Now, maybe some one of you will jump at this opportunity and make a deal with the Sweetnams in time to be on board for Christmas. No, you wouldn’t be alone — last year there were 17 “liveaboards” out there at the marina in December.
Can you picture the Christmas lights at the top of all the masts? Can you imagine the shining city across the harbor? Might you be standing for a few minutes out on the upper deck on Christmas Eve, bundled up against the chill, a tasty hot toddy in your hand, a Christmas turkey in the oven, listening to someone playing “Silent Night” on that old organ you now own?

You know, we came within a whisker of buying this place ourselves.

    Do you know if this very unique home is still for sale. I want to fly over immediately from the u.k. to buy it.

    Frances Sharp: This houseboat has been recently purchased and completely renovated and updated to 2013 standards. All new appliances, windows, a total rehab inside out. We are always interested in offers. Let me know if you have any interest…
