Sailing Catamaran - 44' X 25' X 4'
There's no place to legitimately drop the hook in Boston Harbor, so a mooring ball it is!
We arrived here in the early evening and tied up to a ball for a little over a week. Reservations are easy on Dockwa. Balls aren't assigned, so just grab an open one and dinghy into the office during normal business hours to get access cards and info.
A little pricey at $75/night, this still amounts to a pretty sweet deal in Boston, and the location is incredible. Everything is a short walk, including some of the nation's best Italian food on Boston's North End. The Freedom Trail is easy on/off access from here. We walked it twice.
The marina is secure and facilities are convenient. Laundry and showers are clean and well-kept. The dinghy dock along the south edge of the facility, along the rock wall of Long Wharf. It's configured with a hitching post, rather than cleats, so configure your lines for easy-on, easy-off.
The staff is friendly and accommodating, and they operate an on-call pump-out boat for patrons!
