The Houseboat Up Close And Personal

Several weeks ago I told you about the houseboat we spotted off the MacArthur Causeway on Star Island in Miami Beach. Today we actually got to see what was inside.

As luck would have it, we have a TV producer friend who was doing a story about the floating mansion. She needed some help with on camera reactions to the houseboat, so Eliot and I, and Ruth and Howard, were recruited. It was so much fun. We all took turns playing on-air personalities.

The inside of the 4,300 square foot structure is just spectacular. You feel like you are floating on the sea from every angle. You are completely free and relaxed. The water, which is just inches away, mesmerizes you with its constant movement,

The three bedroom houseboat, built by a company called Arkup, is selling for over $6 million. Arkup is a manufacturer of fully solar-electric, mobile and self-elevating livable yachts. They should be congratulated. This over-the-top houseboat is a total fantasy trip. Every modern convenience was included, so living on the water is a dream come true. It never tires.
