In the resort town of Cape May, New Jersey, you will find this odd but adorable little structure by the waters edge.

Built in 1910 to look like a tugboat, this 788 square foot dwelling is currently for sale.

Fun fact: tug boats have actually been around since 1810.

The 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom boat-home is listed for a whopping $695,000!

The price tag has more to do with its waterfront location rather than the actual structure.

The listing agent describes it as: “prime location for developer“.

Sure it’s just an old tugboat, but it would be a crying shame to raze this quirky, historic place to replace it with a McMansion!

Let’s have a look at the charming interior…
