M/S Knut is a quite large "snekke", a boat that has long tradition in the Nordic countries, even back to the Vikings. M/S Knut was built in 1938, but has been modernized to meet the demands of a modern family. It has no space under deck, to avoid problems for the sims who wants to go fishing. The cabin is not big, but practical, and the boat can accommodate up to four sims (two in sleepingbags on sun deck).

Lotsize: 12x8 (10 x 14)
Price furnished: 19 640
Price unfurnished: 13 489
Fully furnished and decorated

2 playable floors
Ground floor: Cabin with cooking facilities and sleeping quarters
First floor: Sun deck

You MUST have the EP Island Paradise to make a houseboat work in your game.
I would also recommend the SP Outdoor Living. Some single elements from EP's University, Late Night, Showtime and Pets are used but if you don't have them, the items will be replaced with items from the basic game.

Additional download for decor elements on the shelves:
Teacup, flour, egg, saucepan, oil bottle, Salt & Pepper and Instant coffee from Around the Sims.

Happy Simming!

Lot Size: 1x2
Lot Price: 19.640

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.

One of the few houseboats I've seen that actually looks seaworthy. A boat you can live on rather than a house that will float (until the next wave comes along).

It's small, it's cramped, it's basically a camper van without wheels.

And my salty skipper sim will probably love it. It's perfect for a Loves The Outdoors Sailor. Thanks!
