Brokeru0027s Comments

This houseboat bears little relation to what was originally a standard production houseboat. Tremendous value has been created and added in both design details, superior materials and workmanship to arrive at a truly unique offering in the market. All this, combined with Location, Location and Location is an opportunity NOT to be missed for anyone seeking an economical and beautiful home on the fabulous Boston waterfront!
