Our boat is a 1978, 14- by 60-foot Summerset with an aluminum hull, which is rare for that time period. The rest of the boat is typical of the era of step-down boats across manufacturers and we've had it almost 10 years.

As for the name, the whole family was sitting around the table, just bouncing names out in conversation when my husband said, "Bond Voyage" and everyone agreed. He wasn't even serious. Our last name is Bond and so the name stuck. Now we couldn't imagine any other name for it.

We have such great friends that we've met because of houseboating. Our good friends decided to surprise my husband by building a tiki hut to the back of our houseboat. Friends all came by with "housewarming" tiki hut-themed gifts after it was installed.
