YATESVILLE -- As warmer weather quickly approaches, a new houseboat was added to the Houseboat Row at the Yatesville Lake State Park Marina.  One of the current customers upgraded to this new boat 'One Particular Harbor' and was launched even with a thin layer of ice on the water.  This 18’ x 88” boat features 3 bedrooms, satellite TVs, hot tub and all the comforts of home. Nothing like “roughing it” on a day at the lake.
