These are Boat A Homes, a houseboat loaded with features and designed to be comfortable and stylish. Boat A Home isn’t just a houseboat (or in this case, what we call a boaterhome) maker, but a group of people who get together for group events on the water like cruises and such.
Boat A Home houseboats are made in three sizes: 6.9 meters, 7.6 meters, and 7.9 meters. We’ll look at the 7.9 meter Escape II.
For power, they’re outfitted with one 40hp Suzuki engine, 1 80hp, or 2 40hp Suzukis. Of course, you can also get bigger or smaller engines for them, but this gives you an idea of the standard size. The Escape II comes with the following standard inclusions:
|Aluminium trailer with electric hydraulic break away system with stair access||Dometic range hood|
|Electric Lewmar anchor winch||2 x 82ltr fresh water storage|
|Hydraulic tilted steering||Water tank gauges|
|Gauges||Dometic cassette cartridge toilet|
|Garmin GPS Navigation Maps||Fold out double bed|
|2 x 160 watt Solar Panels||Single bed|
|2 x 12v dry cell batteries AGM||Rear deck shower|
|1 x 9Kg gas cylinder||L.E.D. lighting throughout|
|240 AC Volt inlet for battery charger||Navigation & anchor lights|
|Battery Charger Projecta 25amp||Stainless steel rails and gates|

|Stainless Steel pull out pantry||Wide range of colours & upholstery|
|19inch HD LCD TV with DVD player||1 year appliance warranty|
|3 burner gas stove with stainless steel sink||5 year structural guarantee|

There’s also a list of optional inclusions like microwaves, bigger TVs and stereos, side awnings, washing machine, big inverters, and everything else you typically think about when you outfit a houseboat.
There is a list potential new buyers want to get on to buy a new Boat A Home, but it’s not too long before it gets shorter and shorter and you get on. That’s a testament to the quality and desirability of this particular houseboat.
