Shorepower is standard 30 amp marine-type shorepower connection and cable.
There are no engines installed. If it is desired to move the houseboat under her own power then two outboards, sized depending upon desired speed and distance would be installed in the existing engine wells. A couple of relatively inexpensive used outboards would do the trick.

The Urban 5 is designed to be capable of meeting a reasonable definition of "boat" to comply with live-aboard and vessel moorage laws. Check your local regulations however! With the addition of twin outboards and associated controls the houseboat could be operated quite effectively. It has navigational lights, a suitable helm station area, a pontoon hull (with engine mounting wells) that is designed as a real boat hull, and marvelous fore and aft decks.

Board astern from the large aft deck which has plenty of sitting space plus storage enough for kayaks or paddleboards.
The main deck interior includes a well-lit office-like desk and storage area aft and a storage closet and a pantry aft port. The linear gourmet galley with granite countertop extends forward starboard and includes the following stainless steel appliances:
- Fisher & Paykel propane range
- Maytag convection microwave
- GE refrigerator/freezer
The roomy head port midships is nicely appointed and includes a large enclosed shower stall.
The saloon is framed by lots of windows and is roomy enough to accommodate a variety of buyer-supplied freestanding furniture. Bamboo paneling, cork ceiling tiles and simple but attractive joinery make this a very appealing living space. And you can't beat the view. Access to the foredeck is through a centerline door.
The top deck is reached by a ladder/stair to the master stateroom. A door aft provides access to more spacious deck area, and wide side decks on each side lead to yet another beautiful deck.
With a fold-out sofa or futon in the saloon this boat could accommodate guests -- and lots more guests if sleeping under the stars is ok!
Cabin heat is from an installed electric fireplace and portable electric heaters. A furnace could be installed (or air conditioning if desired). Good insulation in the walls and floors mean low heating requirements. Stainless steel hot water heater.
4 burner gas cooker
