New Custom Built, Amenity-Laden Houseboats to Launch on Lake Powell

Lake Powell Resorts & Marinas Introduces 59-foot, State-Of-The-Art “Wanderer” Fleet

PAGE, Ariz.—(March 27, 2017) — With summer travel season around the corner, Lake Powell Resorts & Marinas announced the newest addition to its diverse fleet of houseboats – the Wanderer. Six new custom-built Wanderer houseboats, offering bountiful amenities and the latest in houseboating comfort and technology, will be available for rental in June.

The Wanderers are 59-ft. long and 18-ft. wide, featuring a monohull design with four queen-sized staterooms, two bathrooms, a screened upper deck driving helm that includes a wet bar and a barbeque. On the top deck, guests will enjoy convertible dinettes, a 48-inch LED TV with Blu-ray players and an enclosed waterpark-inspired spiral tube slide. The Wanderer was specially built for Lake Powell with a reverse design, which places living areas in the aft section of the boat. This design maximizes views of the stunning scenery from all living areas while allowing for greater privacy in the bedrooms. The Wanderer can accommodate up to 12 passengers.

“Designed expressly to make the most of everything Lake Powell has to offer, this new deluxe houseboat truly elevates the stay-and-play-on-the-water adventure,” said Kelly Zwierzchowski, district manager for Aramark and Lake Powell Resorts and Marinas. “With pristine views of both the water and the dramatic surrounding canyons, and all the modern comforts of home at your fingertips, the Wanderer will provide vacationers an unforgettable houseboating experience.”    

Boating enthusiasts have welcomed the news that The U.S. Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Reclamation projects inflows to Lake Powell to be 134% of average in 2017. With the increased water levels at the lake and the opportunity to vacation on these next-generation Wanderer houseboats, the guest experience at Lake Powell, which boast 186 miles of water and 96 canyons, will truly be redefined.

The 18-foot width of the Wanderer is two full feet wider than most four bedroom houseboats, making this deluxe houseboat ideal for a guys’ getaway or for other groups such as multi-generational families who like vacationing together, while still enjoying the comfort and privacy of their own spacious staterooms. In addition, Lake Powell Resorts and Marinas offers an array of rentals ranging from powerboats, to water toys that include ski tubes, wakeboards, kayaks, water skis, paddle boards, and kneeboards.

The Wanderer is now available to book for June departures and beyond.  For more information or to make a reservation, call 888.896.3829 or visit
