Plan 90's - Dreamliner

 This 72' floating castle offers your crew the cruise of a lifetime, a peacefully quiet hide-a-way.

Fantastic, Unbelievable, beyond our wildest dreams, are but a few of the comments heard as guests board the Dreamliner. It's everything you ever wanted in a luxury houseboat. Six private cuddy cabins with queen size beds and vanity sink afford privacy not found in houseboating ‘til now. A queen size hide-a-bed in the salon area allows wheel chair access to all of the total main level. In a Dreamliner you can berth a maximum crew of 12!




The spacious galley boasts a large 12 seat dinning table, gas-electric refrigerator (small freezer), gas range with oven, microwave oven, electric coffee maker and toaster. You won’t miss your favorite games with the Satellite TV and DVD player (bring your own copies). The 135 HP Mercury outboard has full electronic controls with hydraulic steering which easily lets you pilot in the air conditioned comfort of the salon living area or in warming sunshine topside with the whole gang.





On fly bridge or the sun deck with partial canopy cover, everyone will soak in all God's wonders and beauty as you enjoy soft music while cruisin' delightful Dale Hollow Lake, (bring copies of your favorite CD's for the stereo). Your floating castle is fully outfitted with carpet inside and out on the lower decks, two full baths with showers.

Customer Comments

Just a few comments received from our satisfied customers!


  •  Hello Patty,
       Just to let you know that DM and I are back in Kingsport, TN and already talking about another visit in the Spring for bass fishing. Give our best to Pat, "Bim" and all the staff who treated us with nothing but respect and kindness. We have not ever experienced such a family atmosphere as is found at your lovely resort - it has kept the simple comfort of days gone by. All that you advertise in the resort booklet is what you can expect during one's stay. Thanks again.
