The 46' Voyager XL is one of the newest houseboats in the fleet, offering luxury in a smaller size. This boat sleeps eight,
but has a capacity for 12. It is available only at Wahweap and Bullfrog marinas.
The 46' Voyager is recommended for smaller groups who
want the convenience of a generator, the comfort of an evaporative cooler and the added bonus of private staterooms. This boat is difficult to secure, we strongly
urge you to select a second boat type.
Bed sizes include two "gaucho" (fold down seating area about the size of a full bed and double beds in two private staterooms.
The stove, oven and refrigerator (RV size) are all propane. The light system is a DC battery, so the generator must be operated to
recharge the system. The 46' Voyager XL features a slide, 1.8 cubic foot gas grill, CD stereo, TV/VCR/DVD and marine radio. Features
GPS, depth finder, rear deck camera and an electric inverter.
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 an 46 foot Voyager, 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.
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, Voyager'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.
The 46' Voyager has twin 60 hp four-stroke Mercury outboard engines. These get 1 mpg or 14 gallons per hour. However, this is dependent on weather conditions, cargo weight and the rpm at which you run the engines.
These boats have two 70 gallon tanks and go about 10 to 12 miles per hour. This means that you have approximately 10 hours of running time,
at an approximate cost of $2 per gallon or $280 to fill the boat (gas prices fluctuate wildly). Additionally the generator uses one to two
gallons of fuel an hour while under operation. Please note the fuel prices vary with market prices. The dollar amount provided here is given as an example ONLY.
