The Experience:

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 view of Boston's city skyline! So come join us and float all your cares away on a SleepAfloat managed houseboat!

Guestbook comments from the manager

The houseboat was fantastic! I really enjoyed being in that area of town and was able to walk to my conference at the World Trade Center in 25 minutes! Fanuiel Hall Marketplace was where I went for yummy food and shopping EVERY night! Such fun! Thanks for rocking me to sleep every night!

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay, and would definitely stay there again. The location is very handy for exploring this part of Boston, and the boat is much bigger than it appears in the photos. Having breakfast and dinner on the deck was a great experience and our hosts couldn't have been more helpful during our stay.

A memorable way to stay in Boston and great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay on the Taurus. It was a novel and very comfortable way to get away. We found ourselves wanting to get back to the boat, I don't recall ever feeling that way when staying in a hotel room. We will definitely do it again! Thank you for the memories!

Wonderful weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time aboard the Taurus! It's the perfect boat in a perfect location. I loved that you all provided coffee, shampoo, conditioner, towels and so on. The boat was very clean and David was there to help in any way he could. It was great having the city bikes Parked right outside Lewis wharf, we biked to a Sox game. Also, the mattresses were amazing, never slept better.

Awesome stay on Boston waterfront

  • 5 of 5

We were met by JJ, who provided top-notch service and a most welcoming arrival. He oriented us to the boat and provided us some insight about immediate places to eat. The boat itself was equipped with everything we needed, and it was a fun and unique experience to stay there. It felt very safe and was quiet, as well as relaxing. Would highly recommend it for a different experience that is uniquely positive!
