The little cabin boat or mini yacht that you see here is Adventure Craft’s AC2800.

Have you ever seen one of these before?

They like to describe it as a miniature yacht. Actually they use the term CABINYACHT.

And yes, it’s still quite pricey but I thought it was worth showing you guys because it’s like a tiny boat house of sorts.

One of the things I loved is that you can drive the boat either from the inside or up top with an amazing view.

The glass doors in the front and rear not only give you an incredible view from the inside but can also provide a nice breeze.

Hey! Don’t miss the video at the very bottom of this post. :)

The house boat is 28.5 feet long and offers the following features:

  • Bathroom and shower
  • Hot water heater
  • Refrigerator
  • Coffee maker
  • Microwave
  • Air conditioning
  • On-board battery charger
  • Four couch seats that convert to two beds
  • Sleeps 4 people
  • Storage under seats

Inside there is 6’4″ of headroom.

There are a total of eight large screened windows so you can enjoy an open and breezy feel.

On the second level deck there are two molded chairs along with a picnic area.

There’s also a fly bridge so you can drive up there too, as I already mentioned.

The boat can accommodate up to a 150 horse power engine. This allows it to go upwards of 28 miles per hour.

Fuel efficiency is somewhere between 4 and 6 miles per gallon.

    At 6’6″ I’m instantly disqualified. But I like the look of it and the huge windows!

    I’m 5’8″ so I’m in! Lol. I like the look of it too… Especially because of those big windows. I think it’s a really cool boat. Thanks for coming by Brian!

    I looked at this boat but decided on a Ranger Tug 25SC as my dream for both a small house and a boat on the water. Being on the water in your own home is a great experience and I can go where ever I want.

    I think it is way cool. It is like a mini-house boat. It is great for one wanting use the boat for day trips and stay in it while docked (home port or another port).

    For sure BWG. It also seems easy to tow which is cool.

    How do I get rid of these annoying pop ups? They are in the youtube screen and driving me crazy.

    I would rather have a sailboat or maybe a trimiran instead. Rely on the wind instead of a motor.

    Looks like a great boat for a family. Interested to know the cost, and stability of the boat from flybridge? I boat in coastal bays and ocean. Is the boat designed for saltwater use and can it take some rockin’, either from other boats or rough water?

    Hey Mike I’m glad you stopped by. Since I’ve never used one I think you are better off contacting the dealer right here with your questions:

    I’m sure it’s fine for what you need but there are probably other boats out there that may fit your needs better if you’re constantly dealing with rough water.

    Really nice. After spending a weekend on a houseboat – I am in love with the idea. This would be too small for full time, but is a real sweet boat.

    Missed this one too. There are a lot of these out there, just get FG ones, not metal ones.

    In a few weeks I’m starting a 16′ all cabin version with steering inside and on top.

    It’ll be aero shaped to be a trailer too with the tongue bolted to the bow and wheels attached when needed as a trailer making it very flexible to live on land or water or travel at low cost.

    Easily livable, my wife and I lived aboard a 26 ft sailboat for a few years. But it is a houseboat suitable for only very protected waters. Sliding glass doors aren’t good with breaking waves:)
    Get rid of the 40hp and put on 9.9hp and slow down for better mpg not to mention saving a bundle in motor cost.
