1972 Custom 42 Houseboat House in La Grange, California

Stock #139864

This custom-built houseboat is moored in a preferred location on Lake Don Pedro and features a wide deck making it easy to move around the outside of the boat. There are plenty of tie-ups to make for easy access.

The cabin is 23'6" long by 11'5" wide, and 6'9" headroom.

Enclosed is a dining/living area, a galley with two sinks, a four-burner stove, a microwave and a good-sized refrigerator/freezer that freezes things like popsicles quickly, plus lots of storage space with soft-closing drawers, and head with a shower, and did I mention...lots of storage space throughout!

Two heaters flush with the wall work very well to heat the cabin. A three-gallon propane water heater gives you enough hot water to do the dishes or take a shower.

Well maintained, this boat is fully screened -- you can have windows, the sliding screen door, and back door screened window open for excellent cross ventilation.

The stereo system is designed to easily control four distinct zones: the cabin, the top deck, and the aft and forward decks.

The owners report that the two berths in the cabin are comfortable, and there is also lots of space up top to sleep as well. The covered top deck is great for entertaining and lounging.

Moored on a ball five rows back from the fast water, you're well positioned to not have to deal with extreme boat wakes.

The slip is transferable and is currently $324/month. This includes free pumpouts at the marina, or an $80 fee if the mobile service is used.

Moreover, this boat is sized to relatively easily move her to a new water location such as the Delta, or another lake.

Dinghy included: Paddleboat

Information On Condition

Significant work was performed in 2005 to upgrade this houseboat: a new engine was installed along with new cabinetry and flooring, she was hauled and her pontoons sand-blasted and painted. She's shows like a boat of much younger vintage.

Battery banks are charged with solar panels overhead which provide plenty of power after the sun goes down. In June 2018 all six house batteries were replaced.

Engine hours are unknown as there is no hour meter, but boat rarely leaves the ball so hours should be relatively low.

Regular engine and mechanical maintenance performed annually. Local mechanic has all the records and can attest to her annual oil/fluid change.
