Houseboats traditionally skimp on space—but this two-bedroom (two-stateroom, in boat parlance) houseboat is actually about the size of a two-bedroom apartment, at 813 square feet. It doesn’t skimp on boatiness, either, with a tugboat vibe on the outside and an interior full of exposed beams in creative configurations.
The boat shape comes to life inside, with the front curve of the vessel creating bay windows in both the living area and the master bedroom above. The lower-level is largely an open-concept space with a large kitchen—truly gargantuan by houseboat standards—and a built-in dining booth, although there’s a smaller bedroom and an office area in the back. Built into the bow, there’s a small built-in bar designed for watching Lake Union, with the ceiling beams forming a starburst above. Climb out the window to sit on a small deck. Head upstairs for the master stateroom and access to a large roof deck with a railing, ideal for sunbathing.
