CABIN 2: Starboard side forward, featuring a queen-sized berth, large opening hatch overhead, 2 large closets and 2 beside shelves. (Cabins 1 & 2 are equivalent in the layout.) A private bathroom and shower/small tub adjoin.

CABIN 3: starboard side aft, a queen size berth, large opening hatch overhead, dresser, and vanity. Adjoining, is a private bathroom.

If you have ever wanted to sleep under the stars, Rubicon's trampolines also offer spacious star-spangled sleeping quarters.

Headroom in Cabins: 73"
Headroom in Salon: 75.5"

RUBICON has a new Honda 2000 watt generator that runs the A/C all night at anchor! However, it really only sufficiently cools the two fwd cabins OR the salon, so we can only offer A/C for two cabins. RUBICON also has a 2kw inverter and a 15 gph watermaker

The main salon seats 10 guests and crew. The cockpit table seats 8 guests and crew.

Rubicon also has trampoline awnings for the foredeck.

Option 4: Scheduled flights, sold by the seat, ideal for a small group are offered by the following carriers:

Rubicon is based at anchor at Stocking Island, a short dinghy ride across Elizabeth Harbor to Georgetown. When collecting guests, Rubicon has their favorite taxi man meet guests at the airport and he drives the guests to the local marina or dock where they are met by the crew. It works very well.

Green Initiatives
Make purified drinking water? Yes Re-usable water bottles Yes
Other Green Initiatives Rubicon has charcoal filtered Reverse Osmosis water which is high quality, and avoids all those plastic bottles. Rubicon has re-usable Tervis tumblers (instead of bottles) with a different marine animal on each one so easily identifiable. If you wish to "go green" and help the environment you are welcome to turn off the A/C and experience the breezes from the tradewinds as with open hatches and electric fans they are usually quite sufficient to keep you cool.
