Stay on a boat for under £150 per night - 20 unique accommodation options

  • Written by Louise Neville



Beds on Board, the world's leading online boat accommodation platform has just released its Summer 2017 'Top 20 Under £150 Collection'; a hand-picked selection of affordable out-of-the-ordinary experiences across the UK and Europe.

For those who have Berlin on their bucket list but don't fancy a frantic city centre stay, the H2 Lofts Boathouse anchored at Sunset Marina in the Forest of Berlin sleeps four people. The houseboat comes complete with a sauna, hot tub, sun deck and panoramic windows looking out over the river. Prices for H2 Lofts start at around £130 per night for four people – less than £33 per person.

Closer to home (and a long way from a frantic city break) is Orlik, an authentic deep sea fishing vessel built in Denmark in 1950, recently refurbished and now moored in the shadow of Ben Nevis in Scotland. The area makes for some of the best walking in The British Isles. The Great Glen Way passes close by and canoe and bike hire is available just 100 metres from the mooring.

Accommodation on board consists of two double cabins each with a queen size double bed and a separate shower/toilet. Prices start from £120 per night.

For an Ionian Sea marina view on the on the east coast of Corfu, Ferretti 39 is a 12m Italian designed power boat available from £135 per night for a family of four. Gouvia is a traditional fishing village in the heart of Durrell country.  The marina has its own swimming pool, bars and restaurants.  With Corfu town and airport only 6km away the Gouvia marina is easy to get to and a great base for exploring this stunning Greek Island. Prices start at £125 per night for four people.

St Tropez is the epitome of chic, and this Sealine F34 moored in the Bay benefits from spectacular marina views, sleeping six people in three double bedrooms from £149 per night. Moored in Marines de Cogolin 34ft fly bridge has access to the marina's pool, restaurants, shops and beach and a ferry offers easy access to nearby towns.

The sunbathing deck is the perfect place to relax before heading off for dinner in Saint Tropez and finally finishing with a nightcap on the deck under the stars.

Lymington in the New Forest National Park is an idyllic couple's short break destination and the 50' luxury Jeanneau yacht moored in Lymington Yacht Haven with prices from £125 per night, is a great way to enjoy The Forest but with coastal views. This beautiful Georgian town with its cobbled streets and quintessentially English quayside has plenty of places to eat and drink.
