The boat is in a protected part of the marina, but there can be some occasional movement during the day when boats pass by. At night the waters are very calm and some guests even find that a bit of gentle swaying relaxes them and makes for a very restful sleep.
After a long day of touring the city there is nothing better than relaxing on your own private sun deck with a cold drink in hand, listening to the soothing sounds of the ocean as you enjoy the fantastic view of Boston's city skyline! So come join us and float all your cares away on a SleepAfloat managed houseboat!

What a wonderful experience we had staying on the Taurus. The boat was as clean and modern as any hotel and twice as fun. The gentle motion creates a great nights sleep. We went in early spring when it was only about 50 degrees out. The boat has a great heater and we stayed cozy, however it did get a bit chilly in the bottom bunks at night. The location can't be beat. The north end is amazing, no shortage of great dining that's for sure. Can't wait to return!
So glad to hear you enjoyed your stay with us on Taurus! This spring has been unusually cold! Now we know to be better prepared next year. Hope you do come back and stay with us again!

Taurus sits at the end of the pier, which is important so that you can see out into the ocean. It also happens to be right next to a Starbucks and a very short walk to the Long Pier from which we took the ferry every day out to the islands. We loved it, and we'll definitely go back when the weather warms up!
