The Green Turtle is a floating bed & breakfast as luxurious as it is unique. Set in historic Charlestown Navy Yard on Boston Harbor, our B & B offers an expansive view of the Boston Harbor skyline along with the comfort and amenities of a modern bed and breakfast. The USS Constitution "Old Ironsides", the Bunker Hill Monument and the Freedom Trail are a short walk away. You can take the water ferry or free bus shuttle to get to all of the sites. Water taxi will pick you up and drop you off at our front door from the airport. 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 harbor traffic and city skyline. The Green Turtle offers 3 boat choices. The Green Turtle I is a houseboat that has two private/separate suites(Loggerhead & 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. Come Float With US!

Boston Hidden Gem

4.4 on July 08, 2014

From the gentle sway of the water, to the harbor views and sea air, this unique and charming bed and breakfast was truly delightful. Gracious hosts Jon and Karen were lovely and attentive and very welcoming. Little touches such as snacks and cold drinks in our room upon our arrival made us feel extra special. Morning breakfast was delicious (Jon made sure to inquire about our breakfast likes and even what time we would prefer to eat)! I must also mention the bed, as it was surprisingly cozy and extremely comfortable (would happily take that home with me if I could)! Sadly our stay at the Green Turtle was over too quickly. Had there been an available room we would have stayed an extra day! This gem is must for Boston lovers!

Wonderful Time

We had a wonderful stay at the Green Turtle. Karen and Jon a great hosts.the breakfast is delicious, the site is also perfect with view to the skyline of Boston. The Airport is near but it is also near to Boston and is not disturbing. For a City visit, a car is not necessary.(2 stations with the T to the airport and 4-5 in the city). We enjoyed our stay in this wonderful floating boat. As we stayed in Green Turtle 1 we had great sunrise views from the bedside also great sundowners from the deck with view to the skyline of Boston. Thanks Karen and Jon for this outstanding stay and you B&B

The Green Turtle is awesome! The rooms are spotless clean and lovely decorated. It feels like home away from home. Karen and Jon are wonderful hosts that make you feel warm and so welcomed.. The breakfast each morning is outstanding! We would rate this B&B A++....+. Thank you Karen and Jon, We'll be back some day.

Perfect spot in Boston

We recently stayed for three nights while visiting Boston. The Green Turtle was the perfect place to stay! It's quite close to downtown, but is a relaxing retreat. Jon and Karen anticipated all of our needs, and we felt pampered and welcome throughout our stay. What a gem!

Great place, great owners!

A great place to stay on the harbor. Outside of the hustle and bustle of downtown, yet still very close. Karen and Jon are great hosts and I would recommend staying at the Green Turtle.
