Amazing new addition to our fleet here in Boston, Bella-Raine is a brand new houseboat with every modern convenience you would expect to find in any high end home. Complete with stereo surround sound, granite counter tops, central heat and air, washer and dryer and a huge roofdeck with a wetbar, custom lighting, flat screen TV and bathroom.
With 3 private staterooms and two full bathrooms and the half bathroom on the roofdeck, your entire crew will have a place aboard. The master stateroom features a queen sized bed, huge closets, and plenty of windows to take in the view. There is an ensuite bath with toilet, sink/vanity and full size corner shower unit. The VIP stateroom contains a full size bed with closet and nightstand, while the bunk room has two twin sized bunks and closet. These two staterooms share the second full bathroom. In the main salon the sofa opens to a full/queen sized bed as well for even more sleeping options.
The fully applianced kitchen makes meal preparation easy. All the necessary cooking utensils, cutlery and dishes are provided, as well as pots and pans. There is bar seating and a dining area for the whole crew to enjoy a meal inside, but this will probably go completely unused once you see the MASSIVE roof deck beckoning you outside!
Atop the boat you will discover the oasis we have created that completely embodies the vacation experience. A partial hard top covers some of the deck for all weather enjoyment, while leaving most of the deck open to the Boston sunshine. Lounge chairs, a complete dining area, wet bar, surround sound, flat screen TV and mood lighting all but guarantee you will not want to leave the boat, but make sure you do as the best of Boston is steps from your retreat.
There is a great little grocery store about 1 block from the boat. They carry a full line of groceries, beer wine and liquor and any other necessities you may need. There is also a regular grocery store about ½ mile from the boat, as well as a larger liquor store, a bank, Subway restaraunt, a Dunkin Donuts. and many many great local restaurants.
We have 5 more boats in this same marina, so if this doesn't have the availability you need, please ask we may still be able to accommodate you.
If you would like to go out onto the water We have numerous connections with the local charter companies. We can help you to coordinate a charter on a private yacht for up to 10 guests, or tickets aboard a vintage sailboat touring Boston Harbor.
We provide all linens and towels so there is no need to worry about laundry plus an iron, ironing board, hairdryer, plus bathroom products such as soaps, shampoos, and lotions. We even include condiments and a Keurig coffee maker with a variety of coffee pods for your enjoyment. 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!
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.
After a long day of touring the city there is nothing better than 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 fantastic views.

Ryan/Deb purchased this House Boat in 2010
Why Ryan/Deb chose Chelsea
This houseboat is amazing and a sure crowd pleaser. If you have some folks on the fence about staying on a boat instead of a more traditional place, this will win them over! The boat has a ton of room both inside and outside so even filled to complete occupancy it doe not feel crowded
What makes this House Boat unique
This boat has enough beds and baths to make divvying up the living space easy for larger guests. No one will feel like they got the short end of the stick when given their sleeping assignment.

Fantastic accomodations, close to public transportation we didn't use our rental til we left town. Woud have avoided rental knowing it was sooo close to the airport. Great place to chill with a cocktail and watch the river go by.!!!
Fun and different
Nice place, and had a fun stay. Cool to hang out on upper deck for a nightcap. Hosts were helpful and responsive. Limited food options in the immediate area, but a short walk will get you to a few places, and downtown and north end are a short ride away.
My experience on Zephyr was very memorable. I was visiting Boston for a graduation ceremony and feared that I may be too far from downtown. However, I utilized the water taxi service which was only a short 10 minutes into town. I was able to save on parking and the stress of getting lost.
My expectations were met the moment I stepped on board. The property was extremely clean, comfortable, and affordable.
The team members including Ryan and Karina were also professional, knowledgeable, and accommodating.
