About the property

2 Staterooms 2 baths with skyline views, Full kitchen and comfortable salon

If you are planning a trip to Boston consider staying on our very comfortable motor yacht "Sea Pearl" in historic Charlestown on Boston Harbor. We are located in the new Charlestown Marina close to the USS Constitution, Freedom Trail and Bunker Hill monument. The North End is a very pleasant walk of less than 1 mile.

Our yacht is perfect for two couples with two staterooms ( bedrooms) each with a queen size bed and baths with showers. Additional sleeping is available in the full size pullout in the salon.

Fully equipped kitchen with stove top, microwave/confection oven, small refrigerator and freezer, and coffee maker.

The yacht is fully air conditioned and heated during the winter. Stay connected with free WiFi. Two TVs with cable TV.

Small outside seating on the stern of the boat and larger seating area up one level to the helm station. Please note the boat is stationary during your visit and can not be driven.

Accessible to all of Boston via car, bus, and water taxi. Walk to many area restaurants, Freedom Trail, Bunker Hill, USS Constitution and the North End

Free bus to the North End two blocks away, MBTA Water shuttle is less than 10 minute walk and the shuttle drops you off at Long Wharf right next to the New England Aquarium

Safe and friendly neighborhood. Gated entrance to the marina. Free Parking

Our yacht provides a exciting unique remedy for a busy vacation. Wake to the sound of gulls. Have your coffee while watching the sun come up over the harbor. Spend a busy day seeing the sites and return to quiet on the water. Sip a cocktail outside of the deck watching the skyline and finally be rocked to sleep at night in our comfortable beds done up in premium linens.

This yacht is new to us as of 6/8/15. We have been renting a houseboat in Boston Harbor since 2011. Please see homeaway #383012 for our reviews and info on that boat.

Wonderful adventure!

Staying on the boat was great fun. Slept like a log and loved every minute. We would do this again for sure!!! Thanks to Debbie and to Sherry for making it such a pleasurable experience.

Very unique and fun experience. The hosts were awesome, location is great and I would recommend it

  • 5 of 5

Loved The Sea Pearl. Great location, hosts were extremely accomadating. Beds were comfy, it was great. If you are trying to compare this to a hotel, it's not the same. One stateroom has a full bathroom with a shower stall but the second stateroom is simply a bathroom with a pull out sink faucet to use as a shower. Bo need to worry the Marina facilities are exceptionally clean and roomy, so you can always use those if you would rather. We travel in RV's etc so it was nothing new to us. For a unique and fun experience I highly recommend The Sea Pearl. Very fun and comfortable, you can walk almost anywhere you want to go and sitting on the boat with a drink watching the day to change to night was wonderful. !! Thank you Sherry and Deb you guys were awesome!!

Just lovely

  • 5 of 5

Three sisters celebrating a birthday. The setting is just lovely and peaceful.

We so enjoyed the beautiful yacht which had everything you could possibly need.

The bedrooms were very comfortable and we were lulled to sleep by the gentle rocking. We were lucky enough to meet the owners who were very nice. They gave us some very helpful information about this lovely city. We hope to return one day to relive this great trip.

What a wonderful end to an epic 60th birthday trip staying aboard Sea Pearl.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, clean, cute, comfy, roomy, fun! Only issue was a shower leak that effected aft bedroom rug which was wet and musty smelling and needs to be fixed and carpet replaced. Other than that I would recommend this experience of a lifetime 100%. Easy to be picked up by Uber from Pier 8 to get to places of interest. There is a restaurant a close walk to pier 6 with delicious crab cakes and lobster!

A wonderful way to enjoy your stay in Boston from a unique perspective!

  • 5 of 5

Besides a few mechanical miscues, which any boat owner knows will happen and to which Deb & Jim responded quickly, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay on the Sea Pearl. The boat is comfy and well equipped. The location is fantastic... quiet, great views, nice neighbors, easy walk to the start of the Freedom Trail, and a short & convenient water taxi or Lyft to the heart of Boston. If you don't get on the water, you just don't get a real feel for why Boston was so important 250 years ago and why it continues to be such a vibrant city today.

We had 3 adult kids with us for the first several days which made it cozy, but also stretched the space thin. It also gave us extra precious time with them we wouldn't have with separate hotel rooms ...also made it more affordable ;-) There are plenty of other ways to spend money in Beantown.

Before, during, and after the stay Jim & Deb were easy to communicate with. They do little things to make your stay special, and have great support from their caretaker, Sherri, who warmly greeted us and made us feel welcome upon arrival with a quick and friendly orientation and recommendations.

Take time to enjoy the time on the boat! We got so caught up in all of our events and touring that we didn't maximize some of the great benefits of being on the water at Pier 8. Quiet mornings with coffee on the aft deck. Evening conversations rocking gently on the bow. Or just sitting on the dock watching the comings and goings in the harbor.

We have used VRBO for many vacations. This stay lived up to expectations that we have developed from so many detail oriented owners. Thank you for making visit memorable!
