Get Tickets to Tour SW House Boats


In its biennial boat-home tour, SW DC’s colorful liveaboard community opens its doors to visitors on Oct. 7 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The self‐guided tour at Gangplank Marina takes visitors inside up to 20 of the most fun and unique boat homes. Owners and docents will also be available to answer questions about the liveaboard lifestyle. This is only the fifth time that the homes of Gangplank Marina have been open to the public.

Gangplank Marina is the largest liveaboard community on the East Coast. For over 30 years, it has been home to a diverse group including professionals, families, artists, retirees, scientists, members of Congress and members of the military. Advance purchased is required at $25 per person, but only $20 for 20024 zip code residents. The tour always sells out. Purchase tickets at Proceeds benefit local charities.
