Adventure Craft

Niemela Industries, LLC, has added excitement to the already popular Adventure Craft houseboat with the introduction of its new 2850 DeckYacht.

Cal Niemela, the company president, is pleased with the positive response to the new DeckYacht model. According to Niemela, all of the functional improvements as well as styling enhancements and fly bridge alterations have opened up a new niche in trailerable houseboats. "With a fully-equipped cabin and a spacious sun lounging deck above, it's like having a houseboat and a toon' all in one."

The new 2850 DeckYacht features a stylized fly bridge configuration; new operator convenience packages; improved mobility through the cabin; a revamped galley area; capacity upgrades and all-new, premium entertainment options. Additionally, new enhancements to interior fabric selections and exterior color/logo treatments greatly improve the boat's overall appeal while transforming the Adventure Craft into a real "head turning" multi-use boat.

Although the Adventure Craft has undergone considerable design changes, boating enthusiasts and houseboaters will enjoy the same stable Trimaran hull design, dual helm controls and large, screened windows.
