The Gibson 5900 is a wide body houseboat giving the interior and exterior massive volume.  The side decks, aft deck and upper deck will handle a crowd while the interior spaces are as large as most homes!   Original owner, the 5900 will please the most discriminating buyers.



The interior is a three stateroom, two head layout with beautiful cherry woodwork, matching fabrics, fabric blinds, stainless steel appliances and excellent natural light and ventilation.
