Lake Norman Waterfront Homes: What kind of boat is this???

Real Estate Broker/Owner with LKN Realty, LLC 242267

Helicoper on Lake Norman


On our way to Cornelius one day in our trusty pontoon boat I happened to notice this peculiar looking boat!  Because Lake Norman is so large we have myriad types and sizes of boats from modest fishing dingys to jet skiis to Cigarette boats. 

Tony Stewart's Lake Norman Party boat



Lake Norman is even home to a few mega-party boats like this one owned by NASCAR race driver Tony Stewart:






Marina at The Peninsula Club on Lake Norman




At the Peninsula Yacht Club one can find a great example of the variety of boats on Lake Norman.





While I knew that there are helipads around Lake Norman and, of course, two airports, I still was quite amazed to see the helicopter above sitting on it's own little dock right on the water.

I can't wait for next summer!

Lake Norman is such a beautiful lake.  I drove past there a few times in the last month or so.

Diane, now that helicopter shot is a very strange one. Someone's private landing pad.

Diane - that IS a strange shot, but perhaps in this day and age not so surprising. Guess I woupod expect it at someone's house, not on the lake.

Diane, Lake Norman is gorgeous!  I love that helicopter, it must belong to someone who can afford to get away at a moment's notice :)

I bet you take buyers out on your boat to give them the tour! It sure looks like a very pretty lake.
