Stunning 2 bedroom houseboat on Lake Union.
Floating on the beautiful water of East Lake Union is SeaZen Float. This beautiful vessel was built in 2007 in a very green fashion with high quality construction and the environment in mind by 2 brothers with a lot of love. One of the brothers lived there for 10 years and sold her to me now because of a relocation. She is 46 feet long, has a 15 foot beam and a 24 inch draft. She has an aluminum, barge style hull.
I added a few upgrades like the spiral staircase up to the rooftop deck and she is now available for you to come experience life on a houseboat!
There are hardwood floors on the main level that were just refinished. There are built-ins throughout the salon on the upper floor. It has a wet bar and a stone fireplace. In the galley there is a Chef's kitchen has a gas stove and stainless steel appliances. The is a new grill just outside the kitchen. There is a porch on both the bow and stern of the main level with a relaxing sitting area. There is a powder room on this level.
The 2 bedrooms are on the lower level, both have comfortable queen size beds. There is a gorgeous 5 piece bathroom with a rain shower and a separate soaking bathtub. The bathroom has in floor heating. The walk in closet of the second bedroom hosts a full sized washer and dryer.
The rooftop deck will give you a 360 view of Seattle! Even on those occasional cloudy days there are spectacular views of the city. There is a rowing club right next door. I find it fascinating to watch the crew handling their shells. There are always sailboats, electric boats, power boats, kayaks, and SUP (paddle boards) active on the water so there is a lot to look at and enjoy while you are sitting relaxing and sipping on your favorite beverage. I do have a couple of kayaks if you want to get out on the lake and paddle around yourself.
Historic Gas Works Park is a 19 acre public park on the North side of Lake Union. It was the former Seattle Gas Light Company gasification plant. It is now a place that locals and tourists flock to and enjoy year round!
Ivar Haglund began an annual 4th of July fireworks display on Lake Union in 1980. You will be hard pressed to find a better place to experience the fireworks than on SeaZen Float!
The Argosy Christmas Ship Festival has been a beautiful holiday tradition since 1949. The parade of decorated boats light up the water of Lake Union with more than 65 registered boats.

About Sharon Morken
I was born and raised in the Seattle area. I always dreamed of living on the water, and was able to fulfill that dream in 2015 when I moved into a floating home. At that time I wasn't aware of the difference between a houseboat and a floating home. I since came to learn that a houseboat is tied to the dock, has a motoring means and has a hull as it is a boat. Houseboats are usually named just like other boats. A floating home is permanently attached to the dock, is supported by some means of floatation like logs or air filled barrels. They both provide an opportunity to feel the soothing rock of the the water. I retired from a 35 year nursing career and now am pursuing other business adventures. I have raised 4 children and am now blessed with 7 grandchildren. I am lucky to still have my Mom with me and thankful that she moved here from California before I was born. There is no place that I would rather call home. I do enjoy travel and the experience other places and cultures. I love being outdoors. When I am not out on the water playing, I love to golf, bike, ski, and hike. I absolutely love outdoor concerts in the summer with a picnic and bottle of wine! I have been practicing yoga since I was in college, but discovered aerial yoga a couple years ago and have been hooked ever since. My travels have taken me on a few yoga retreats, a couple of the highlights were one to India and the other was on a boat sailing the waters around Turkey and Greece.
Sharon Morken purchased this House Boat in 2017
Why Sharon Morken chose Eastlake and Portage Bay
This is a unique opportunity and I couldn't resist buying it and making it into a rental for others to enjoy. I have always believed in the VRBO and Airbnb concepts and thought that this would be a perfect fit for me and my lifestyle.
What makes this House Boat unique
I believe that this is the perfect place to stay and see what life is like on the water. I am confident that it will work no matter if you are touring the city or just wanting a place to relax. There are restaurants within walking distance, it close to public transportation and is close enough to the freeway if you are driving.

The SeaZen was more beautiful in person than it was in the pictures! The extra amenities they had were unbelievable! The scenery and tranquility of being on the lake was indescribable. We had such a wonderful time. We can’t thank you enough for giving us such an amazing stay! We will definitely be back for some more Zen on the SeaZen!
Our older children loved this houseboat. As nice as a downtown condo but feels nautical.
The owner is nice to share this home and it is so well equipped to enjoy the lake and views. Everything is labeled to make even a short trip easy (but it did take the second day for me to find hidden drawer in front of sink!). We would love to stay again!
It was all about relaxing as my wife had to have a surgical procedure on her back at Swedish. It did just that! It took her mind away from it and we really enjoyed our stay. Thanks, Larry & Lori
Thanks for choosing SeaZen Float for recovery and relaxation!
Wishing you speedy healing and good health!
Beautiful, functional and updated
Thank you Sharon for the warm welcome of treats and beverages! We also appreciated the early check-in accommodation.
The house boat is comfortable, functional and appointed with modern kitchen appliances and a beautiful full bathroom. We very much enjoyed our visit, despite Mother Nature not cooperating. We were rained in the entire stay but it was cozy (fireplace was lovely). The first couple of nights we crashed in the lower level bedrooms but with the rain, winds throwing everything around and banging, and noise of the heating fan constantly kicking on it was a bit of a racket. Surprisingly, the living room sectional was super comfortable; the upstairs was much more quiet than the downstairs :)
We hope to return to experience the home when the weather is nicer. Would love to enjoy the rooftop deck then!
Put simply, impeccable.
I’ve travelled most of the world and have rented homes and sailboats countless times, one of my greatest wishes to try out a houseboat in my own city of Seattle, and at 59 years of age it finally came true and what a pleasure it was!
SeaZen is far more than a houseboat, it’s almost like a spa with a chef’s kitchen on the water. Every conceivable effort was made in making this houseboat a highly functional, luxurious and restful getaway. Our arrival was amazing, with a lovely and thoughtful anniversary gift from our host Sharon, then things only got better from there. Tons of cool places to relax, a kitchen par-excellence, a 180 degree unobscured view of Lake Union and loads of useful and friendly technology designed for our complete pleasure. If you have ever dreamed of cooking, listening to fine music, feel the cool lake breeze and look out over the beautiful waters of Seattle, make a wise (brilliant) investment in your life’s pleasure and visit SeaZen!
Thank you so much for your kind words and especially for choosing to celebrate your anniversary aboard SeaZen Float!
Wishing you many more happy years together!
Wonderful experience on a well kept, with all amenities, houseboat. Owner was extremely responsive and even left us a beautiful basket with snacks and wine! The boat was spacious, comfortable and beautifully decorated. All in all excellent experience!
