Head back to your own unique boathouse or yacht and enjoy dinner on the deck whilst watching the sunset over the water. To make this dream a reality we’ve found the top 10 rentals, which are sure to guarantee an unforgettable holiday. Book today and start planning your houseboat or yacht holiday to Boston!
