The Golden Slipper, Boston’s B&B “Afloat” is a traditional Catalina Chris Craft. The 40’ Yacht is located at Lewis Wharf, in the heart of historical Boston. The boat stays moored at the slip and you come and go as you please. This is a private party yacht accommodating up to six guests, with a continental breakfast left for you.

The Golden Slipper offers the unique experience of having a Bed and Breakfast, with the opportunity to cruise Boston Harbor, for a day or sunset cruise. You return to your slip, the innkeepers leave, and you continue to enjoy your yacht for the rest of your visit.
In addition to the two private staterooms, the main salon accommodates 2 more people on a double berth sofa. This layout is perfect for a family vacation, reunion, or “girls' getaway”. The business traveler can enjoy a unique, comfortable setting, as well, and entertain clients with a sunset dinner cruise.

A night under the stars
We had a wonderful time on the Golden Slipper! Arrived by water taxi, per owner's suggestion, literally right from the airport to the 'front door' of the boat. It was immaculately appointed; we were met at the boat and given a thorough tour, then left to enjoy a perfect evening on board, capped off by the most beautiful of sunrises over the water. We would definitely stay again when back in town.
Boston in a Boat
This was a great place for our first visit to Boston. We've never stayed in a boat so we didn't know what to expect. Fortunately we have a 27-foot RV so we know what it's like to stay in smaller spaces. We felt very safe here. It's not in a wharf with a lot of boats coming and going so it's quiet. The deck of the boat is wonderful. You can sit and relax here.
It's not a place to stay if you have any mobility issues. The access door to inside the boat is not a std size door. You have to duck to get in.
Very conveniently located to the North End and couple of blocks from a T station.
Gretchen was very responsive. She contacted me the day before we arrived to make sure we knew how to get from the airport to the boat. Susan, her property manager, was there when we arrived and gave us helpful info. Both were available throughout our stay
Great location and excellent hospitality!
We loved staying at the Golden Slipper! Just in town for the night and it was a great location right on the North End. We were able to walk to a bunch of great places to eat and many tourist attractions. The boat was such a unique way to see Boston! It was clean and spacious. Excellent hosts. We will definitely stay here again when we come back to Boston. Highly recommended!
Wicked Better Than A Hotel Room!
We had the most relaxing evening on the deck of the golden slipper. Having.wine and snacks to end a week long visit with friends from California. We slept so well and they took the water taxi to the airport the next morning. Another first. Such a gracious hostess. We hope to stay again!
Rocked to sleep
So fun! Who knew you could rent a boat instead of a house or hotel?!? Clean, fun, well appointed with cookware, toiletries, etc- they even provided juice, bagels and cream cheese for
our breakfast. LOVED sitting out on the boat deck watching the sun set, enjoying apps and wine! Slept great! Just like a baby! I think it was the gentle rocking motion of the boat!
Very comfortable and clean.
Great experience. Excellent communications from Gretchen. Would do it again.
Within Walking Distance of Historical Boston Harbor including Fanueil Hall Marketplace, Freedom Trail, The Aquarium, The Trolley's, Little Italy and Boston Commons.
