Are houseboats good for ocean travel?

Are houseboats good for ocean travel?

I would like to use a houseboat for European or South American travel? Can anyone tell me about an ocean journey they (or just their houseboat being towed) have made from the states to any long distance locations?

I am interested in crossing points, planning strategies, difficulties faced, size of houseboat used, etc.

Thanks, Janice

Hi Janice, welcome to the houseboat forums.

Now for some bad news, houseboats were never designed for ocean travel as they were designed for lakes, rivers, and protected waterways.

Lastly, hopefully some of our readers and visitors will share and post comments about their related ocean travel / houseboat experiences and tips.

Feel free to use the "Click here to post comments." link found near the bottom of this page.

Thanks again for sharing, IAN from all-about-houseboats
