This houseboat, dubbed “Lucky Duck,” is notable in a couple of ways. One, it is more of a boat than some other houseboats, with the controls and motor more clearly visible, plus an undeniably boaty exterior. Two, it has a waterslide off the giant roof deck.
Inside, it lives like a small condo, with an open-concept living room, dining area, and kitchen, leading back to a full-height bedroom with built-in shelving and a more traditional—i.e., more house-like than a head—three-quarter bath.
As lakefront properties should, it has plenty of outdoor space. A covered lower deck provides even more gathering space than the living area, but even that’s dwarfed by the roof deck, which is fully open to the sunshine on nicer days (and has a full view of the Fourth of July fireworks). The roof deck is also the launching point for the waterslide, launching its passengers into the lake next to a small deck off the bedroom.
It’s asking $250,000, plus $1,095 a month for water, sewer, garbage, and the liveaboard fee. Take a look.
