Silver Glen Houseboat  //  Nice inside and out!

blog-SG-LAKEGEORGE

All of our boats are 60 feet long and sleep eight to ten people. The US Coast Guard maximum people allowed onboard is 12, unless accompanied by one of our licensed captains. Twin Engines in the stern allow customers with even modest boating skills to operate these monsters with relative ease. We think you’ll agree that the SilverGlen is one nice boat!

The Front Deck

Our boat has a large (15×15 foot) front deck, complete with patio furniture and a nice new (2009), 3-burner propane grill, and a very large cooler.To see what supplies you should bring, browse our INFO section

The Top Decks

The view cannot be beat from up here! There is a very large upper deck, with plenty of room for parties or sunning. We had a 5 piece roack and roll band set up here before! There is also a flybridge, for driving up top. We have plenty of tables and chairs. See what else you should bring by browsing our info section

Bathrooms

There are two baths on each boat. One bathroom has a shower, the other is just a half-bath. Both come with marine-grade toilets. The dimension of the shower door is 20″. We supply towels, toilet paper, tissues but to see what extra supplies you need to bring, browse our INFO section

Engines

Our 60ft Sunstar and Horizon Houseboat Cruisers are powered along easily by 2 inboard/outdrive 4 cylinder GAS Mercruisers. Alpha 1 Drives hang down approx 1 ft from the bottom of the boat – which gives the boats a 3.5ft draft.

Drive engine Gas consumption mostly depends on rpm, with weight and balance a deciding factor also. At cruising speed of 9mph, 3-4 GPH PER ENGINE is an appropriate estimate.

Our 12.5kw Westerbeke Generators have handled all sorts of loads – including 5 piece rock bands and electric health devices.

The Air conditioning units are a standard household unit – and when on the genset burns upwards of 2 GPH. Winter Months will make the generator burn less fuel as there is not a lot of heat needed down here! We provide the initial tank of gas, 10 extra gallons, Tow ropes for PWCs or other boats and a toolkit. To see what supplies you should bring, browse our INFO section
