Where to find used houseboats for sale in California?

Starting to look for any houseboats for sale in California? I am in the market for a houseboat, but I want to moor it in South California.

Do you have any connections there, or information for me where, and how I can moor it?

Thanks! Nina.

Houseboat in South California
by: Anonymous

Well, you know Santa Barb is an ocean harbor and you can't take a houseboat out in the ocean, unless you plan to swim back.

I have houseboat number 5, a 47' Harbormaster. I live aboard, in North California on the "delta" near Stockton. There are 1100 miles of waterways up here, in case you want to go boating some time.

I am from South California and I'm surprised SB has live aboard slips. I bet the is a long waiting list. Anyway, good luck to you.

If you come to the Delta, there are a hundred or more marinas, from Sacramento to the SF bay.

I have an elderly friend who owns a Nautaline 43' houseboat in very good shape. Twin GM engines (?motors), she has the pink slip, and is very anxious to sell it.

The boat is currently dry-docked in Ventura Harbor Marina. Please email me if you have any interest or need more information, with photos.

All the best, Jeannie Collins

Well Jeannie, your best bet to sell the boat is to place an ad on our free houseboat for sale classifieds.

Just to clarify...

I am running a sort of a business now, and I need to establish a different address in California than the one that I currently have -which is my parents' home. They don't talk to me anymore, so getting material and so on is difficult when the communication is not reciprocated.

I want to buy an eco-friendly floating boat in SB because my cousin lives there and can take care of it for me. I will stay there when I come for holidays and so on with my son.

That way, I will impose on no one when I now start coming back to my America/California because that Obama will soon be in office, I am happy to be American again.

Houseboat moorage in Santa Barbara, CA
by: Nina Modi Du Rietz

I did some research on houseboat mooring in California, and found out that I can moor the houseboat in Santa Barbara, I think.

This is their web page, it is quite...cryptic, to say the least:

Does this mean that:

A 40ft boat (1 bedroom) will cost about 333$/month

53ft boat: 477/month

Living aboard addition is: 140/month??

Not that bad, I think! Much better than buying something on land and having to pay the mortgage on that, you know?

Now, I just have to go about getting a slip. Anyone? Any ideas?

PS: I already know which boat I want to get.
