“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off those bowlines………………. Explore, Dream, Discover.”

-Mark Twain

Why yNaut

We want your yNaut boating experience to be like having your best friend take you out on their nice big boat and they do all the work.  Everyone know what is better than owning a boat…….it’s HAVING A FRIEND WITH A BIG BOAT! (Does that work for you?) We are NOT a massive “3 Hour Tour,” stand in line, take a number, go through the buffet line boat excursion.  All you do is book your charter or excursion, show up with a group of six or fewer people, BYOB “adult beverage”  (due to OLCC laws we can not sell alcohol), and let us take the helm and do the rest! You just sit back and enjoy the ride. Choose a gourmet cheese tray or let me know what catering selections you would like.  So don’t be disappointed years from now,  and just “throw off those bowlines” while you “Experience Boating at its Best!” Things are just better on a boat, it’s as simple as that.  

It’s all about the boat and being on the water! It energizes the spirit and calms the soul at the same time; it’s truly a beautiful thing. Experience this feeling while cruising down the river in style on your private/semi-private chartered boat/ excursion while you take in the beauty of the Pacific Northwest on Willamette or Columbia rivers. Time on a yNaut boat is like a mini vacation on the water.  For me, being on a boat is like being on my own floating sanctuary.  It’s my happy place and I want to share experience with you. (Can you tell I’m a little passionate about boating?)  Plus, boating just bonds people in a unique way.

Our mission at yNaut is to navigate a worry free boating day for you! 

In addition to cruises around the Portland area, consider a charter to such destinations as St. Helens, Oregon, Cathlamet, Washington and even Astoria, Oregon on the Columbia River!  On a yNaut charter or excursion, the journey will be the destination as well. Contact me, Kim Nethercott, and we will chart your way to great boating experience and destination of your choice.
