1985 Custom Built 48 House in Montegut, Louisiana

Stock #203808

This 1985 seller-designed and built houseboat has all the comforts of home while enjoying time on the water. The seller has been using it for many years and its mechanical components have been well maintained.

It has a diesel main engine, a diesel generator, a large diesel fuel tank, a pressurized freshwater system, a waste system with macerator and holding tank, as well and many other features. It has both fore and aft bilge pump systems with an alarm.

Whether it's cruising to the local barrier islands or simply in the inland waterways, this houseboat provides everything needed.

This houseboat also has a 1500 lb. ice hold.

Information On Condition

It is powered by a Chrysler CM6-55 marine diesel engine with a heat-exchanger. It cruises at 7 miles per hour and only utilizes 7-8 gallons per hour of diesel.

It was constructed utilizing Hand-Laid C-Flex unidirectional fiberglass building material originally developed for the manufacturing of custom boats.

The houseboat includes an Isuzu heat exchanged diesel engine driving a Stamford 11 KW A.C. generator. It provides plenty of power while underway as well as when stationary with no shore power availability. It includes a 60 Amp shore power connection with the shore power cord.

The dining area/galley has a 30" residential stove/oven, microwave, under-counter coffee maker, toaster oven, and full sink.

Sleeping accommodations include one berth with 4 twin beds and a second adjoining berth with a queen-size bed. The bathroom includes the sink, toilet, and full size shower.

The heat exchanged 3 ton (36,000 BTU) Air Conditioning system keeps it very comfortable on those hot summer days and nights.

The hand-laid C-Flex fiberglass hull is 48'x16'. The cabin width is 12'

The houseboat was dry-docked in March of 2019 for bottom cleaning and coating.
