Located on Shuswap Lake in beautiful British Columbia, Canada, Twin Anchors offers truly custom houseboat designs for both private and rental use. Models include both two-level boats and tri-decks with a full height penthouse on the second level and a third level complete with wet bar, hot tub and entertainment center. Twin Anchor boats range in length from 31- to 75-foot and feature beams from 12- to 18-foot.

Several things set Twin Anchors apart from the crowd. In addition to its in-house exterior and interior design centers is an in-house AV department to help you determine the ideal entertainment package for the cabin and the bridge. The most noticeable difference, however, is Twin Anchors' exclusive unitized cabin and bridgedeck system. This Canadian builder does not use "bolt on" bridge components, but rather integrates the cabin and bridge into a single, seamless unit. This unitized construction is also found in the standard equipment hot tub surround and built-in bridge deck seating, all molded in rather than added on later. No joints, no leaks, no rot! In addition to being NMMA certified, Twin Anchors is an ISO 9000 registered company assuring customers a quality control system second to none.

"You'll find the houseboats created by Twin Anchors Marine are indeed people's second homes. Every houseboat is as individual as its owner. Today's boats are stunningly designed, superbly crafted, performance-oriented and require low maintenance. Your dreams are our passion."

Random Realities By Ted

That's the point. Idling on the lake-I suppose that's another double entendre, but not nearly as clever-is a terrific time to do nothing but think.
