1985 Lawson 54 House in Bossier City / Shreveport, LA

Stock #159422

This the 1985 Gibson / C-Yacht / Lawson 54 Houseboat

Gibson has made some of the most iconic houseboats ever produced. They all have that look you think of when someone says "Houseboat" and they are very, very well-built vessels.

During their history in business, one of the Gibson brothers split off to build his vision of the Gibson Houseboat. While they looked very much alike from the outside, there were differences in the size and interior layout. Sadly, there just isn't much information available about these particular boats.

That said, here's what we can see and touch.

This boat is not big- IT'S HUGE!

As such, it's powered by twin Crusader 454 V-8 engines that are 300 HP each. This massive boat can be piloted from the comfort of the main cabin, or from the fresh air of the very large upper deck seated at the fly-bridge.

It has two roof air that produce 13,500 BTU of summertime cold air, and a Central AC / Heat Pump to boot. When not connected to shore power, this boat can keep things humming with its Kohler 65 KW generator.

Inside you'll find more room than most apartments and as much room as many condos. The main salon offers a near panoramic view through its large windows overlooking the spacious bow deck and port and starboard walkways.

As you enter the man salon you'll see a very spectacular ships wheel and equally impressive control panel that's sure to be a conversation starter with friends and family. There's a large sofa sleeper and full-size bar, lots of seating and LOTS of floor space just to name a few features.

Located beside the ship's wheel are steps that lead down to the half bath and cuddy stateroom. Let me tell ya, this is a kids dream bedroom.

Back in the main salon as you head towards the aft section of this huge vessel, you'll come to a very classy wet bar trimmed with timeless brass rails. Next to this is another (larger) stairway leading down to the lower living quarters and master stateroom.

At the bottom of the stairs, you'll find a cozy breakfast nook and a very large full-sized and well-equipped kitchen. Just outside the master stateroom is the full bath complete with toilet, sink, vanity and shower. The master bedroom is spacious and surrounded on three sides with large windows. There's plenty of closet space and drawers, as well as a ceiling fan right over the bed.

Let's not forget they equally massive deck space this wonder vessels provides. The bow deck is partially covered and offers a wonderful space for coffee or just being with a few special friends.

The aft-deck is really spacious and has room for several tables. This deck also steps down to a great swimmers platform. From the aft-deck its just a few steps up to the upper deck that is just crazy big. Truly, this is a Very Large deck.

From there (yes there's more) you can easily step up to the top of the world onto what I would call the captain's deck and fly-bridge. Like everything else on this vessel, this space is also very large.

To really get a sense of this great boat, look at the pictures, watch the video, and by all means, send us your questions. As stated at the beginning of this, there's just not a lot of information available for this boat. As more is discovered this listing will be updated.

The owner says this boat has served his family very well and it's ready now for you and your family and friends!

Information On Condition

This boat appears to be in surprisingly good shape considering its age. There are signs of wear that anyone should expect to find on anything from 1985.

The owner of this boat has said there are a few things that need some attention. The fuel gauges are acting up some and the swimmer's deck is about to be replaced. Also, he recently had the upper decks resurfaced (painted) and in a matter of weeks that began to peel. He is currently having that redone by another contractor.

Also, the compressor for the central air / heat pump is acting up. Other than these type things, the owner says this boat is ready for its next great adventure with you at the wheel.

Please don't hesitate to call us with your questions. As stated at the beginning of this, there's just not a lot of information available for this boat. As more is discovered this listing will be updated.
