A Monticello River Yacht boat is truly the best of both worlds, now more than ever. Its trademark is its cruiser-like performance coupled with the comfort of a houseboat with an impressive list of standard features including central vacuum, an aft-deck hot and cold shower, side-by-side refrigerator, washer/dryer stack, a deluxe entertainment center and a whole lot more.

What's the best possible combination between the luxuries of a lake boat and the performance of an aluminum planing hull houseboat? Look no further than the Monticello River Yacht, a design that redefines what a houseboat is and-judging from this particular boat line-what it can be. Every effort was made in the design of the Wide Body to blend the necessities of a houseboat while still upholding its exquisite ambience. Monticello River Yacht houseboats are built by respected custom houseboat builder Majestic, and distributed exclusively through Kentuckiana Yacht Sales based in Jeffersonville, Ind.
