Explore beautiful Nantucket Island while staying aboard a classic yacht!

Roshika is a 1953 Hinckley located on a private mooring in the Nantucket Harbor, where you can go for a swim, relax on deck and take in amazing sunsets from the cockpit!

Easy access to all downtown Nantucket has to offer!

The space

Roshika provides an opportunity to enjoy the island of Nantucket while staying aboard a 36' classic sailboat.

Built in 1953, she has a wonderful interior with lots of varnished mahogany and full standing headroom throughout the vessel. Forward (or in the bow) you will find the V-birth, that sleeps two comfortably and has access to the head (bathroom).

The middle section of the boat (the main salon) contains another full birth that can sleep one on the starboard side and a second (though shorter) birth to port.

Other amenities include, a well insulated ice box, CD/ iPod compatible stereo, life jackets, DC cell phone charging station, reading lights and two brass oil lanterns that create a beautiful warm light throughout the cabin. There is a sun shower on board, but guest are welcomed/ encouraged to use the well maintained public showering facilities located on the docks.

Access to town is via the Nantucket Harbor launch which runs regularly from 7:00 am to midnight for a fee of $5.00 a person, plus tip per ride.

A truly unique Island experience!

Guest access

to one of the prettiest harbor around.

Interaction with guests

I have been a yacht Captain for over 10 years and I live/work on the Island. I am on the water everyday and will be available to address/assist with any questions or concerns.

Other things to note

I will accompany you to the boat and walk you through the necessary procedures to make your stay as comfortable as possible. However, before booking please consider that this experience is not like your typical rental. Its is a boat out on the harbor and subject to the elements -if you are not comfortable on boats and/or generally don't enjoy camping this might not be for you.

The boat CAN NOT be moved from the mooring. The floors are varnished teak and holly, so sorry no dogs please!
Also, a good tip if possible would be to avoid rolling luggage! They are hard on cushions and varnish, plus the cobblestone streets of Nantucket are not easy to navigate!

My partner and I had an absolutely fantastic 5 night stay on Chad's yacht in Nantucket harbour. Chad was incredibly friendly, chilled out, responsive and helpful - giving us tips about the local area and checking in with us during the stay to make sure we were having a good time. He hit the perfect balance between attentive host and leaving us to our own devices. We couldn't recommend a holiday on Roshika more. Thanks Chad! Anna and Caspar

Chad was great, the boat was beautiful and it was a great experience! We had some weather, so the launch wasn't running (late season as well) but Chad put us in contact with Harry, who took great care of us and it all worked out. The views from the boat were spectacular!

This was our second year staying on Roshika and hasn't disappointed! Boat was clean only problem the time went too fast! Chad keeps the boat in pristine shape. We look forward to coming back hopefully for longer than2 nights.

We had such a great time on Roshika! Its such a fun change from hotels or cottages. Chad was a great host and left us plenty of snacks and booze. We had one night in a monsoon and he came to the rescue with fresh linens and to "batton down the hatches". I would recommend watching the sunset out on deck with some champagne. We became good friends with the harbor launch crew by the time we left. Just call on the radio for pickup and theyre faster than an Uber. Already looking forward to our return trip!

We've been to Nantucket in the past, but we've never experienced the beauty of the island like the way we did on board Roshika. Chad was a very accommodating and warm host. The boat is beautiful and well maintained. Overall, a very intimate and charming way to experience Nantucket. Strongly recommend!
