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.

Memorable family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week on the yacht as a family of four - parents with kids ages 10 and 8, and had a truly fun and memorable experience. Our kids had a week off of school in February, and we were lucky enough to have unseasonably warm weather for several of the days. Yet, even on a day when it snowed, the boat was pleasantly warm and comfortable. Our kids loved their bedroom and playing cards in the galley.

Deb and Jim were very responsive and helpful - great hosts.

The location was great - from there, we walked the entire Freedom Trail & African American history trail (my husband downloaded an app with a self-guided tour, that was great) - and we walked to all the places we visited including the Aquarium, the Boston Science Center (excellent - and for which we had reciprocity - e.g. free admittance - thanks to a membership to a Science Center near our home in Jersey City, NJ), and Boston Commons and more (of course, we like to walk and our kids are great about walking a lot, so others might prefer to find other ways to get around).

If you are staying on the boat with kids ages 5-15, we'd highly recommend the "Junior Ranger program" - a free program at all National Parks and Historic Sites (at any of the National Historic Sites along the Freedom Trail, you can ask about that to get the free booklet and get started).

A great place to stay in Boston!!!

We had a ball. It was dead of winter with a record cold snap but we were cozy on this beautiful yacht. Would do it again in a heartbeat. Close to the North End and very quiet and peaceful neighborhood. Highly recommend it. Dan M.

This was one of our favorite VRBO rentals ever. Amazing location, very peaceful marina, good location to a couple of great restaurants, and the water taxi will pick-up/drop-off right at the end of the dock! (Ask for them to pick you up at Pier 8.)

The inside of the yacht was spacious, the beds very comfortable, and there was plenty of room for the 4 adults we had on this trip.

We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

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!!
