I made this lot for two of my teen sims living out on their own-- sisters who would rather live their lives however they want on the open sea, fishing, diving, and occasionally raiding a few boats in their path.

Originally purchased from a skeevy dude down by the docks as broken down, dirty, and dirt cheap with pooled money from part time jobs, and a bit of "extra" income, they cleaned it and rebuilt it from the deck up. But of course, they are pirates, so they're not too concerned with maintenance.

It includes:
A fruit and herb garden on the roof to prevent scurvy.
Cat box, toys, and scratching post for your ship mouser
Washer, dryer, and clothesline for whenever you feel like washing
One bedroom with bunkbeds and and all-in-one shower
A buttload of clutter
Lot Size: 8x16 curved bow boat base
Furnished: $32,471
Unfurnished: 22,103
CC Used: If you want this lot to look exactly as pictured, you will need the DIY column by Armiel.

This lot requires the Island Paradise expansion pack

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
