FLORIDA - SUA - VILA PLUTITOARE


September 30, 2020: A floating wedding chapel that has been transformed into a luxury houseboat is up for sale for £300,000...The unique two-bedroom property is currently docked on the Manatee River in Palmetto, Florida. ..The vessel was formerly a wedding venue known as Chapel On The Bay but more than £1million has been spent on conversion of the property since 2004 resulting in an upmarket luxury home...Although the property has had improvements made it still retains many of its original features including a 30-feet steeple, seven stained-glass windows and 19-foot ceilings...The 1,050 square foot home sits on an 1,800 square foot barge and weighs a colossal 33 tons...The houseboat, which is currently run as an AirBnB, was listed by Brenda Thompson at specialfinds.com who said the property has been attracting interest from around the globe...She said: 'The interest has been extreme. I send the owner five to seven leads per month...'We've had interest from people all over the world - from China and Australia and just about every state in the US...'They are currently operating it as an Airbnb so you can try it out for a night.' ..The one-of-a-kind property was originally put on the market for $600,000 in 2017 and again for $425,000 in 2018...A Clearwater, Fla. couple came up with the idea of a floating chapel after seeing a similar concept in Australia during a 2004 visit...They commissioned a well-known Tampa naval architect to design and build the 60-foot, glassfiber-hulled catamaran with its distinctive blue-roofed sanctuary...Twin 115-horsepower Cummins diesels give the 33-ton vessel a top speed of nine knots, while the twin hulls were specified to make it more stable and easier to manoeuvre than a traditional flat-bottomed barge...And in place of a traditional anchor, it has twin “spud poles” - heavy duty steel tubes that can be lowered to hold the boat firmly to (Credit Image: © Cover Images via ZUMA Press)
