The Capt Gabby is a 42-foot wooden trawler hand-built in St. Augustine, FL in 1977. Over the years, she made her way up the coast and landed in Valona, Georgia.
She has had many adventures and is eager for many more. The Capt Gabby has a whole new outlook on life after being lovingly converted into a mothership that can sleep 6 guests and up to 3 crew members.
<With a well-equipped galley, the crew can prepare all your meals on board. Enjoy your food with an incredible view from our rooftop deck or as a picnic lunch while out exploring for the day.
A large wooden platform off the stern of the Capt Gabby is perfect for swimming, launching kayaks, or fishing.
What's in a name?
The late, great Captain Gabby himself
Our boat was named after Herbert Walker, A.K.A. Captain Gabby. He passed away about 10 years ago. We bought the boat with the name already intact and did not have any interest in changing it after learning what a beloved character Gabby was. He was born on Sapelo Island and worked on many a shrimp boat over the years. Heck, folks loved him so much they named a boat after him!
