The Boggsville Boatel
Welcome to Boggsville Boatel and Boat-in Theater!
The boatel is all sold out for the season! Thank you, everyone!
We are a hotel of boats. This isn't a fancy place - just a collection of old boats and good people sharing our love of the water. Our Boatel is located in a protected marshy cove at Marina 59 in Far Rockaway. We have a wonderful view of Jamaica Bay and JFK Airport.
During the day you can swim off the side of your boat or borrow a wooden dory, handmade by Mare Liberum. We are also four blocks away from Rockaway Beach. The area has a lot to explore! Our director of local tourism, TJ Hospodar, will plan trips to Fort Tilden, Bottle Beach, and other points of interest. At night, we open our Boat-In Theater, where you can enjoy lectures and rare movies projected onto a floating screen.
The facilities at Marina 59 are top of the line: bathrooms, showers, and BBQ pits. You will need to bring your own food to grill, some of which can be bought at the small grocery store right next door to the marina (assuming you are not too picky about organics). If you're not the grilling type, you can always order takeout from the Chinese place down the street.
Traveling to the marina is easy by train. We are 2 blocks from the A line at 60th Street. We recommend you bring your bicycle.
The boatel fee is per boat, not per person. The fees cover the costs of production and materials: this is a nonprofit art project.
After you book your night with us, we will send you a welcome package with more information.
