Where to celebrate New Year’s Eve on board a boat

If you’re tempted with a last minute getaway and need some New Year’s Eve accommodation, we’ve got the perfect solution. There’s something about a New Year break that makes the occasion bigger, better; more exciting. A unique place to stay with loved ones or friends and the thrill of fireworks.

New Year’s Eve Accommodation

At Beds on Board we know that the best way to see spectacular New Year’s Eve firework displays in waterside locations, is from the deck of a boat. Stay on a boat and watch as the reflection of the fireworks over the water doubles their impact. Best of all, when you’ve finished partying you can just step down into your cabin and you’re home.

How to stay on a boat? It’s never been easier. Beds on Board puts you in touch with boat owners who rent out their cabins in some amazing locations. What’s more, we still have boats available over New Year 2016/17!
