All our houseboats are equipped
with a single 3.0 liter (4 cylinder) inboard/outboard engine.
You can expect to burn three to four gallons of fuel per running
hour. This equates to around 100 gallons of fuel for a week-long
cruise. Comparatively, you'll use 8-12 gallons per hour per engine
on houseboats with 2- cycle outboards. The single 3.0 liter engine
saves as much as 75% on your fuel bill as compared to the two
2- cycle outboards.
We use Onan 7.0 kW generators that burn only 3/4th of a gallon
per running hour. On average the generator is operated about 25
hours per week, consuming only 18-20 gallons of fuel for the entire
Lake Roosevelt Vacations
has eliminated all 2-cycle outboards from its small craft fleet,
thereby doing its part in eliminating one of the most environmentally
unfriendly engines in the country.
We collect all "black"
and "gray" water from the bathrooms and galley to prevent
any contaminated water from being drained into Lake Roosevelt.
We do our part in keeping
Lake Roosevelt's environment user-friendly by recycling all used
oil, solid waste, and other potential hazardous materials.
Lake Roosevelt is a very clean water resource, and we do all
we can to support and maintain this aquatic reserve.
Lake Roosevelt Vacations, Inc. is an authorized concessionaire of the National Park Service. We are a closely held private Washington corporation and are not affiliated with any other entity on Lake Roosevelt.
