Would You Live On This Former Columbia River Ferry Boat in Washington?
The ferry is 83 years old and has a long history, including at one time ferrying vehicles across the Columbia River near The Dalles, Oregon. After that, the boat moved to Puget Sound to serve the residents of Herron Island from 1960 to 1989. She (Annabelle) eventually retired and was transformed from a ferry to an amazing houseboat.
This vessel would be perfect for living aboard, as a dinner cruiser, or as a vacation rental. There are so many possibilities. And, right now you can own this 72-foot piece of history (42 feet wide) for the asking price of $825,000 dollars. She has just over 2300 square feet of living space with 3 bedrooms, 1 full bath, and 2 half baths. There's even more space outside on the deck, it has 2500 square feet - plenty of room to relax and take in the scenery whether cruising or docked - there's even a hot tub on the back deck!
If you like to party, Annabelle has a built-in saloon with a huge dance floor. Can you hear 'Margaritaville' playing in your head? Living on a boat has a lot of bonuses, but it does require maintenance - no worries though, Annabelle has a shop to store tools and to work on projects. There's so much to explore on this one-of-a-kind houseboat, so scroll down this page and take a tour, and if you're interested to learn more about this piece of history contact Matt Palmer of Nwyachtnet.com.
