The Houseboat is essentially a home on a boat, hence the name. It does not transport cargo nor does it earn the player money except for the usual 20 Credits per 0.1nmi.
The Houseboat sports a white exterior with a red stripe going around the boat in the middle. The exterior floors are made out of the Wooden Planks material, however, the bridge sports a redish-brown marble material with a redish-brown plastic canopy supported with two poles and two 'fins'. The top deck has a wooden dining table with four wooden chairs. There is also a hot tub made out of grey marble on a redish-brown marble floor which sits on top of the wooden planks floor. There are grey railings on both sides of the top deck to prevent players from going overboard. At the back of the ship is a spiral staircase which links both decks.
On the lower deck, inside, is a three-seat sofa with an oval wooden table which faces an inoperable TV. To the left of the table and sofa is a pantry/bar. The pantry has a cabinet, stove/oven, and another cabinet with numerous bottles in different colours. There are four rooms on the lower deck accessible from the corridor. Going from front-left to bottom-right is a drawing room, bathroom, and two bedrooms with a queen-size bed for two people.
