Picture this: You spend the perfect vacation day kicking back on the sun-drenched deck of your beautiful boat. At night, the gentle sound of water lapping against the hull lulls you to sleep. Sounds dreamy, right?

Except it doesn't have to be your boat. You can now live out this summertime daydream thanks to Airbnb—yup, that’s right, there are real boats on there! And while you’re typically not allowed to take the ships out cruising (there are a few exceptions), you can spend all day and night relaxing on the vessel...which is close enough for me!

Ready to hit the open water? Here are 13 of our favorite Airbnb boats to rent out.
