Property description

Try something different for your Boston travels this year. Our houseboat Zephyr a restored 1969 aft cabin classic yacht. You enter in through a completely glassed in helm station. Sun-warmed during the day, this space can be completely opened up at night to capture the cool ocean breeze. There is a bar top table and stools for enjoying a moment up top during sunset.

Following the companionway below deck, you enter into the main salon. Mahogany walls, oriental style rug and recently renovated floors greet you as you enter. The room is furnished with two reclining leather club chairs, a sleep sofa, and a 42' flat panel TV.

Going forward you enter into a small galley kitchen with microwave, cooktop, toaster-oven and a mini fridge. The kitchen area has plenty of storage space and all the cookware and tableware you will need to prepare a home cooked meal. Opposite the kitchen is the dinette/sleeper. This space converts into a full size bed by collapsing the dining table. Linens, blankets and pillows are provided.

In the bow of the boat you'll find two larger than twin bunks, ample storage space and an ensuite half bathroom. There is also skylight/deck-hatch to let in the cool summer breeze.

In the stern of the boat is the main bedroom. This room is set up with twin beds with memory foam mattresses on either wall and a large bureau in the center. A second bathroom with a shower is also accessed from this room as well.

This boat most comfortably sleeps 2 couples or a few adults with a few children.

Located in a very secure and gated marina, our houseboat is just minutes away from downtown Bostons' most popular attractions; Fanueil Hall/Quincy Market, the North End, the New England Aquarium, the Childrenïs' Museum and the Boston Convention Center via car, cab, train or our included water taxi shuttle. Our convenient location makes it easy for you reach points of interest along the waterfront either on foot, via water taxi included in rental price or the 'T' system Go ahead and rent or bring your car, this rental has a FREE parking space for it! This is unheard of in Boston!

This boat 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. As mentioned above, we offer a free water taxi service to the guests of our boats (normally $15pp each way) into Rowes Wharf in Downtown Boston. This quick 10-15 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.

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 a Keurig coffee maker with a variety of coffee pods for your enjoyment. This boat 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.

***Please note, we do try and keep this calendar as updated as possible, but please do inquire even if you see your desired dates may be taken. We have a few other options that may be available even if this boat is not. For our latest availability we suggest you check our direct site, RockOnRentals dot com. You can view all of the boats we offer in Boston, check pricing and even book right from that site.***

Thank you for taking the time to read about our boat Zephyr. Please call or email today to find out more about this truly unique rental!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I own a property management company specializing in yacht and houseboat rentals. I love the water and enjoy sailing every chance I get! I carefully select the listings I represent, so you can be assured you are staying in a property I have stayed in and am confident you will enjoy. I enjoy hosting vacation rental travelers as you are the most adventurous, interesting folks I have had the pleasure to rent to. I look forward to welcoming you aboard!

Why the Owner Chose Boston:
I purchased this boat in 2010. It has been a labor of love to bring her back to her former glory. We have completely renovated every single space aboard this classic yacht of a bygone era. I love old boats, and this renovation has been quite the labor of love. I am very proud of how she came out, and can't wait to share her with you and your family.

The Unique Benefits at this Yacht:
This boat is a massive example of postwar elegance. It has room for your entire crew both topsides and down below. We have our offices on site and are always available if you need anything during your stay. We have free parking and a free water shuttle into downtown. WiFi is included as are all towels, linens and toiletries. Need to rent a car? We have a company on site to handle that. Groceries, we can handle that too. Put us to the challenge to make your stay as memorable and enjoyable as possible!
