According to The Yachtsman Hotel & Marina Club’s online literature, “visiting … Kennebunkport, Maine, and not staying directly on the water would be a bit like eating pancakes without real maple syrup,” and to that end, it appears they’ve put their money where their mouth is. July 2020 saw the launch of the SS Sundaze, the hotel’s private pool boat. Built by Performance Marine and Christman Pool Service (Performance Marine owner Dwight Raymond actually assembled the vessel right in his front yard), this floating oasis provides guests the chance to overload on water views. Pops of bright yellow from Louise Hurlbutt’s deck furniture add serious La Dolce Vita vibes. Summer don’t end!
