muffled and are normal noises. Same for the buffeting of water or the stretching of mooring lines.

If you decide to access the front deck please be sure to hold a rail and have proper footing. You do not want to fall off the boat and you assume all risks associated while holding me harmless and indemnifying of any damage incurred by your actions.
Please also do not attempt to play with the helm, disconnect mooring lines or start the boat under any circumstances. No heels or hard soled shoes on the side or front deck. No undeclared guests/parties
and please keep the boat as you found it.
If you do open a port hole (window) please make sure to close it when leaving.

There are three zones for air conditioning you will see a control panel in each bedroom as well as in the living room.

Please remove trash when departing.

P.s. this is the house rules document. Not the house manual which you see in your confirmed reservation.

We've been wanting to stay on this amazing yacht for about 2 years and are so happy we finally had the chance to do so. We loved the sound system, the comfort of the beds, the cleanliness of the same and the beautiful view of the Ben Franklin Bridge. We were completely delighted to meet Vivid, who greeted us and showed us around. Thank you both!!

Such a nice place to stay! It was a great experience to stay on a yacht. My girls trip rocked. We were so close to Downtown. Mostly everything was walking distance.

What a unique airbnb in such a picturesque Philadelphia location! With Dave & Buster's right next door, Yards Brewing Company a short walk away, and plenty more easily accessible by Uber, this airbnb has it all. The beds were much more comfortable than we expected for being on a boat! Jonathan was very responsive prior to, as well as throughout our stay, and we would definitely stay again!

It was a fun, comfortable and very unique experience ! The boat was very clean, as described and with everything you may need. It is very well located, a few minutes walking distance from Old City which is an amazing place of Philadelphia. View of the bridge at night is breathtaking. Communication with Jonathan was excellent. Our stay was perfect, from the beginning till the end. If you are hesitating, do not hesitate anymore, this experience has to be done ! I highly recommend this place.

Jonathan User ProfileJonathan is a superhost.

Philly... nothing quite like it. Chinatown is part of center city and affords you a trip within a trip. From food to art to a different lifestyle. A few blocks down is the financial district and the high end shopping and dining of Rittenhouse. Half a block away is the convention center followed by the Reading Terminal market. A few blocks in the other direction is the birthplace of the US. You will be hard pressed to find a better location!
