9 Reasons a Boat is Better & Cheaper than a Hotel

4) Lots of Options for Half the Price Of A Hotel

Today, it’s easy to find hundreds of houseboat options ranging from modest cruisers to luxurious yachts. Most great vacation destinations are on the water, but you no longer have to page huge prices to stay right on the water. Websites like AirBnB and VRBO have tons of listings for a wide variety of boats. These sites will also help you find rentals for half the price you’d pay in a comparable hotel. For example, if you’re planning on visiting Key West, you can find two-bedroom houseboats starting at $150 a night. Or, if you want something a little more high-end, you could get a spacious two-bedroom yacht for $299. You could also rent a sailboat, a cozy trawler, and much more. All of these beautiful boats provide more space than you’d have at a hotel, and you’ll have your own kitchen. With so many options, it’s easy to shop around until you find the right boat for you.
