Virginia firefighters sell $49,000 pirate ship-themed houseboat from Northumberland County

Northumberland County, Va. (WIC) – If you’ve ever dreamed of sailing in the 17th century, a recent Facebook listing might just be for you.

In the year In an August 16 post, retired Northumberland County firefighter Dan Corder put his ‘bandit houseboat’ up for sale, asking a modest $49,000.

This isn’t the first time Corder has ventured into the pirate ship business. In the year In 2019, he sat down with WAVY News in Norfolk to talk about what it was like to be the 24th converted boat.

His latest creation didn’t start with the amazing themed cruiser now floating on the Potomac River.

“He’s been dead in one of our local marinas,” Corder said. The boat was originally intended to be occupied by an elderly couple, but one of them tragically passed away and the boat sat untouched on the slipway.

The marina owner eventually contacted Corder because he said he had become known for turning damaged vessels into buccaneering masterpieces.

“It’s probably the best thing I’ve ever done,” he said. But certainly not the last.

The boat has 2 beds and 1 1/2 baths and has an outboard motor that has been installed with a corder to replace the existing inboard motor.

Anyone looking to buy the boat should act fast because Corder has received calls from as far away as Florida, California and Australia. However, the cost of transporting the ship over long distances can be very expensive, so currently the most promising buyer is a resident of Elizabeth City, North Carolina.

As for what to do with it, buyers may be tempted to take it to the pirate life, but Corder has a better idea: “I think the best use for this would be like a floating Airbnb.”
