24ft Cruising Houseboat, Design #216

For gentle cruising on inland or sheltered waters this little ship would be hard to beat.  The concept is a boat that works as an RV on the road providing accommodation in parks and campgrounds, but which can then be launched to explore interesting waterways where ever they might be found. The dimensions are chosen to maximise volume with trailerable limits. The interior provides comfortable accommodation for two.
