Our Story

You may have wondered how this brilliant idea of renting floating homes as vacation rentals came to be.  We'd love to tell you a tall tale of dragon slaying, fairy godmothers and swashbuckling pirates, but in reality we just aren't that creative. So here's our story in a nutshell:

The story starts with Andy, Founder and CEO of SleepAfloat, who lived aboard his own refurbished barge in Boston Harbor for 10 years. This five-bedroom, three-bathroom vessel with jacuzzi on the roof drew a lot of attention and Andy quickly fell in love the with the lifestyle; grilling on the deck, enjoying cocktails on the roof at sunset, and being gently rocked to sleep every night.

Traveling often, Andy grew tired of having to stay in the same old boring cookie cutter hotel rooms when he was on the road.  He often found that the most fun and entertaining parts of town were along the waterfront.  This inspired him to purchase the first SleepAfloat houseboat for travelers to enjoy in 2005 right in Boston Harbor.  Since then, our fleet has grown (insert really big number here) percent in size and has expanded to a dozen cities across the nation.  We continue to grow each and every year and hope to one day be the number one alternative to staying in an on-land accommodation.
