How to research and decide which
houseboat manufacturer is for you!
Part-2 of Houseboat Manufacturer,
here is Part-1.
After having owned, had rides on, and been on hundreds of houseboats,
I can honestly tell you that each one had its own charm, style, and specific beauty.
After 30 years of boating, and as I've always said, there's no such thing as a
"perfect houseboat", only the "perfect houseboat" for you!
You have many builders to choose from, but with a little research, you'll better understand which
house boat manufacturer best suits your needs!

There's so many Models and Makes?
How are you to decide which is the best suited "make or model" when it comes to choosing a manufacturer.
There are Trailerable
, Barge, Full Hull, Catamaran
, Displacement, and Planning Hull types available.

Get Aluminum, Fiberglass, Steel, or Wood?
As you may already be aware, each of the different hull materials has it's own "pros/cons" that you should seriously evaluate.
You want to look at the various issues of each such as maintenance, repair,
strength, weight, and appearance.
To read more about each of the hull materials, and understand the benefits, you should have a
look at our Hull Construction page
What's better, a New or Used one?
Deciding whether it's better to get a NEW or USED one is a difficult question to answer.
You're needs and wants are not identical as to the next person, so I would recommend you
