1979 Gibson 12 x 42 House in Royal, Arkansas

Stock #228288

Make new memories in this 1979 Gibson 42 foot houseboat located on beautiful Lake Quachita near Hot Springs, Arkansas; slip is available.

In 2019 this boat was pulled out and had a fresh bottom job and paint; upgrades include a new freshwater pump, new water heater, new flooring, new fuel lines, new dinette table, and new front A/C unit.

With 2 berths in under front deck cabin and a fold-down coach, it can sleep 6; if more sleeping accommodations are needed, the recliners will fold flat to make it up to 8

New stairs were built for easy access to top decks.

This is a great time of year for Eagle watching on a houseboat on Lake Quachita.

Information On Condition

This Gibson houseboat is in good shape, engines and generator run good, controls on top and lower helms all work, all appliances are in good working condition, only thing seller can think of that doesn't work is the fuel gauge, has a measuring stick to determine fuel capacity.

It is lake ready!
