You are currently looking at Brasil - your own private 61 foot yacht in downtown Providence. This is an upgrade from a regular houseboat which we also offer. Our 61 foot yacht is conveniently located in downtown Providence just a stone’s throw from Brown University, Waterfire, the East side and Davol Square. Our marina is also host to three major Providence hot spots for dinning and nightlife including the Whiskey Republic, Lola’s and The HOT CLUB.

We offer an alternative to conventional hotels in the local providence area by offering overnight stays aboard our fully furnished, 61 foot motoryacht. Our yacht, a Geerd Hendel 61, was custom built for a member of the DuPont family and is available to select customers for single to multi-night stays.

Our yacht provides a floating experience aboard a well appointed motoryacht. Our yacht offers the following features:

-NEW Pump Out station added at Fox Point Marina allowing for disposal of waste from holding tanks on a weekly basis - this removea any smell issue from the houseboats


- NEW August 2016!!! Brand new Teak and Holly floor has been laid to replace the older cork floor as a response to customer feedback

-NEW August 2016!!! Air conditioning units have been placed in the master bedroom and guest bedrooms
- NEW electric toilet with backflow sewage prevention installed in June 2017 - this has eliminated any smell issue
•Sun-Filled 3rd Level Salon with 360 degree views of the city
•Full Deck area perfect for barbeques
•Master Bedroom complete with Queen Size Bed and full bathroom
•Fully functional kitchen with mini- fridge/freezer, 4-burner stove and oven
•Guest quarters including 2 twin beds and separate full bathroom (hammock and inflatable bed available in upper salon to accommodate 2-3 more people for overnight stays - additional $50 per extra guest, maximum 6 guests total)
•Private end- dock removed from the marina traffic and restaurants

Please note that guests should bring their own Bluetooth Sound system if they wish to have music on board.



We offer different rates depending on the season and depending on the occasion. Our standard summer rates reflect an occupancy of 4 people maximum for overnight stays. 6 people maximum could stay overnight with the additional cost of $50 per extra guest.

For guests looking to have a larger gathering, we offer a 'Function' rate which reflects having a larger crowd aboard. Function rates apply to parties where there are more than 8 visitors at any one time. Our yacht is also perfect for special functions including reunions, photo shoots for weddings and corporate events. Please ask about our special rate for larger functions of up to 20 guests. Due to the wear and tear on the boat and the increased water/electrical usage by having more people aboard, we also reflect that in the rate and appreciate your understanding in this matter. Please review our rates to see what fits your budget.

Included with each stay is overnight parking, all marina/dockage fees and cleaning services.

From all of us at Sleep Aboard, we look forward to having you aboard!

Please see Sleep Aboard and Marina Policies for additional informatione

Note: this is an older yacht with its share of minor defects; there is normal wear and tear on floors, cushions and furniture and is not perfect; clean freaks should not book if you anticipate perfection equal to a sterile hotel room - this is a yacht in the middle of a city, not a hotel room. This experience is so much more unique and original than a hotel room. As a boat, expect bathrooms to be manual and to smell like marine heads do - this is not a house. Like most older boats, this boat has its share of small defects which are common to any older boat. Over time, boats tend to have normal wear and tear to cushions and curtains. These issues including boat smells are common to all boats and are part of the original experience. We would not recommend any of our older boats for people very sensitive to smells or folks that perhaps have asthma. We do hope that our guest have a higher degree of flexibility being on a boat because it is a very unique experience unlike a house or an apartment or a hotel room.

Where you’ll be

Providence, Rhode Island, United States

This houseboat is located in downtown Providence. It is minutes away from the airport, and dozens of great restaurants and shops. In fact, popular Providence hang outs are in front of the marina including Lola’s Mexican Bar & Cantina, The Whiskey Republic and Providence’s famous Hot Club. Other great restaurants including several pubs, an Indian Restaurant, a Sushi restaurant and the trendy Jewelry District are just around the corner. There is a grocery store less than a half mile away, laundromats, and a convenience store on the corner. Adjacent to our marina is a water taxi service that provides pick-ups and drop-offs to many local hot spots along the Providence Canal.

My name is Neil Malik and I am the owner of Sleep Aboard. I have 35 years of boating experience including short-handed crossings of the North and South Atlantic Oceans (USA-Europe-Brazil). After so much extensive travel, my goal is to provide a very unique, different experience for my guests that will pale any hotel experience. As an ex-COO of an Inc 500 company, I recognize the needs of my customers and try as hard as possible to accommodate each and every guest.
