Looking for a manufacturer who will build a custom houseboat for me and who can handle such a project.


I am starting a business for dinner cruises on a houseboat for hire. I need to have it built by Coast Guard regulations. I need to know who to contact, any suggestions?

Well Mary, congratulations on your plans to have a custom built houseboat and run a dinner cruise business.

If I was to make a recommendation I would suggest that you go with an aluminum houseboat, since cost and maintenance would be important factors for your project.

If I was to make a recommendation on houseboat manufacturers, I have two manufacturers that are leaders in the industry and are easy to work with.

Factory-Direct Pricing & Quotes

When it comes to recommending who can handle such a project and quote pricing, you can get some factory-direct pricing and some personal service with them.

Pontoon Style or Full Hull Style?

I would start here for a custom-built pontoon style boat, and here for a custom-built full hull style boat.


Lastly, hopefully some of our readers and visitors will share and post comments about their custom-built houseboat experiences and tips.

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