Boston house boat description

The Orion houseboat is a unique way to spend a weekend or a week in Boston. This fun and funky vessel is a 14' x 44' catamaran houseboat built in 1997. Docked right in downtown Boston at Lewis Wharf, this boat is within walking distance to all of the city's hotspots!

Features:

Master bedroom with queen bed
Main salon with sleeper sofa, and flatscreen TV. There is also an air mattress available for additional sleeping options.
Galley kitchen with refrigerator, microwave, sink, stove and oven.
Bathroom with stand up shower, toilet and vanity
HUGE rooftop deck with lounge furniture, electric grill and city views
Fully heated and air conditioned

Free Wifi

Transportation:

Short walk to Aquarium, Haymark, North Station and Government Center subway stations
Parking is $27/day at the marina

Location:

Conveniently located in the heart of downtown Boston, Lilypad is just steps away from the New England Aquarium, Quincy Market/Faneuil Hall, the North End, Boston Garden, a large outdoor neighborhood swimming pool, a free tennis court, a public ice skating rink, and countless other things to see and do. Parking is also available for $27/day cash at the marina.

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!
