Boatels aren't new, but there has been a lot of buzz about The Boatel, a floating New York artist-run hotel built out of 16 discarded boats.

After being closed for the winter, the famed Boatel has reopened for business, but most weekends are already booked.

Among Jamaica Bay in Queens, vessels are a singing boat, a patchwork treehouse, and a kama sutra honeymoon suite.

The website advises visitors to “come adventure-ready,” equipped with a towel, hat, swimwear, shades, long sleeves, change of clothes, rain gear, depending on the weather, water bottle, food for grilling, deck chair, liquor and extra bedding.

Since it opened last year, the hotel has been booked during most weekends in the summer.

The boats are in Marina 59 in Far Rockaway, five minutes from Rockaway Beach.
