When mistress after mistress came out of the–cough–woodwork, Tiger Woods reportedly took to the high seas on Privacy, his multimillion dollar yacht with the ironic name.
To the Average Joe, such an escape is reserved for celebs of Tiger’s caliber, folks with mints for bank accounts (and paparazzi stalking their every move). But vacationing on a sailboat can be affordable, and if you don’t believe it, just check out the San Diego vacation rental above.
The 47-foot Beneteau sailboat on Harbor Island is an understated beauty surrounded by the real gem: the glistening San Diego Harbor. The price point surprises most: $1,000 a week. With a galley kitchen and access to the Marina’s pool, jacuzzi and barbecue area, the lodging appeals to budget travelers seeking luxe experiences, like sitting down with five of your best friends in the salon, then moving the party upstairs for cocktails at sunset.
Ask nicely, and the owners can even arrange private sailing lessons or harbor cruises.
See, you don’t have to be Tiger Woods to be treated to a VIP experience. Not that you would want to be him anyway.
