You are currently looking at our 45' Albin Trawler - your own private yacht in downtown Providence. This is an upgrade from a regular houseboat which we also offer. Our Albin Trawler is conveniently located in downtown Providence just a stone’s throw from Brown University, Waterfire, the East side and Davol Square. Our marina is also host to three major Providence hot spots for dinning and nightlife including the Whiskey Republic, Lola’s and The HOT CLUB.
We offer an alternative to conventional hotels in the local providence area by offering overnight stays aboard our fully furnished, 61 foot motoryacht. Our yacht, an Albin 45', is a pedigree cruising yacht and is available to select customers for single to multi-night stays.
Our boat provides a floating experience aboard a well appointed motoryacht. Our yacht offers the following features:
- Sun-Filled Salon with full views of the city
- Large Upper Full Decks on second and third level areas are perfect for barbeques and having drinks at sunset
- Master Bedroom complete with Queen Size Bed and bathroom (shower and faucet)
- Air-conditioned and heated for summer and off-season months
- Fully functional kitchen with mini- fridge/freezer, 4-burner stove and oven
- Guest quarters including separate berth in bow sleeps 2 and has a separate bathroom (toilet and faucet)
- Upper salon accommodate 2-3 additional people for overnight stays - additional $50 per extra guest, maximum 7 guests total
- Private end- dock removed from the marina traffic and restaurants
- Two bathrooms as follows: one bathroom maintains a toilet and sink/faucet (common area) and bathroom on master bedroom as shower/faucet
We offer different rates depending on the season and depending on the occasion. Our standard summer rates reflect an occupancy of 4 people maximum for overnight stays. 6 people maximum could stay overnight with the additional cost of $50 per extra guest.
For guests looking to have a larger gathering, we offer a 'Function' rate which reflects having a larger crowd aboard. Function rates apply to parties where there are more than 8 visitors at any one time. Our yacht is also perfect for special functions including reunions, photo shoots for weddings and corporate events. Please ask about our special rate for larger functions of up to 20 guests. Due to the wear and tear on the boat and the increased water/electrical usage by having more people aboard, we also reflect that in the rate and appreciate your understanding in this matter. Please review our rates to see what fits your budget.
Note: this is an older yacht with its share of minor defects; there is normal wear and tear on floors, cushions and furniture and is not perfect; clean freaks should not book if you anticipate perfection equal to a sterile hotel room - this is a yacht in the middle of a city, not a hotel room. This experience is so much more unique and original than a hotel room. As a boat, expect bathrooms to be manual and to smell like marine heads do - this is not a house.
New in 2016 - Kayak, Stand Up Paddle and Row Boat Rentals ....As part of your stay at our marina, Sleep Aboard now offers several water-craft available for rental including several kayaks, several Stand-Up Paddle Boards (SUP) and a classic Whitehall rowing boat.
