Really helpful staff, and right on the edge of town. Local wine and grocery delivery too - try Federal Wine & Spirits for the former, and Roche Bros for the latter. Lucca restaurant on Hannover St also worth a visit.

Love the location of this marina and the service is terrific. Just two minor complaints: dinghies that are not being actively used (ie have 6-8” of water in them) need to be moved further down the dock to make space for actively used dinghies. And having a dryer in each bathroom stall would be nice. The place is clean, well kept and right in the heart of Boston. It is a little bouncy during the day but quiets right down at night.

It’s difficult for me to compare this marina with other Boston Harbor marinas as this is the first time I’ve stopped in Boston. Pros, Great location to dinning and attractions, spectacular views, great staff, showers, bathrooms and laundry if needed. Dock side picnic area and coffee machine. Good floating docks, water and electric all what you’d expect. Cons, Marina can get bounced a bit with harbor boat traffic and or wind even though it’s tucked in a bit. The historic building right next to the marina is under construction and work began on Monday morning at 6am. It was very noisy. I’m sure the marina staff is not happy nor to blame about this issue.

Great location. Called ahead to advise of late arrival. Person who answered phone was very helpful and advised where my pass key would be located should the office be located. This was my third stay at Waterboat, my first on a mooring, and it was a great night which we all enjoyed. Thank You to the staff.

Perfect downtown location. Pubs, restaurants, street performers, historical sites, the commons, etc. Everything within walking distance, except perhaps a grocery store. Uber/Lyft is readily available tho. It gets a little choppy during the day, not bad, but calm at night. Staff was very helpful.

Fantastic location with easy access to the city. We had a nice view of the tall ships from here. Staff were very friendly and welcoming -facilities are very clean and the access gate is secure. No launch service for rental moorings is an inconvenience - we had a rowing dinghy and high winds made the trip to the dock difficult - we used the water taxi a few times $12 per person each way. The wifi in the mooring field is not working - the confirmation email includes the network and password but they are non-existent. I sent a note asking for the revised information and never received a reply - Since I work from the boat, I had to scramble a bit to make alternate arrangements which was not cool. Other than that, we had a great stay!
