Its 10, 000 lb capacity boat lift will have you cruising down the river in no time, or you can simply laze on the dock watching the fish and birds. The waterfront deck boasts a pool, jacuzzi and sauna; if you tire of the sun the covered porch has overhead fans and a retractable awning. Inside, mount a spiral staircase to the private master suite, with a king-sized bed, luxurious bathroom with jetted tub, and huge walk-in closet.
