4 Features for an Ideal Boathouse

While they can range from stylish living quarters to unfinished spaces, here are a few features that make for the ideal boathouse.   

Boat Storage

Of course, the whole point is to provide a place to keep your boat, so there should be a slip, or two, where it can be tied up.

Outdoor Seating

It could be as simple as a few chairs on the dock, however, some homeowners choose to add more elaborate features, like a wet bar or barbecue area.  


A boathouse is particularly vulnerable to harsh conditions, so it’s crucial to make sure that it’s built to last.

Finished Space

Chances are you’ll want to do more than just store your boat here. For homeowners who have a boathouse, it’s quite common to turn it into a finished space.
