Not for a Sylvanian family of 4+,

This review is from: Sylvanian Families Pleasure Boat Playset (Figures Not Included) (Toy)
My granddaughter got this a while back, and immediately found the problem that their is not enough space for everyone to sleep (a problem with most of the sf houses). She only owned 4 characters and the boat having only 2 beds (with no space for another) is a bit silly, in my opinion, seeing as you're probably going to have a family of 4+.
I would recommend (to people who want a home for 3 or more figurines) the canal boat, as it is cheaper, prettier and spacious. The same granddaughter has just ordered this:Sylvanian Families Waterside Canal Boat and finds it a HUGE improvement. She is mostly in awe of the fact it includes a toilet.
However, I would recommend the pleasure boat to children who want to house a couple of extra characters (bride and groom couple, grandparent couple, etc).
