              Lake Union is the closest lake to downtown Seattle. Most, if not all houseboats, are situated on the lake with access to a variety of water sports including kayaking and canoeing. Because of the proximity to downtown Seattle and its neighborhoods, all the city amenities and points of interest are less than 10 minutes away.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              Why the Owner Chose South Lake Union:
              This was an opportunity to acquire a houseboat that had been completely rebuilt with new materials, quality construction and a layout that is user friendly and modern. We feel that the area and location is very central and that guests will enjoy a quality living environment in a unique Seattle location.

              The Unique Benefits at this House Boat:
              The location and proximity coupled with the opportunity to enjoy waterfront living in a thoroughly modernized houseboat.
