Experience Boston from the unique perspective of your own floating house! Nestled in a protected marina in Boston Harbor, our houseboat is fully equipped with all the comforts and amenities of home!
The boat has baseboard heat and is completely insulated. It is toasty on the most inclement day. Imagine tucking into bed, watching the snow blanket the marina, while the water rocks you to sleep.
There is a master stateroom with a queen bed, two twin beds in a sleeping loft and a queen sized sofa bed for the living room. Additionally there is a full kitchen with a cook top, toaster, microwave and full sized refrigerator. We also have all the needed cups, plates, mugs and cutlery you will need. Off the kitchen is the bathroom, which is huge by boat standards. it has a full sized stand up shower, head and vanity/sink. These boats have 40 Gallon hot water tanks as well, so no worries about running out hot water after a few showers. We also run on shore power and water, so the water has great pressure and is unlimited (no water tank to refill)
We provide all linens and towels so there is no need to worry about laundry. We also provide plus an iron, ironing board, hairdryer, plus bathroom products such as soaps, shampoos, and lotions.. This houseboat is fully air-conditioned and heated for your comfort in any season. All this for less than the price of the smallest rooms at any of the nearby downtown waterfront hotels!
Located in a very secure and gated marina, our houseboat is just minutes away from downtown Bostons` most popular attractions; Fanueil Hall/Quincy Market, the North End, the New England Aquarium, the Children誰s` Museum and the Boston Convention Center via the included water taxi service. Our convenient location makes it easy for you reach points of interest along the waterfront, via water taxi service available at a discount, Public transportation, Uber and Lyft and regular cabs.

This marina is located in the up and coming East Boston Neighborhood of Boston. It is minutes away from the airport, and dozens of great restaurants and shops. There is a grocery store less than a half mile away, and a convenience store on the corner. We partner with Rowes Wharf Water Transport to provide a reduced rate water taxi service to the guests of our boats into Rowes Wharf in Downtown Boston. Our guests can utilize this service for $25/pp round trip. This quick 25 minute ride puts you right in the center of all there is to do in Boston. This stop drops you at the Aquarium, Fanueil Hall/Quincy Market and the North End. Our location in the actual working port of Boston affords our guests the unique perspective of the historic Boston Shipping Trade in action. Watch the drawbridge open from your roof deck as barges and tugboats pass by, supplying Boston and the Northeast with the needed commodities for commerce.
The boat is in a protected part of the marina, but there can be some occasional movement during the day when boats pass by. At night the waters are very calm and some guests even find that a bit of gentle swaying relaxes them and makes for a very restful sleep. The houseboat is berthed on a brand new floating 5 foot wide wooden dock, so its just one step up onto the boat's deck at any tide. The docks are lighted and very stable The dock is connected to the parking lot by a long ramp with handrails; this ramp can be a bit steep at maximum low tide (twice a day), but there are built in treads for climbing. The ramp can be difficult at the lowest tidal points for folks with difficulty walking. The good part is that the tide does go in and out, so the majority of the time it is at a 30 degree angle or less. Its a safe first nautical experience for people of all ages who have never been on a boat before.
After a long day of touring the city there is nothing better than being dropped off at your boat by the water taxi, stepping onto the deck and relaxing on your own private sun deck with a cold drink in hand, listening to the soothing sounds of the ocean as you enjoy the views, sights and sounds of Boston Harbor!

Located in the hip and unique Boston neighborhood of East Boston, our location gives our travelers a calming respite from the frenetic pace of Boston. The marina is located in a secluded cove that is used by boaters in the harbor as a shelter from any passing storms due to its geography allowing for very calm water. If you have a fear of becoming seasick while on board, you can be assured there is no calmer water in Boston. The boats may gently rock from passing boats, but we are completely protected from any incoming swells that buffet all of the other Boston Marinas.
Begin your adventure here on our boats, and continue it in Boston easily with multiple transportation options. We have parking included for one car with every rental, this spot is super close to the boat in the intimate marina. No worrying about hauling your luggage blocks to your boat on check in like other rentals in Boston. Additionally we have partnered with Rowes Wharf Water Transport, Bostons premier. water taxi company to offer a free scheduled water taxi service to all of our guests. This service will run at least three times daily, and will pick up directly at the marina and bring guests into either the Charlestown Navy yard (to begin walking the freedom trail and explore the USS Constitution) or to Rowes Wharf in the heart of Downtown Boston. Here you can explore the aquarium, Quincy Market/Fanueil Hall, or pick up the T (our subway system) and head anywhere in the city you want to explore.
