The owners of the original Lands End houseboat used to film scenes of the 80ís & 90ís hit TV show, MacGyver, have confirmed on their blog that they will be putting the float-home up for sale later this year.

Located in a private undisclosed marina in Vancouver, Canada, the husband and wife owners have been living on Lands End, the vessels registered name, since January 2005, but have now decided itís time to move on and are currently in the process of renovating and repairing the houseboat to ready it for sale.
They havenít set an exact date of sale yet, saying only that it will be ďlater this summer, maybe even early fall, depending upon how long it takes to spiffy it up.Ē

The houseboat was used for filming external scenes for the show from 1987 to 1990 in Vancouver, Canada, where MacGyver was filmed from itís 3rd to 6th seasons. Although the other 3 seasons each respectively tried using a different housing situation for the shows title character, it was the Houseboat which seemed to fit best with the fans and has now become, in many fans eyes, an icon of the show; and itís this icon status throughout much of the shows considerable fan base along with a continuing fascination with MacGyver by the wider public which may very well turn this little floating home into hot property.


Take a virtual tour of the houseboat and see how it looks today

There's not mention of price yet. I guess that will come once they have finished the repairs and had it valued to local market prices.

Yeah me too. Although the inside looks quite different to what we saw in the show, but who cares... it's MacGyver's houseboat!!! biggrin.gif

if I owned this place I would invite everyone from the forum over for macgyver parties, which would involve of course macgyver running 24/7 on the tv, sports such as indoor baseketball and table hockey and maybe cook up a little bayou burned blackend redfish.

Sounds like a good plan. biggrin.gif

I probably have to tuck it to the harbors at the North Sea or Antwerp first before getting it at the rivers in town.

I like the way you think, MacIsMyDad. Seriously, living in the houseboat would make my life.
