Thus, a charming new vessel was born. Her name is Casey's Capt. Carl and her mission to combine the tranquility of a private marina with the dynamic seaside city experience.
Now it is our turn to marvel at this floating abode. The Capt. Carl houseboat awaits us - so let's jump on board to sail smoothly into today's tour.
Made with stunningly polished wooden materials, the Capt. Carl is located just minutes away from Newport's downtown area. For the keen sailors among us, the Newport Ship Yard is just around the corner.
A charming deck area allows guests to enjoy the soothing seaside views.
The green chairs match the exterior quite well too.
As we head toward its doors, Casey's Capt. Carl welcomes us in the friendliest way you can imagine.
Large windows and sliding doors bring plenty of natural lighting into the interiors. Guests can enjoy the comfort of a spacious couch and charming dining area as soon as they step into their temporary residence.
You get to enjoy the beautiful vistas no matter where you settle.
Who would have thought that a porthole could serve as decor? Pretty clever, if you ask us.
The kitchen/galley is very much complete and even has a bar bench too. Walking up that ladder will lead you to the ship's sleeping quarters.
There are two bedrooms in Casey's Capt. Carl, making it ideal for vacationing families. This one has a slider which grants you access to the upper decks. According to the listing, the outer railings are not quite complete, but the area is perfectly safe to use.
Throughout this houseboat, interesting pieces of wall art invite us to feel right at home. As you can see, the bedrooms are no different.
This is the second bedroom. Smaller, but we imagine just as comfy as the first. In case you're wondering how Kathy managed to fit two bedrooms upstairs, these are actually open space and adjacent to each other.

Common wisdom tells us innovation is driven by the desire to fill an empty void. Tiny living spaces are a testament to this, but not in the same way as the houseboat endeavors we're delving into today.
