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

How are you to decide which is the best suited "make or model" when it comes to choosing a manufacturer.
There are Trailerable, Pontoon, Barge, Full Hull, Catamaran, Displacement, and Planning Hull types available.
As you may already be aware, each of the different hull materials has it's own "pros/cons" that you should seriously evaluate.
