Is a houseboat suitable to travel the ocean?
Is a houseboat good for ocean travel?
I'm wondering if houseboats are designed, or if there are any designed, to travel the oceans and go from country to country? Also, are there any houseboats that have sails if you did not want to use gasoline often?
Any help would be appreciated, Thanks. Reply - Answer
Well Matt, unfortunately houseboats are not designed to travel the oceans. They were designed mostly for lakes, rivers, and intercoastal waters.
The construction and freeboard are not made to take on rough pounding seas, so if ocean travel is on your agenda, another vessel choice would be in order.
If you are looking for a boat with "sails" as to take advantage of the wind, possibly a motorsailer would be a better choice.Lastly
