East Dubuque, IL
1962 Dubuque Boiler Boat Home
The price of this condo on the water has just been reduced to under $20,000 and at this price the barge alone is worth the price. How could anyone who enjoys the water, swimming and a private beach pass this up. This 48’ long 18’ beam Dubuque Boiler is a boat home / cottage built on a floating steel Barge. Although it has no power it offers everything a Houseboat has but much more room. This boat home is set up presently as a summer cottage but could be converted to a year around get-a-way with a littl investment and some time. This boat home has both lower and upper living space. The lower level features a forward and aft deck with overhang, a nice size kitchen and dining area forward and a living room / berth area aft. This living room / berth has double bunk beds along with an individual double bed sleeping a total of six. It also has a private changing room with porta-potti. The upper level features a large aft deck with partial overhang that offers a great view of the lake. It also has a nice size den / TV room with comfortable sleeper sofa and also has a private changing room with porta- potti. If you are looking for a wonderful summer get-a-way cottage near the water you cannot get much closer than living on it. This boat home is set up very comfortably at present but also has a great deal of potential for the right buyer. Get a couple of Jet Skis or a Run A Bout, spend the day exploring the river and come home to your floating boat home to watch the sun set.
