42' Bunkbed Houseboat

42' Bunkbed Houseboat

Experience the freedom of open water in the 42' Bunkbed Houseboat. A vessel designed for comfort and practicality, accommodating up to 4 adults + 2 small children. With two private staterooms, equipped with a full-size bed and a full-size bunk bed, along with a sleeper sofa for added versatility.

The houseboat features a complete bathroom, ensuring your needs are met. We provide marine toilet paper, but remember to pack your own toiletries. We care about your comfort, so we've provided blankets, sheets, pillows, and bath towels for your convenience.

In the heart of the boat, a functional kitchen awaits. Prepare your meals using a propane stove or a microwave (when docked). Store your ingredients in the 8.5 cubic feet fridge with a small freezer. And yes, we've included a French Press for your morning coffee.

This houseboat is a smoke-free zone, ensuring fresh air and clean surroundings. Please note, the roof is not accessible due to Coast Guard regulations.

On the technical side, it's powered by a Yamaha 115HP outboard engine, capable of reaching a speed of 6 mph. Two fuel tanks are provided, offering a maximum distance of approximately 30 miles. The helm includes a Chartplotter, guiding you through your journey.

Drive the houseboat yourself or remain dockside!
