Blog by Jeff Fitzpatrick | October 28th, 2011

Looking for a truly unique west coast home with some of Vancouver’s best water, mountain and sunset views? If you’re open to a slightly different, yet equally amazing lifestyle, a float home may be just for you! Currently two of the six Coal Harbour homes (the maximum number of float homes allowed in this marina) are on the market! Check out these rare gems below – they may very well float your boat!
