Travelers visiting Portland have more and more options for lodging as the city expands. Hotels are your standard (and often most expensive) choice. However, AirBnb listings are growing rapidly, especially on the Peninsula. You'll find private rooms in large homes, entire apartments, and now, private classic yachts equipped with cozy sleeping quarters.

You will be staying on a perfectly maintained classic Chris Craft Sea Skiff. This boat turns heads wherever she goes, and she is a hoot to be on. Four guests can be stay comfortably on board, but there are comfortable beds for six adults, although that would be tight. The boat is berthed at a comfortable and safe marina that has bathrooms and shower facilities.

You can't get much closer to the water than on top of it. Your morning views from the yacht are unparalleled to those anywhere else in Portland. Book it for a few nights and take in Casco Bay life aboard a classic yacht.
