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

WHOA! I came here today just looking for a little boat I could make to look like it's tied up at a dock. I didn't expect much. THIS is amazing. The animated boat is incredible. Now I want to build a whole marina.

THANK YOU FreshPrince. I've had your cars in my game for a long time, so of course you have awesome boats too. You Rock!
