East Coast Houseboats, a new concept in boating that combines the look and feel of a waterfront condo with the mobility of a power boat. Enjoy cruising to your favorite harbor, fishing from your deck, or simply relaxing at the pier. The possibilities are endless.Upon boarding the East Coast Houseboats, prepare to be impressed as it is thoughtfully designed and beautifully finished inside and out. As you settle in, you will find a boat that offers condo style comfort and features wood-beamed cathedral ceilings, a fully appointed galley, and a residential sized shower. The main salon is bright, uncluttered, and very accommodating, while the owner’s stateroom features a fantastic water view and a romantic private deck.
Your East Coast Houseboats can be customized to create your own floating resort. It is ideal for use in salt water and its 18″ draft allows access to shallow waters.The price is right with East Coast Houseboats. It is the most affordable water retreat around.
