The 46' Expedition houseboat is one fo the most popular because it is economical with
the ability to sleep up to 6 people, with a capacity for 12. For the 2010 season, it is available at Bullfrog and Wahweap Marinas.
The 46' Expedition can be difficult to secure and if this is the houseboat you want for
your vacation, we recommend you reserve well in advance of your departure date.
There is one private stateroom, one pull out sofa sleeper, a dinette that converts to a bed and one bathroom. This boat features a water slide, depth finder/fish finder, upper
deck sun shade.
The 46' Expedition is easy to manuever and uses less fuel than the luxury houseboats and is more like "camping" on the water. An 8 KW generator
means you get 15,000 BTU air conditioning. You even get a 20" TV, DVD and CD player. The 46' Expedition houseboat is available at Wahweap and Bullfrog.
Pets are allowed on this houseboat and the fees vary from free to $25 or more (can be
added at any time during the reservation process). Linens and bedding are not provided with this houseboat.
All Lake Powell houseboats are fully stocked with all eating utensils
provided for the maximum capacity allowed on the boats, e.g. if you have a 46 foot Expedition, the capacity is twelve, therefore, you would be
provided with all necessary eating utensils required for twelve people.
Cooking utensils include bowls, pots, pans, cheese grater, cutting board, cutlery, pitcher, coffee pot (stove top), hot pads, ice pick, and wine opener
. We have recommendations for what you should bring, along with other tips for planning a houseboat trip listed on our partner website at www.houseboatfun.com.
Also included on each houseboat is a broom,
dustpan, mop, bucket, flyswatter, garbage cans, garbage bags, toilet paper, toilet bowl brush and bucket, shampoo, soap, dishwashing liquid, dish drainer and mat, dish rags and pot scrubbers.
Outdoor equipment and supplies include two anchors and lines, deck chairs, captain's chair, ash trays, 150 quart ice chest, personal floatation devices (life vests), and gas grill.
All houseboats have a stove and range, a refrigerator, a shower, a toilet, window coverings, heater, dining room table, interior and
exterior lights, as well as stairs to the roof of the houseboat which is fully accessible by you.
Fresh drinking water is
provided on each boat and may be refilled at any marina. You may also have your holding tanks pumped out. Although the need for a pump out varies based on the number of passengers
and water usage, a good rule of thumb is to return to a pump out station every three or four days.
Standard amenities: Sleeps 10, maximum 12. $600 damage/confirmation deposit.
