Property Description

For sale is the Sara K, a 1972 houseboat, with LIVE ABOARD status at the TANTALLON MARINA (25 min. drive to DC.) http://www.tantallonmarina.com/. The vessel is currently located in Southwest DC (where it has part time -as opposed to liveaboard- status, at the Gangplank Marina. http://www.gangplank.com/)

The vessel will be located at the Tantallon Marina at the the time of sale. ALTERNATIVELY, you have the OPTION OF PURCHASING THE VESSEL FOR $24,900 and be responsible for transferring the boat to another marina, if and when the Gangplank Marina downsizes (due to current re-development of the South West waterfront.)

The Sara K makes a charming and comfortable home on the water, within easy commuting distance to DC (25 min,) Alexandria, VA (10 min,) National Harbour, MD (10 min,) etc.

Easily sleeps five adults (can sleep seven if you put a bed in the saloon/cockpit.) It has two bunks in the cuddy cabin, a dinette table that folds down into a double bunk, and a built-in couch.

The head (bathroom) has been renovated and includes a separate shower and new vanity. Some boat owners prefer to use the showers provided at the marina. The marina’s showers and restrooms are free to slip-holders, but the shower and toilet on the boat are completely sufficient.

The galley (kitchen) includes a newly installed stove/oven, an apartment-sized refrigerator, microwave, and deep sink.

The dinghy (the K SARA) is included in the purchase, and will provide hours of fun, fishing, visiting neighbours, or just enjoying nature’s beauty.

The boat has TOP DECK with BUILT-IN SEATING, as well as a COVERED FRONT DECK. Enjoy the breathtaking VIEWS from your deck. See pictures from the marina at http://www.tantallonmarina.com/Rates.html.

Monthly slip fee for the Sara K $431, including Live-aboard fee, and includes FREE PARKING in the marina’s parking lot. If you pay slip fees for a whole year, you get a bonus, which brings the fees down to $395/ month. See http://www.tantallonmarina.com/Rates.html.

The current engine is old, and not presently operational. It’s a 225 hp Chrysler 8-cylinder gasoline-powered inboard/outboat, and has two 47-gallon galvanized fuel tanks.) If we were to stay on the boat, we would have taken out the old engine and fuel tanks, and put on an outboard motor instead. This would allow ENOUGH SPACE TO BUILD A SMALL DEN, and fit a full bed, in what is now the engine room.

The Sara K features SIGNIFICANT UPGRADES, including: Three-burner electric stove/oven, two Boatsafe heaters, all new pumps (new freshwater, shower, and bilge pumps, new accumulator tank,) and updated electrical wiring. Teak handrails and stanchions were recently rebuilt and new flooring and curtains installed. Other amenities include a 100-gallon freshwater tank, 6-gallon water heater, and 18-gallon black water holding tank. Air-conditioning was upgraded in the summer of 2012.

Latest Marine Inspection was done in Feb. 2012.

Internet/Cable is available through the marina.

Laundromat located in the marina.

Our time on the Sara K has been condo-like living on the water, and we want to make sure that Sara K goes to someone who will like her as much as we have :)

    An interesting discussion is worth comment. I do believe that
    you ought to write more about this subject matter,
    it may not be a taboo subject but typically folks don’t speak
    about such topics. To the next! Cheers!!
