NEW OFFERING!! Perfect vessel for use as a luxury liveaboard, guest house, floating marina office or High income generating VRBO! Global Boatworks is a high end builder of custom homes and high end custom houseboats. She is richly detailed in her interior fit and finish with many attractive traditional details while at the same time creating a spacious light-filled home with a contemporary feel and ambiance. Recent additions include a brand new Mitsubishi Mini Split HVAC system and a very high end Samsung large fridge/freezer for her massive gourmet galley! She was built as a 2 bedroom/2 Full bath home, but she has ample room for extra occasional guests on sleep sofas if desired. Perhaps her singular greatest feature is her large upper level deck with expansive views in 3 directions. This deck, conveniently located right off the huge master suite, presents an entertaining haven! Further enhancing the al-fresco experience is an adjacent “mini galley” for food storage and light prep such as morning coffee al fresco and afternoon cocktails and apps!

Another of La Regina’s many great features is her massive storage area in both the twin hulls and in her attic allowing easy storage transition for a buyer who is transitioning from a land-based dwelling or a smaller boat. Overall she offers a warm and inviting waterfront home with over 1800 SF of luxury living-not to mention her over 950 SF of storage space! She truly is a must see for anyone who is or who has seriously considered living life on the water…Take it from this broker with almost 40 years of such experience! Located very close to Boston, she is a short ride from Logan Airport and she can be relocated and shipped to the location of your choosing.

Note: Outboard engines can be mounted on the stern of the barge if your local marina of choice requires a means of self propulsion for the vessel.

Vessel Walkthrough

The vessel is entered via the custom built ramp leading up to the side entry and entry foyer. The ramp is fully hand railed for safety. The entry foyer area offers a generous space with a clear view across the lower level to the sliding glass doors leading out to the small lower sidedeck - a little bonus deck. Standing in the foyer to the left is a large hanging closet with built in storage. To the right is the entrance to the lower bedroom which is currently being used as a crafts room but is easily convertible back to a bedroom. This room is light filled with double wide windows on two walls and has ample room for a queen bed and dressers. This room also provides another access point to the “basement”. Standing in the foyer and proceeding left is the first of two full baths with natural light and generous storage. Opposite and down the hallway is a sizeable storage closet/extra pantry and access to both the utility closet (further down and on left) and the second rear entry/exit (at end of hallway and rear of boat) and a small deck where the shore power cords enter the boat. Returning to the foyer area and moving forward one enters the main open layout living area with huge galley area to the left, dining table area at center and living room/family room area to the right. This total area takes advantage of the entire length of the boat and creates a seamless and inviting living environment. The washer and dryer is located at the rear of the galley. Also located towards the rear of the galley is the spiral staircase to the upper level. Located next to the staircase is the electric hoist “open dumbwaiter” system for moving heavy or awkward items between the two levels. Proceeding up the staircase one arrives at a beautiful cozy large landing area featuring natural light and a little sitting area - a great area to just sit and read or meditate. I like to refer to this as the Zen Bird’s Nest! The staircase opening at the top of the stairs features a clear safety surround for both safety and a feeling of openness for views and light passage down to the galley below. The huge master suite is entered through a door off this landing area. To the immediate right is the full bathroom suite. Immediately forward is a niche currently used for owners chest of drawers. To the left on the left is the immense walk in closet. Opposite the closet is the master stateroom with a semi-open office area set off with rolling semi-transparent sliding partitions. This area features a large hanging closet and can just be converted back to extra bedroom space if desired. Adjacent to this office area is the queen bed with TV wall opposite. Adjacent to the walk in closet is another sizeable open area currently used for a storage armoir and mini-bar mini galley to prep and store food and drinks for upper deck which is adjacent and accessed through insulated sliding glass doors. This “anteroom” to the deck can also be used as a second office area if desired.

Broker's Comments

This is an amazing and rare chance to purchase a well loved floating palace! La Regina has been well loved by her current owner who is moving back to the hometown of Philadelphia after having had a great 6 year living adventure onboard. With very mixed feelings, the owner is letting her go for another lucky new owner to continue the love, the beauty and adventure of living aboard a truly one of a kind houseboat! If you’ve had this dream or are ready to move up to a higher end houseboat, then La Regina could very well be the boat for you-she will not disappoint!
