Looks like the boat used in the original series opening credits can be yours for a mere $99,000 CDN.

Buy the SS Minnow

Here's a link to the actual listing (for all you potential buyers):
Buy the Minnow

I guess you could recoup the cost by taking people on 3hr tours.

Too Funny! I had lunch with some of my sailing friends today, and one of the gals had dreamed that we started a cruise line here in Hawaii, sailing out of Hickam Harbor, right by Pearl Harbor... She said it was so real that she woke up and her husband asked her what was the problem and she told him: "You won't believe what Wendy has got us into!" before she realized it was a dream. Her dream was pretty funny, with our first customers being Sarah Jessica Parker and family. And we were taking them sailing in 14' Holders! She said it was like in the Wizard of OZ, we all had parts in her dream. And Jenn was there and Jane was there and Ben was there and Wendy, even you were there!

So I said that, well... we could buy the SS Minnow, ship it here and start a "3 Hour Tour" cruise. It pays to read Tiki Central every morning.

I guess the original three-hour-tour gang never intended to sleep on board, as - according to the listing - it only sleeps five!

When I was a kid, I always dreamed of living on Gilligans Island. Aside from the occassional savages and bad guys arriving on the island, it looked like a cool place to live.

It still seems like it would be great to live on an unpopulated island. Ohhhh, I WANNA LIVE ON GILLIGAN's ISLAND. The ship is a by product of the experience.
