River Ranch Houseboats are in the water

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash;--It's the newest way to enjoy the summer sun here in the Tri-Cities.

River Ranch houseboats, out of Burbank, finally launched their newest attractions into the water, and just in time for summer.

You can now rent these 60 foot boats equipped with flat screen TV's, barbecues and even a water slide.

This is something completely new and different for the Tri-Cities, but owner Ben Harris already has big ideas on how his boats can be used.

"Wine tasting cruise, go up for a three to seven day vacation, or if they want a little cabin on the water to go salmon fish or duck hunt. We really are multi-dimensional."

Harris says he is already receiving lots of interest in his new business. His fleet of three boats are already completely booked for Water Follies weekend.

For information on how to rent one of these boats for yourself, check out their website at www.riverranchboats.com
