Gangplank Marina houseboat with two bedrooms, three outdoor decks

Who says you have to live on land?

This week’s featured home is a two-bedroom cabin yacht with a fully-equipped kitchen and three outdoor decks.

“It’s got a great layout and is very, very bright,”said Gordon Cameron, a broker at Hawk’s Yachts. “It’s about 80 percent window.”

The 500-square foot yacht is parked in The Gangplank Marina in Southwest Washington, the only marina in the District that allows live-aboard homes.

The yacht, which is listed for $169,000, was built in 2005. It has about 400-square feet of outdoor terrace space on three levels and offer s unique views of the Capitol, Haynes Point and the Washington Monument.

Plus, there’s one other perk of living on the water, Cameron said.

“Not everybody’s got a steering wheel in their living room,” he said
