72′ Sumerset — sold –

**** SOLD ****

Thanks for the interest, the boat has sold.

Houseboat on Lake Travis in beautiful Austin, Texas.

Offered for sale is a 16′ x 72′ widebody houseboat. This is a custom built houseboat by the premier manufacturer Sumerset with combination living/dining kitchen area, 3 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, and an office. Everything has been addressed, cleaned, repaired or replaced to make it basically a new boat.

A large liveaboard houseboat is an amazing way to live on the lake.  It can be moved whereever you want to be on the lake, to enjoy a peaceful weekend in a beautiful place.  It is also great to just hang out at the dock.  If you don’t feel like cooking, order takeout or walk down the dock to have dinner at Cafe Blue, which has excellent food.  There are no property taxes, and just like getting a loan for a second home, all interest is tax-deductible.  The neighbors on our dock are also all very nice, friendly people.

The boat is kept in a fully covered slip at Sand Creek Yacht Club, and the slip includes a large patio area in front of the boat for relaxing, barbecuing, storage, etc.  Unlike most marinas on Travis, Sandy Creek has no access issues from the current low water levels.  The slip lease is transferable to the new owners, which is a great thing because there are no more large houseboat slips available at Sandy Creek.  When the water levels dropped, it filled up!

The boat has approx. 900 square feet of living space and a large 16′ x 60′ upper deck with full driving controls accessible via either the lighted front staircase or the rear spiral staircase. The lower floor has a bedroom with a queen size bed, and an office that can be converted into a 4th bedroom. The spacious master bedroom has a king size bed, blackout curtains, built in night stands, and a large closet. The 3rd stateroom is a full size bed with a nice sized closet.  The Jack and Jill style baths have a full size shower.  The ‘great room’ kitchen, living and dining areas are on the main floor.

The kitchen has a full size 4-burner electric range with oven, built in microwave/vent hood, dishwasher and a side-by-side refrigerator. It has large front and rear porches with new patio furniture and all new canvas for the railing and top. New outdoor ceiling fans are on both front and rear porches, and indoor fans in the master bedroom and the living room. In addition to the patio furniture, the boat is furnished with an expandable dining table and 4 chairs, brand new full sized couch, 2 barstools and swivel driver’s chairs for both the upper and lower driving stations. There are two beautiful leaded etched glass cabinets flanking a custom wine rack, above a marble bar with a custom slate back splash.

Power comes from twin 5.0L Mercruiser engines and Bravo II drives, with recent outdrive service (new bellows and shift cables, and fluid change).  The boat has been refurbished inside and out.

Enjoy the 42″ LCD HDTV mounted on an articulating arm so it can be viewed from the front porch, living room, or dining area.  The entertainment system also includes a new DVD player / burner, and rear view camera with night vision.

This is a turnkey vacation home, and includes everything you will need – linens, towels, cookware, dishes, silverware, pool floats, life vests, tools, spare parts, everything!  Just bring your toothbrush and a change of clothes!
