    The One and Only Just Hangin’🤙 she is the ONLY Holiday Mansion Houseboat cruising Boston Harbor. Be a part of the talk of the Town🤙

    Rented for a few hours with family for a milestone birthday. Capt Jimmy, Kyla, Josh and pupper were amazing. So friendly, so helpful, the boat is in great shape, comfortable seating and a great ride around the harbor islands and Boston. Communication was great and we knew where to go and what to expect. 10/10 will be back 🛥

    Boston harbor and it’s beautiful islands cruise and charter on Miss Norma our 40ft pacemaker yacht

    We absolutely had a blast with Captain John and Renee. Miss Norma was incredible, very spacious. We took some friends out who had never been to Boston before and had a wonderful experience. I would definitely recommend John and his crew. Will see you again.

    Book the Classic Bertram 26 Open Sport Motor Yacht in Boston, Massachusetts

    Patrick and his boat provided for a most unique view of Boston and the surrounding areas. The boat was well kept, clean, and gave us a smooth and enjoyable ride, and the history of its captain was as interesting and fun to hear about as the history of the city. Sipping on wine watching the sun set over Boston will forever be a cherished moment in our travel memories and we can’t wait to come back and do it again! Until next time. Bon voyage!

    Patrick was an amazing captain accomodating our last minute request for a boat ride! He took us on a harbor tour providing interesting and valuable information about the sites, and took us to Spectacle Island for a swim. Thanks Patrick! Highly recommend :)
