Chillin N Paradise - Bullfrog Marina
52' Boatel -
$3500 for 1
share week SOLD
Annual dues = $1000/yr.
share week falls on the last week in June,
(never includes July 4th). It's
available this year 2012, so hurry if you're interested, this won't last
very long, the price is right if you're on a budget. To rent a
boat like this would be $4000/wk. It only takes 2yrs to be money
ahead, and you still have owner equity after that.
You also get a second week either in
the "off season" to
go fishing or whatever, or during prime season if someone is not going
to use their share. An extra $350 dollar maintenance fee is charged for
this extra week if used.
First put in the water in 2001,
this boat is well maintained on a
strict maintenance schedule. The boat manager is also an owner and is
very good about responding and fixing things a.s.a.p.
Asking Price: $3,500 (Paid
$11,500.00 in 2001)
Moored in a covered slip at Executive Docks at
Bull Frog Marina, Lake Powell, Utah. Bullfrog provides carts to
haul your luggage, etc to the docks. There is
a small store on the dock for small items and ice, and a larger store
close by, but it is best if the owner would bring most of what is needed
for the week. The north end of the lake from
Bullfrog is less crowded and close (25mi) to the jewel of the lake,
Escalante Arm where the best and tallest slot canyons are located.
This canyon is over 50mi from Wahweap Marina, a long haul to see the
"good stuff" of the lake.
Maintenance = $1000 per year + ~$350 per extra week
on occasion when special assessments
are needed for upgrades,
etc. There are 20 share owners, a
very amicable group,
and the boat managers are very knowledgeable and
easy to deal with. The best thing about
this houseboat is you save about $500 (compared to other shared
ownership boats) by doing your own cleaning, pumping, and watering, and
gassing of the boat. However, if you'd rather pay for this work to
be done, these services are available, just not mandatory like other
Boatel houseboats are very sturdy with steel
pontoons that can withstand a beating from the
rocky sandy beaches of Lake Powell.
an exceptional reputation for longevity and reliability,
plus they are easy to handle and maneuver in the water.
They do not have as many frills as some of the luxury boats do,
but as you can see from the photos, it is comfortable and allows a
person to relax, which is what going to the lake is all about.
Less frills minimizes maintenance, which
minimizes annual dues. This is an excellent choice for a an
individual or family that just wants to annually
chill on Lake Powell, plus it's one of
the few shared ownership boats at the lake that allows pets.

Kitchen with serving bar, however most meals are
usually eaten on the top deck in the fresh air.
Here's a view of the living room and helm.
The boat is moored in covered storage. This is
the best to minimize exposure to sun when not in use. It's also
nice in case it rains if you happen to be at dock during the beginning
or end of your trip.
The flybridge has the normal second set of navigation
controls. It's great to navigate from the top deck, and almost essential
in the late afternoon so you can see submerged rocks. Relaxing on
the top deck is heaven in the morning and late afternoon.
|The last week of June is a prime week. It's
not too hot yet (usually) and the water is starting to warm up, usually
around 76 to 77 degrees this time of year. Fishing is still good
along shear walls (chum with anchovies) for stripers. And
launching from Bullfrog is less crowded than Wahweap or Antelope
Marinas. If you live in Salt Lake, Provo, Denver, or Grand
Junction areas, this is the marina for you, it's a nice facility.
