The Sea Pearl was a great place to lodge during our three days and nights in Boston. I was in town for a wedding with my four kids and a friend who flew in to help me manage them. We would have had to book two hotel rooms, which would've been very expensive for three nights. Staying on the yacht was not only more economical, it was much more fun! Jim was very helpful the first night in getting our stuff from the car to the boat and giving us a quick tour of the yacht. The beds were cozy, the kitchenette had everything we needed for simple breakfasts, and the location was very convenient to the things we took in (we water ferried to the Aquarium on day and drove to the science museum on another, taking the T from there to Quincy Market). Space heaters provided sufficient heat, and (though I was skeptical at first) the showers had plenty of warmth and water pressure! Jim and Deb have lots of good resources (both in emails and in the manual on the boat) that helped us find your way around the boat and make the most of our time in Boston. I'm sure my kids will remember the fun we had in Boston for the rest of their lives!
