This trailerable houseboat is manufactured by Pipercraft. I found it today on eBay and I have to say I have never really seen anything like this. It’s awesome!
It raises and collapses with hydraulics which is one of the reasons that make it easy to tow. It can sleep 4-5 people and has a toilet, shower, refrigerator, stove, generator, and air conditioning.
It can actually be used as both a houseboat and a camper. Pretty neat all in one. I guess these MSRP brand new for about $70,000. If you’re interested in this one, act fast because the auction’s almost over!
It has a 75 HP engine. The boat itself is 28′ in length and 8′ 6″ in width. With the trailer it’s 31′ long. Fresh water tank is 65 gallons, black water 33, and grey water 44. It holds 47 gallons of gas and weighs about 8,000 pounds with the trailer.
While towing it’s 9’7″ high (but remember it hydraulically lifts/collapses). It even has an outdoor grill in front of the cockpit. Very unique houseboat!
Have you seen anything else like this before?
Update: This has already been sold.
