A Stardust Cruiser is not just a boat, itís a lifestyle. Houseboating brings family and friends together in a fun, active and relaxing environment that is loved by all ages and generations.
On a Stardust, you can seek the beautiful quiet and solitude of
a private cove, or join in with your neighbors for fun at
the dock or on the water. You are likely to meet some of your
best friends at the lake.
Everyone is there for the same reason - to relax, cut loose and enjoy life. The constant interruptions of daily life are left on shore. This page is dedicated to those fortunate enough to participate in the houseboating lifestyle. Click here to e-mail pictures of your great times at the lake or on your Stardust.
There was a recent poll asking what made people happy. The number one activity
in that poll revealed that sharing meals was what made people the happiest.
Social interaction is a necessary part of life.
This revelation goes against our home life where we value our solitude and relax in our private back yards or get lost and zone out in front of the television.
Relaxing on a houseboat lies in stark contrast to the average home life. The houseboat lifestyle harkens back to a time when people relaxed on their front porches that were situated essentially on the street. The social interaction of those relaxing on the front porch and those passing by was an integral part of the lifestyle.
Houseboating brings back that social interaction that we've tried so hard to evade. Our homes today are private enclaves that get us away from all the drudgery of daily life. Houseboating on the other hand is a getaway, taking us out of the everyday routine, but allows us the front-porch social interaction of relaxing on the front deck and interacting with those neighbors walking the dock.
Meals tend to be social engagements where dock mates create impromptu potluck events that may include a sunset cruise. These relaxed social meals are just on of the reasons houseboat owners are so addicted to this lifestyle. Owning a houseboat affords you the opportunity to engage in the houseboating lifestyle. Some houseboat owners love the social interaction of the dock while other houseboat owners love being rafted up in a secluded cove with a close-knit group. The houseboat lifestyle also allows you solitude if you choose. If you truly need to get away from it all, you can take it with you and find that secluded cove away from everything.
Owning a houseboat provides many options that are not possible with other vacation and second home alternatives. The fun and possibilities are endless. Happiness is owning a houseboat.
