Ever wondered what happened to MacGyver's houseboat after filming was over? Was it destroyed? sold? moved?

Well it was sold and is used today in Vancouver as a private home.

Thanks to Landsend (the owner of the houseboat) MacGyver Online has exclusive pictures of what the Houseboat looks like today.

Take a photographic tour of the original Houseboat used to film MacGyver and see how it looks today

Hey, I just took the tour on the houseboat pictures. These are great. Though it's not easy to think like in reverse. So the lounge is now the kitchen and kitchen is the lounge in real life? Addings, enlargings...

Maybe we can make an extra houseboat gallery on how it looked on the show in which episodes and than I think it would be easier to make comparisons to what was where and what has been altered since.

Just a thought, though.

Thanks for the wonderful pics, Rocky. I have no idea of how big the houseboat really was until now. From the outside I could not imagine it has at least 3 bedrooms, 3 showers/washrooms, a kitchen, a living room and a laundry, not to mention lounge areas and a fire place! On second though it could all be possible given the fact that it did house a team of filming crew and actors at that time.

Um... it doesn't.

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. And the lounge,kitchen, open areas and fireplace can all be seen in the show. wink.gif

laugh.gif maybe.

I've just added an interesting piece of information to the page.

QUOTE
The upstairs area is built off-square to the bottom floor of the house. Much like two blocks on top of each other with the top one skewed like an 8 pointed star. This goes someway to explaining how the upstairs area has been changed. The angle of the skew has probably been altered to accommodate the new bedroom area.


So if you take a couple of pieces of paper of the same size and shape; Lay them on top of each other and then twist the top one in a clock wise position until it forms a star like shape you have the general idea of how the houseboat is laid out. smile.gif

Wow... it's bigger than I thought. All those bedrooms and bathrooms. I guess Mac needed SOME privacy in his own place. I like the new blue color. So the name "Land's End" is the model name, does that mean there are OTHERS out there just like it???

blush.gif Actually that was an error on my part. I've just confirmed with the owner that Land's End is the boats registration name, not the model name.

I've corrected the information on the page accordingly.

It would be interesting capture some pics of the Houseboat from MacGyver TV Show, interiors and exteriors, and compare with the pics of the Houseboat today.

Yeah, biggrin.gif . It īs right, but I meant some pics together to compare, on the lef the MacGyver pic and on the right the real pic, or something like this.

Anyway thanks for the pics. I know that all this web page needs many work and many time. And itīs a very, very good page in design, information, pics and videos.

Just a thought....I wonder if TV will ever put on a MacGyver show marathon (and show the houseboat like it used to be), like MTV did back in the early 90s for the Monkees? That would be so awesome.

I've added a comparisons page on my ever increasing to-do list. But in the mean time there's this Houseboat Gallery

Although this will depend somewhat on the reply I get back from the owners about where the internal scenes where shot.

It's great to know that the houseboat is real. For the longest time I wasn't sure if they shot interior scenes in a studio or not. To find out that it was the real deal is sweet.

Personally though, I liked the look of the original houseboat over the remodeled version.

Someday if I have the money, I would love to recreate the houseboat to have as a second home.

I've just updated the houseboat page to confirm that internal scenes where shot on a sound stage.

The owner hasn't been able to find definite answers for us yet, but I believe that with Nordmarks colleague giving confirmation as well as the various bits of evidence and scenes we have which all show the interior of MacGyver's house being somewhat different to the real house, we have the evidence to back up this idea.

I think the gray was actually just the bare wood wasn't it? Which would explain why it had to be painted I guess. laugh.gif

I would think the shipping cost of moving it from Vancouver to U.K for somethign of that size would be pretty high.

The current owners of the MacGyver houseboat are putting it up for sale.

You can follow the progress in renovating and preparing the float home for sale on their blog

And you can read the news item about it here.

There's a cute video on YouTube the owners put up. The ending is kinda funny. lol

Nothing says, "good idea" like owning a floating house with a bunch of people that you only know from a website. smile.gif


Just imagine all the fun we could have together. laugh.gif

When a woman from Norway asks me to imagine all the fun we could have together, my thoughts go to... non PG-13 material. smile.gif

Oops! blush.gif

Hahaha!! laugh.gif

If I could afford it I'd buy it and turn it into a MacGyver museum.

KiwiTek, I've thought the same thing.

If I could afford it, I'd hire contractors to re-do the exterior to the way it looked on "MacGyver".

I've also thought that if I had the money, I'd hire a builder to build me a float home that looks just like Mac's both on the outside and the inside, using the actual pieces from the set. I'm sure some of them still exist somewhere.

On a separate but related note, I LOVE the coffee table Mac had in front of his couch in the float home. Most coffee tables are too small and too dainty. Mac's was solid looking and very manly.

Speaking of coffe tables. The worst one I ever had was about 3' by 1-1/2' and it was made up of a bunch of parallel slats about 1 inch wide with about 1 inch in between them. It looked sort of like an extendable finger board, like the kind you use to make a platform between two ladders.

Dumbest table I've ever seen.
