Green Turtle Floating Bed and Breakfast

c/o Shipyard Quarters Marina 13th St., Boston, MA 02129 USA (Show map)


The Green Turtle is a floating bed and breakfast as luxurious as it is unique. Set in historic Boston Harbor, our B and B offers an expansive view of the Boston skyline along with the comfort and amenities of a modern bed and breakfast. We are less than 10 minutes from Logan Airport and the subway is less than a mile. We provide taxi service to the subway, then it is just 5 stops to downtown. The Green Turtle houseboat and yachts were designed for comfort above all and the only reminder you are floating in Boston Harbor is the sound of the gulls, slight motion of the sea and the reflection of the ocean dancing on the ceiling. It is delightful starting your day sipping coffee or enjoying a cold beverage after a day of sightseeing while sitting on your aft deck or dock chairs watching the fabulous sunset and city skyline. The Green Turtle offers 3 boat choices. The Green Turtle I is a houseboat that has two private/separate suites(Loggerhead and Sea Turtle). Each has a kitchenette and private bathroom/shower en-suite. Each sleeps 2 or rent both for 4 people. Green Turtle II is a 45ft. motor yacht which sleeps 2-6. She has 2 private queen staterooms with bathroom/shower in each stateroom, a full sleeper sofa in the salon, a galley, dinette and a great aft deck with comfortable furniture. Green Turtle III is a 43ft. motor yacht which sleeps 4 in 2 queen staterooms with bathroom/shower in each, a salon, galley, dinette and aft deck with comfortable furniture. Your suite/yacht is stocked with gourmet coffee, tea, juice, water, granola, yogurt and snacks. We deliver fresh breakfast each morning to your door. Staying aboard The Green Turtle is a unique way to visit Boston. All boats are docked in protected marina slips and are permanently moored during your stay. We live here on our sailboat.

Husband's Birthday Surprise

5 on August 15, 2016

The Green Turtle House Boat was a unique experience. I would recommend this B&B for anyone looking for a new vacation spot. The suites had everything you could need. Karen and Jon were kind and informative. Breakfast was delicious. My husband was speechless when we pulled onto the dock and I told him this is where we were staying. Having been to Boston many times, it was so refreshing to stay at Green Turtle. It was a memorable stay and highly recommend to others.

The best place ever....a little slice of heaven....

Living on a yacht

We enjoyed our short vacation in Boston, but the highlight was the experience of living on a 45 ft. yacht. Great way to end an evening out was having a glass of wine on the deck, enjoying the breeze and watching a variety of boats go by. Karen & Jon were gracious hosts and we appreciated their directing us to the best places to go and how to get there. Having breakfast on the deck was also a treat. They even arranged a water taxi to take us to the airport which made our leaving another fun experience. Thank you!!

The rooms were so gorgeous, beautifully decorated & the bed was so comfy. Great location away from the hustle & bustle of downtown Boston but still a close enough walk. Breakfast was amazing and Karen & Jon were so friendly & knowledgeable of the area. We will be coming back.

Best Place In Boston!

The Green Turtle offers a phenomenal and unique location in the historic Naval Yard near the USS Constitution. The hosts treat you like family, excel at helping you choose excursions, and the boats are not only centrally located but immaculate and relaxing to stay. The Green Turtle is a gem that we HIGHLY recommend to anyone.

This was a perfect venue for a summer outing for our Employee Engagement Team, two of which enjoyed the overnight accommodations. What a unique and wonderful experience, everyone was raving about the event, and we all want to go back again. Karen and Jon were a pleasure to work with, thank you!!
