Electric heaters, Air conditioning, and fans are onboard. Also, the Delta breeze normally comes up in the afternoon to cool the area a bit from the hot summer sun. A coin-operated laundry room is near the dock and an In-Shape Tennis & Health Club (Pool, Spa, Tennis, Gym, Sauna, etc.) is located at the marina; fees are $16/day/person for non-members. Village West Marina is secure, very quiet and convenient. It is centrally located to all major Northern California visitor locations (Lake Tahoe, Gold Country, Skiing, Yosemite, San Francisco Bay Area, Carmel/Monterey), all within about 1 to 3 hours driving time. Skipper's Dream is a private vessel that is made available for nightly or weekly stays. If you're looking for a relaxing, fun time while staying at a convenient Stockton location on the California Delta, Skipper's Dream is for you. The vessel is protected by a gated, covered berth and is not permitted to leave the dock during your stay. You are welcome to bring your own ski boat and water toys (or rent them at various Delta locations) or fishing boat and equipment for a great time on the California Delta during the daytime and stay aboard this beautiful yacht at night. Your smaller boat may be launched at the marina launch ramp and kept at the guest dock for $0.75/ft./day. Or, if you prefer, just hang out at the marina and explore the vast California Delta and numerous surrounding regions. A large library of Visitor Information is maintained aboard the vessel. More
