Looking for a home on the water? You just found it!

This 1990 Coastal Barracuda by Holiday Mansion houseboat makes for a very nice live aboard. She is 38’ (plus swim platform) with a 12’ beam and features a solid FRP (fiberglass) V hull.

The interior of this boat has been redone to make it perfect as a floating home. Previous rain leaks from fly ridge (now removed, not available) have been addressed and repaired to make her watertight, with some interior cosmetic work needing to be completed. This area now offers potential for solar panels, or an additional recreational deck. The boat’s interior design allows for lots of living space.

As you enter the boat on the starboard side through sliding glass doors, the salon features the helm station and main living area which can also serve as an additional sleeping area.

A 15,000 BTU Dometic air and heat unit provides a high degree of comfort all year ‘round. A 6 gallon water heater was installed 3 years ago. There is also a stereo system with radio and CD player and speakers throughout the boat’s interior.

A custom set of wood steps, with hidden storage, takes you down to the Galley. A half slider provides direct access to the aft deck. The inverter is located here.

The head is equipped with a shower / bathtub combo with working water pump, a medicine cabinet and new stainless steel sink. The newer Nature’s Head composting toilet with 12v vent was an upgrade but if you don’t.want it that will take off the price.

The stateroom features two sleeping berths. There is also lots of storage space in this area.

Back up on the exterior, you are greeted with multiple levels of large decks where you can entertain, fish, watch the sunset or simply enjoy being outdoors on the water.

In the engine room are dual Volvo Penta Inboard/Outboard engines (gasoline), model AQ231A with under 900 miles. Both engines were in running order before being winterized, they were fogged and had antifreeze added. Port engine needs a little work as mentioned below. Batteries for both engines have been removed, but will be included in the sale. Also in this space is a Kohler generator, battery included, and connection to the inverter, with battery also included (so that’s 5 marine batteries).

The reflects the need for repairs to get her back to fully operational. This includes: Port engine needs raw water pump repaired and carburetor needs cleaning. Both outdrives and propellers need replacement due to salt water corrosion, as does the steering system due to previous removal of flybridge (because of rain leakage mentioned previously). UPDATE: Fuel tanks and fuel lines both need to be repaired or replaced. Price further reduced because of this.

Electrical and plumbing systems have recently been overhauled and are in operating condition. All bilge pumps and water pumps were replaced with new over the past 4 years.

This vessel was last surveyed in 2017 and found to be structurally solid and fit and in strong average condition.

She is currently on the hard waiting for the next owner. As such there is no slip lease to transfer over. I have pre-paid for launch which will transfer over to you, as well as monthly lease for storage in the boat yard (paid through end of July). Boat slips are hard to find in coastal Delaware, however there will soon be a whole marina of slips available:

UPDATES: I am sadly selling this boat at a loss due to my present financial situation. As such I cannot finance her for you. I purchased her outright, if you are unable to do the same I would suggest obtaining a boat loan, a loan through your bank, or some other source.

I am scheduling showings, and once you have viewed her and wish to proceed, I am happy to discuss the price. Variables such as selling her without marine accessories (such as shore power cables, fenders, etc.) or even without engines, generator, etc. would reduce the .

If you would like to schedule a showing, or have questions about anything not mentioned in this ad, please message me. Thank you.
