Overview

Providence House Boat Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 4. 2 Bedrooms 2 Bathrooms

Sleep Aboard is Rhode Island's exclusive houseboat rental company located in Providence, RI. Our Providence fleet numbers 4 unique boats and we specialize in offering a unique overnight experience as an alternative to drab hotels. Visit for additional pictures, video tour of the yacht and company information.

You are currently looking at Brasil - your own private 61 foot yacht in downtown Providence. This is an upgrade from a regular houseboat which we also offer. Our 61 foot yacht is conveniently located in downtown Providence just a stone’s throw from Brown University, Waterfire, the East side and Davol Square. Our marina is also host to three major Providence hot spots for dinning and nightlife including the Whiskey Republic, Lola’s and The HOT CLUB.

We offer an alternative to conventional hotels in the local providence area by offering overnight stays aboard our fully furnished, 61 foot motoryacht. Our yacht, a Geerd Hendel 61, was custom built for a member of the DuPont family and is available to select customers for single to multi-night stays.

Our yacht provides a floating experience aboard a well appointed motoryacht. Our yacht offers the following features:

• Sun-Filled 3rd Level Salon with 360 degree views of the city

• Full Deck area perfect for barbeques

• Master Bedroom complete with Queen Size Bed and full bathroom

• Fully functional kitchen with mini- fridge/freezer, 4-burner stove and oven

• Guest quarters including 2 twin beds and separate full bathroom (hammock and inflatable bed available in upper salon to accommodate 2-3 more people for overnight stays - additional $50 per extra guest, maximum 6 guests total)

• Private end- dock removed from the marina traffic and restaurants

We offer different rates depending on the season and depending on the occasion. Our standard summer rates reflect an occupancy of 4 people maximum for overnight stays. 6 people maximum could stay overnight with the additional cost of $50 per extra guest.

For guests looking to have a larger gathering, we offer a 'Function' rate which reflects having a larger crowd aboard. Function rates apply to parties where there are more than 8 visitors at any one time. Our yacht is also perfect for special functions including reunions, photo shoots for weddings and corporate events. Please ask about our special rate for larger functions of up to 20 guests. Due to the wear and tear on the boat and the increased water/electrical usage by having more people aboard, we also reflect that in the rate and appreciate your understanding in this matter. Please review our rates to see what fits your budget.

Included with each stay is overnight parking, all marina/dockage fees and cleaning services.

From all of us at Sleep Aboard, we look forward to having you aboard!

Please see Sleep Aboard and Marina Policies for additional information

About Neil Malik

My name is Neil Malik and I am the owner of Sleep Aboard. I have 35 years of boating experience including short-handed crossings of the North and South Atlantic Oceans (USA-Europe-Brazil). After so much extensive travel, my goal is to provide a very unique, different experience for my guests that will pale any hotel experience. As an ex-COO of an Inc 500 company, I recognize the needs of my customers and try as hard as possible to accommodate each and every guest.

Neil Malik purchased this house boat in 2011

Why Neil Malik chose Providence

Brasil is such a truly unique yacht. The lines of the boat originate from a period dating from the 1950's to early 1960's and the high, pointed bow and open stern transom are Geerd Hendel signatures. This design is pedigree as Geerd Hendel served as the draftsman for Star Burgess designing some of the most famous America's Cup boats in the 1930's and 1940's. A step inside and you are taken back to a time of classic yacht taste- no overornamentation or gaudy sofa fabrics. Instead, varnished battens, heavy use of teak and mahogany, and classic liners reflect a well appointed yacht.

AMAZING BIRTHDAY GET-TOGETHER!

  • 5 of 5

I booked the Brazil for a Saturday night surprise birthday party for my boyfriend. The owner, Neil, was very helpful throughout the entire process and allowed me to take a full tour of the yacht prior to my stay and offered help whenever I ran into him. I brought an electric grill as well and Neil helped me run an extension cord so I could operate the grill outdoors. The overnight parking lot is within walking distance and the marina is a short walk from many nighttime hotspots.

The yacht itself is very gorgeous and spacious. There were 20 people on board at one point (which is allowed with a special Function rate) and there was still more than enough space for everyone throughout the yacht. The scenery around the yacht is very different during the day and during the night, but both are equally breathtaking. It was a birthday party everyone will remember for sure. Thank you Neil for the lovely weekend!

Excellent Birthday Bash!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this yacht as a surprise for my boyfriends 27th birthday with some of our closest friends. It was perfect! Spectacular views, close to local bars and within walking distance of WaterFire. The yacht itself is beautiful and spacious. We had 4 guys and 4 girls and never felt cramped. Neil is awesome and super helpful when it comes to navigating the area. We will definitely be back! Thanks again, Neil!!! :-)

Adventure on a Boat

  • 5 of 5

The boat was a wonderful place to stay for our daughter's graduation. Moored in Providence River, it's a peaceful, unusual place to stay. Good sleeping in the comfortable cabins, rocked by the changing tide of the river. Nice kitchen, breakfast area. Great room to sit in and watch the sunset, city skyline, geese and swans. It's at the edge of the Marina--across from the power plant (beautiful brick building). You can hear the toots of the tugboats, a bit of music from the neighboring restaurant. The owner was very helpful, offering a full tour of the facility and available for calls. It's a close walk to shops and small restaurants (including a great breakfast place)--15 minute walk from the Brown campus. Comes with parking space (a premium in Providence!). I recommend it highly.

Best Birthday Gathering!

  • 5 of 5

I rented the Brazil for a night to have a surprise birthday celebration for my husband.

It was so great! The boat is perfect for a large group.There is plenty of room inside and outside on the boat,so it never felt cramped.It had all the amenities we needed -full kitchen,two bathrooms, two bedrooms,beautiful upper level and the best view! The location is ideal. Walk up the dock to some of the best restaurants and bars in Providence. Or take a short walk into downtown. Neil(owner) was wonderful to rent from, so accommodating. Thank you Neil for sharing your Brazil! This is by far one of the most unique, fun rentals. My husband and all our friends had a night we will always remember. We will be back!
