You don’t have to be rich and famous to spend the night on a yacht or sailboat. Airbnb actually offers a long list of properties that let you sleep out on the water.

Take your pick from tycoon-style yachts with extras like private chefs, or go for a floating bachelor pad-style houseboat with a hot tub on deck. The choice is yours!
