BOSTON'S ORIGINAL B&B AFLOAT: BEST LOCATION, CLOSE TO ATTRACTIONS

Boston Yacht Rental Photos and Description

Yacht, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

If you are looking for an absolutely unique and romantic B&B experience to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, engagement, or wedding, the Golden Slipper awaits! It is an ideal romantic getaway for two, but also a fun adventure for four. Two private staterooms are offered with plenty of privacy for both couples, and room to relax on the yachts front and aft decks.

The Golden Slipper, Boston’s B&B “Afloat” is a traditional Catalina Chris Craft. The 40’ Yacht is located at Lewis Wharf, in the heart of historical Boston. The boat stays moored at the slip and you come and go as you please. This is a private party yacht accommodating up to six guests, with a continental breakfast left for you. Cruises of Boston Harbor and dinners are available upon request, during your stay.

The Golden Slipper offers the unique experience of having a Bed and Breakfast, with the opportunity to cruise Boston Harbor, for a day or sunset cruise. You return to your slip, the innkeepers leave, and you continue to enjoy your yacht for the rest of your visit.

In addition to the two private staterooms, the main salon accommodates 2 more people on a double berth sofa. This layout is perfect for a family vacation, reunion, or “girls' getaway”. The business traveler can enjoy a unique, comfortable setting, as well, and entertain clients with a sunset dinner cruise.

Guest comments from all over the world describe the Golden Slipper as a very positive experience, and a unique getaway in a very urban setting. Our guests love our fabulous location, within walking distance to many historic attractions. Escape to the boat for peaceful moments of relaxation on the aft deck, enjoying excellent views of the busy Boston Harbor. In the evening be rocked to sleep with a gentle motion, and wake up to coffee and muffins on the deck, greeting a new day in historical Boston Harbor.

We look forward to welcoming you on board!!

Guestbook comments from the manager
A big fat thumbs up to experiencing Boston by staying in a boat house, especially one as nice as this with a homely feel, conveniently placed for all the historical areas of Boston (North End, Little Italy, not too long a walk to Boston Common Park).



The adventure started with a water taxi ride from the airport straight to the boat, which was very handy as well as fun with all the suitcases we had!



Gretchen, the owner, was ever so helpful with recommendations on where to eat, how to get places and attractions nearby.



A million thanks to her, this stay was special and I would do it again and again!

What a treat!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I happened to book this boat because all the hotels in Boston were over-priced due to the graduation season. But it ended up making our vacation very special. Regardless of our early morning arrival due to our red-eye flight, the owners, Jack and Gretchen, tried their best to welcome us as early as possible. The boat was located at a gated dock, it was very safe and was close to the Little Italy (the famous Italian neighborhood), Haymarket, and T-stations. The interior space of the boat was very cozy and adventurous as if we were kids again. We brought back great Italian food and wine to enjoy our romantic dinner at the rear deck sitting area. Due to our booking schedule, we had to stay at a Back Bay hotel on the last night in Boston. On a big couch in the hotel room, my husband sighed, "Ah, I wish we were sitting at the boat deck now." We both know that we would book the boat every time we visit Boston from now on.
