This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Important Info!

All 3 boats are found in Decor./Sculptures. The Animated boat requires Seasons! This boat has to be placed using move objects on in the ocean. To click on the Animated boat, you must click on the anchor at the bottom. ALSO, for the animated boat, it is recommended to choose a color first before placing down in order to enable design mode on that boat!

For the Decor Base game water boat, moveobjects on must also be used to place in water.

After you have read all of that, I love this boat! There are 3 versions, an animated Seasons version, a decorative base game water version, and a decor base game land version. All fit for anyone! All boats cost $2,000 each in game!
Enjoy this really cool boat for your simmies! :D

You never cease to amaze me.

You can find me on the Sims 4 Gallery as DozerfleetProd. If you have XBox One or PS4, please test out my creations, and let me know if / how well they work on consoles.

Totally awesome... can't wait to try it out ingame 'cos I am playing Sims 2 again - I don't like Sims 3

I've never been married, but I tell people I'm divorced so they won't think something is wrong with me.

Amazing job!! I could be mistaken here... but I think it requires Bon Voyage to work, because I know in Seasons you don't have the the ocean or beach front properties.

Keep up the great work.

I know that this may be asking for a lot, but can you possibly make a pirate ship like this?

and another awesome creation that my EP-filter has sorted out and I have to find by complete accident... These are the most greatest deco boats I've ever seen! Tempts me to grungify it and build a whole port around it...

Check out Omicron-Simtauri, my new space project!
