Bravada Houseboat in Seattle, Wash.

Published in the March 2019 Issue June 2020 Live

When you think of Bravada houseboats, your mind generally conjures images of Lake Powell since that’s where you typically find a lot of their houseboats. So imagine how pleasant a surprise it would be for you to stumble upon a Bravada in Seattle, Wash.

This is exactly the place where Rome Ventura keeps her 2014 custom Bravada houseboat—right in the middle of downtown Seattle on Lake Union. She lives on the boat full-time, year-round and can’t help but enjoy the novelty of living aboard her Bravada, roughly 1,260 miles away from Lake Powell.
