When you hear the word “home,” what do you think? Perhaps a ranch house, or a shotgun home. Maybe a condo, or a Victorian mansion. Or, the word might draw up thoughts of a different place – a whole other state or country. Usually, a sport yacht isn’t what comes to mind. But for people who live on the water, it is home. This 40-foot extravagant 2017 Sea Ray 400 Sundancer, which docks at Captain’s Quarter Marina in Louisville, is a luxury sport yacht that has all the necessities, serving as a one-of-a-kind minimalist, tiny home on the water.

It’s a boat and a house

Though there are some people who use their boats as a permanent residence, it seems that for most Louisvillians, boating is recreational. Chip Jaworski, general manager of Sea Ray of Louisville, explained that many of the boaters he knows take short day cruises on the river, with occasional overnighters to Cincinnati. Some owners will also take their boat to another state when it gets cold, bringing it back here in the summer.

“It’s like a floating condo,” he said. “They can move back and forth from Florida to Louisville.”

If the boats stay here, they simply remain in the dock, shrink-wrapped to protect it from the elements.

“In Michigan or Cleveland,” Jaworski added, “they would have to come out of the water because those lakes freeze over. In Louisville, they don’t have to be pulled out of the water.”

He let the Courier Journal get a sneak peek of the decked-out Sea Ray ahead of the Louisville Boat, RV & Sportshow taking place later this month at the Kentucky Exposition Center, 937 Phillips Lane.
