On a Boat
Five Boats to Get You Excited for Summer

Yesterday: a gorgeous spring day. Today: not so much. What they both have in common: you sitting in your office daydreaming of sunny skies out on a boat this summer. Daydreams: meet reality. Times five...

FOR THE FISHING TRIP

Indiscretion

What it is: A 42-foot sportfishing yacht. Good for you and 12 people to cruise around the harbor while you take advantage of the full bar, catering (think: BBQ and lobster rolls) and surround sound. Or just the master stateroom...
Best for: Alpha-male bonding/deal closing. Or, you know, fishing.

Indiscretion, Boston Harbor Boat Rentals, 617-240-2900

FOR THE STAYCATION

Constellation Cottage

What it is: The kind of cozy wood-beamed cabin with a sunporch, a roof deck, a full kitchen and a temporary domicile you’d rent deep in the Vermont woods. Only floating in the Charlestown Navy Yard.
Best for: An in-town getaway with a few friends. Or as a depository for your in-laws.
411:
Constellation Cottage, SleepAfloat, 617-855-5092

FOR A CASINO ROYALE

The Lexington

What it is: A 96-foot, old-timey riverboat with teak and brass accents. It’s got two full bars, an upper-deck dance floor and enough space for you and over 140 people to rule the Charles.
Best for: A Maverick-inspired poker tournament.
411:
The Lexington, Smooth Sailing Yacht Charters, 617-720-0029

FOR THE SANDBAR

Chillax

What it is: A simple, 18-foot ragtop day boat with terrestrial radio and lounge-able seating (like the boat version of your first convertible).
Best for: You, five friends and a perfect city-facing spot in the harbor. For a hard day of tanning.
411:
Chillax, Freedom Boat Club (membership required), 617-299-8000

FOR LAKE WINNIPESAUKEE

SeaRay Bowrider

What it is: A ski boat with 240 horsepower, a V8 engine... and a reason to get a day at Weirs Beach on the calendar.
Best for: Finally enjoying an afternoon on New Hampshire’s biggest lake, with all the swagger of a young Kenny Powers. Ah, summer.
