Great Outdoor Cottages Successfully Tests Bungalow Boat Prototype
New floating "houseboat" product line launches this summer.

Chincoteague Island, VA (April 6, 2023) -- Great Outdoor Cottages, a construction team of developers and adventurers that designs high quality cabins, cottages, and park models, is proud to announce its successful splash test of its first ever Bungalow Boat unit. This “houseboat" project has been in development for months and is now ready to move into production.

These luxurious floating boat units are made for a true glamping experience on the water and offer a full kitchen, bathroom, queen-sized bed, and a screened porch with comfortable seating to relax and enjoy the breathtaking sunsets.

Great Outdoor Cottages has been developing the prototype unit for months and officially tested it on March 25th at BluFin Bungalows & Marina in Chincoteague Island. With the help of Roamers Marine, Beauchamp Construction, and the Blue Water Construction team, the splash test successfully showcased the Bungalow Boat unit, marking a pivotal moment for the future of Great Outdoor Cottages.

“Launching this first unit showed us that our team can achieve the impossible,” said Billy Scheid, Director of Sales at Great Outdoor Cottages, “We now know, we are able to fulfill the high standards and goals that we set for ourselves.”

The bungalow boat units are currently in production, and will be shipped, assembled, and made available to the public in conjunction with BluFin Bungalows & Marina’s opening this summer.

“We are excited to take our products from land to sea and are thrilled to see where this new development leads our company,” said John Longino, Chief Financial Officer at Great Outdoor Cottages.

Great Outdoor Cottages is a sister company of Blue Water, which owns and operates BluFin Bungalows & Marina.
