The Vessel
Closer view of my boatMy yacht is a 48ft LOA Sea Ray Express Bridge Cruiser. Her hull design is well suited for familiesí unfamiliar with Southern California near shore waters. Her bow is a Deep-Vee for smooth cruising through calm or choppy water. Her stern is fairly flat for the greatest measure of stability.

She is in excellent condition and accommodates 6 adults plus myself very comfortably.

She's powered by twin Caterpillar Diesel inboards, equipped with Ray Marine GPS, Chart Plotter, Auto Pilot and Radar, Compass, VHF Marine Radio, Stereo and a Halon Automatic Fire Detection System plus many extras.

She is insured, well maintained, cleaned regularly and meets or exceeds all USCG Safety Regulations for Sea Worthiness.

Her name is "Great Faith".


Client families may choose from the following public docks for boarding:

  • Downtown Shoreline Marina, near Parkers Lighthouse, Long Beach.
  • Alamitos Bay Marina, in front of Khourys and Busters Restaurant.
  • Huntington Harbor Marina, in front of the Huntington Harbor Yacht Club.

Other arrangements may be made upon request. More about my burials at sea service...
