So your company has burned out on the usual corporate-retreat venues? On the last ropes course, somebody tried to string up the comptroller? Maybe it’s time for a different kind of outing. Enter Forever Houseboats, which rents “floating conference rooms” on lakes in California, Nevada, Texas, and Missouri. Six models are available. If it’s been a really good year, rent the 70-foot Millennium with 4 private bedrooms, a wet bar, and a 6-person hot tub on the top deck for those sunset strategy sessions. Forever staffers will even go shopping and provision the boat before you arrive.

For rates and reservations, call (800) 255-5561 or log on to the web at www.­for­ever­­houseboats.­com.
