The famed Boaterhome is on its way to Las Vegas auction
This Boaterhome is a mix between a motorboat and a campervan that dates back to the 1980s, and is one out of 21 units produced in total. It is set to go on sale in Las Vegas in late June with no price estimate.
A cursory glance at the monstrous vehicle may leave you thinking it’s just an oversized stretch limo with its top/rear half stylized after a motor boat and its bottom/front half borrowed from a Ford Econoline van. However, it actually consists of a fully functional motorboat and its carrier. You can drive it on public roads as any other limo when assembled or uncouple the motorboat and hit the river.
The boat part is 8.5 meters (nearly 28 feet) long and seamlessly integrated with the Econoline cab, leaving the impression of a single, solid vehicle. The van’s chassis was lengthened to support it and now has three axles instead of just two. A tricolor livery further conceals the gap between the boat and the van.
Passengers can stay in the living space at all times, regardless of whether the boat is currently riding or floating. Found inside are a kitchen, a dining area and a bedroom, making the exotic ride a very capable amphibious campervan.
We are excited to see how much it will sell for, because there are no predictions regarding the price.
