1988 50' Skipperliner Houseboat


This nice Skipperliner houseboat has gone through extensive renovations over the past 5 years, both structurally and cosmetically, including a complete remodel of the interior.  The interior of this boat was completely stripped out and replaced with tasteful, updated residential finishes and fixtures making this houseboat a perfect liveaboard boat.  From the large open forward deck, a full-size sliding glass door leads into the cabin.  The main salon features the helm station to starboard, a nice comfortable and open sitting area, the large U-shaped galley to port with a forward serving counter.  The bathroom is to starboard with a separate stall shower.  Across from the bathroom is a large storage / service / pantry room with large bult-in storage cabinets. The main stateroom is aft and features a large full length closet to starboard, which includes stacked wash & dryer. From the stateroom, a full-size sliding glass door leads to the aft sundeck area and spiral stair to the roof deck.  In addition to a complete interior renovation, the steel hull was professionally serviced / restored, including new epoxy coating on the interior and black epoxy paint on the exterior, and the twin Volvo 4.3 GL sterndrive engines have been serviced with one replaced, all at a reputable local delta boatyard.  Boat was hauled at and inspected at local boatyard in May of 2023.  This boat can make a vacation getaway or full-time liveaboard vessel for the Delta or Bay.
