House boat

Last weekend I was in Shreveport on business when an old buddy of mine asked me if I wanted to stay on his house boat instead of getting a room at the casino. I said sure but to my surpise, several of the guys from my old deer lease had already planned a weekend to fish on the same lake as the house boat. This was last Saturday just after the big storms passed through and the wind was whipping up hard enough to make whitecaps. We didn't get much fishing done but we played lots of poker and consumed large quantities of adult beverages. This boat is now on Cross Lake. It was moved there by an 18 wheeler for $5,000

A little about it before the pics.

Manufacture year 1994

Over $300,000 when new

78 feet long

Powered by twin gas burning V8's

Doppler radar

GPS navigation

4 bedroom with a queen sized bed in each room

Flat screen TV in each bedroom

Huge flat screen in the main living area

2 full bathrooms with a Jacuzzi tub in the master bath

Full kitchen with dish washer

Wet bar with separate ice maker

Washer and dryer

Split level living quarters. You had to walk down a few steps to get to two of the bedrooms.

10x14 (guessing) front porch with 5 burner stainless grill

10x14 (guessing) rear deck with a place to tie up your other boat.

Top/Party deck. Not sure of the size but it's rated for 40 adults.

Captains console/wet bar on party deck.

Intruder detection system that notifies local security even if the ac power is cut.

Automatic spray system to keep mosquitoes at bay.

5 ton central air and heat (heat pump)

Check the pics below. I've never seen anything like it before.

Docked at the marina.


A view from the lake, see the kiddie slide?


Captains console. There's another one just like it upstairs.


View as you walk in the front set of sliding glass doors.


A view looking towards the front of the boat towards the Captains console. The wet bar is right in the center with a blue cover over the sink.


And finally looking towards the back of the boat on top. Man you talk about throwing one helluva party! In the foreground you can see the Captains bar.

$5,000 for that boat!!! maybe you meant to put $50,000. you cant even buy a jetski for 5k lol its a sweet boat no doubt

If he got that thing for 5,000 that is unbeleivable. even 50,000 is a deal on something worth that much.

My bad, it cost him 5K to move it. I think he gave 100K for the boat. I'm going to edit my original post to clear that up.

My thoughts exactly. We tried and tried to get him to take it out and anchor in the middle of the lake but he wouldn't do it. Honestly I think he's a little scared of driving it. LOL

I'd be a little reluctant to drive a $100,000 bill across a lake myself.

After we all had a little to drink, I tried to convince him to let me take her for a spin. He said NO F'N WAY!!!!
