Six NY-Area Floating Living Spaces YOU Can Live In

<p>A 2010 houseboat for <a href="http://newyork.craigslist.org/mnh/boa/3745902232.html">$35,000</a>, and if you are willing to dock in New Jersey, the slip fee there is paid all year (and includes water, electric, and cable tv).</p>


<p>This 62' circa-2001 Catamaran houseboat is in Brooklyn, <a href="http://newyork.craigslist.org/brk/bod/3811768941.html">and costs $63,500</a>. That's for a 2 bedroom, 2 bath living space which is "like having a waterfront condo with a large living area and full size kitchen, washer/dryer combo stack, baseboard heating, all the comforts of home." It also comes furnished!</p>


<p>This is Captain Gismo, and he's got everything an aspiring Brooklyn artisanalite could ask for: Vintage! Reclaimed wood! DIY project! The houseboat is 38' long, and is being sold <a href="http://newyork.craigslist.org/lgi/boa/3745223688.html">for just $6,000</a> + renovation costs.</p>



<p>Now if you like what you saw <a href="http://sfist.com/2013/05/20/this_mission_creek_houseboat_will_m.php">over in SF</a>, this is the closest thing to it. <a href="http://newyork.craigslist.org/lgi/boa/3802284563.html">This 1985 Sundance House Barge</a> is an 1100-square-foot, split-level home featuring a roof deck, spiral staircase, and lots of other awesome things you don't have in your boring land apartment.</p>


<p>Here's another house barge, this time in Rockaway. The 3 level home has 3 bedroomss, a kitchen, a bar/lounge area, and views out every window. No damage from Sandy is mentioned, though it "could use some work." The asking price: <a href="http://newyork.craigslist.org/que/bod/3811794167.html">$150,000</a>.</p>


<p>In Tottenville, you'll find a 2-story house barge for a reduced price <a href="http://newyork.craigslist.org/stn/boa/3793196268.html">of $75,000</a>. That features one bed, one bath, washer/dryer, and a generator.</p>
