2002 Sumerset 75' Houseboat

This voluminous floating home made her way to Boston from Georgia UNDER HER OWN POWER!!! This is an extraordinary feat for a houseboat-the vast majority of which are useless as boats! Apart from her useability though is her beauty and spaciousness and easy liveabilty for either a couple or small family. She truly feels like a large home on the water without the 1.5 to 3 Million dollar price tag you’d have to pay for an equivalent Boston waterfront 2-3 bedroom condo! Why overlook the harbor when you can live right in the harbor for a fraction of the cost! The “roof deck” alone is worth the price of admission not to mention the homeyness and coziness of her beautiful interior!

Additionally, this extraordinary vessel has been kept in excellent condition with many updates that go far beyond those of a typical houseboat (see maintenance and update list below). She has every modern amenity you would expect a fine home to have and far more than you’d expect from a houseboat. She is truly ready for her new owners to love and enjoy!

Some Key Features are as Follows:

  • (2) Large lower level decks fore and aft for protected outdoor enjoyment and potential four-season use
  • Newer enclosures for these lower decks
  • (2) Fully functioning EFI gas engines with electronic controls - a harbor joyride on a nice day is quite possible!
  • Bow and Stern thrusters for ease of docking!
  • Huge upper deck with breathtaking views of Boston Harbor
  • Large wet bar with fridge under protective hardtop on upper deck
  • Lower level office/3rd stateroom with beautiful water level window views
  • Huge walk-in master stateroom storage “basement” under master berth - electrically lifts at push of a button!

Brokeru0027s Comments

This is an extraordinarily rare opportunity in Boston to own a luxurious home on the water for a fraction of a land based waterfront dwelling. Additionally, she’s ideally located in the best liveaboard marina in the city in a community of like minded liveaboards. You’ll never be on your own at this state of the art Charlestown Marina designed and setup for year round living with a responsive year round crew to assist! I am a liveaboard of 37 years in Boston and I can tell you that I have never seen a more liveable and USEABLE houseboat in Boston in all that time!

Exclusions

  • Wicker furniture on the lower foredeck and personal items
