In fact a large portion of the hull is purely storage space. The gross living area is estimated at 1,500 SF. (per owner) and the home was meticulously built of wood construction and a hull made of hand laid fiberglass layer over wood stringers and designed to look like a Side Wheel Paddle Riverboat. Both upstairs and downstairs bedrooms have their own half bath along with another full bathroom with shower and tub.
Notable features include wrap around porches on the upper and rear decks, beautiful copper pipe handrails throughout the home, washer & dryer hookups, ample room on the roof for potential solar panels and a 19 foot x 11 foot dining salon that eschews memories of a bygone era. The home was remodeled and re-wired in 2008 and repainted in 2013. It comes equipped with two 175 gallon fresh water tanks in the storage of the bow with a pressurized system. There are two additional 100 gallon black water tank in the mid-section storage area currently connected to a sewer ejector pump.
