The 60 foot Hilburn houseboat

The 60 foot Hilburn houseboat

I currently live in a 48 foot Hilburn Coastal Cruiser which I am going to sell. I recently re-purchased a 60 foot Hilburn with a planning hull. I want to totally rebuild the boat with a $100,000 budget.

I was looking a $100k as follows: (25K for hull, 25K for Kitchen, 25K for overhauling engines, and 25K for wall and ceiling repair and replacement. I am looking for help in doing this.

The boat is in New Orleans and I plan to haul it out in about 2 weeks. I would be willing to allow help to live aboard the 48 foot Hilburn. It is in great shape.

Thanks, Tom from New Orleans.

Hi Tom, congratulations on purchasing a 60ft Hilburn houseboat. I am sure that once finished, it will be a great liveaboard boat with lots of living space.

I also presume with a budget of your size, the boat will have plenty of great amenities and will be "a boat of your dreams".

Lastly, hopefully some of our readers and visitors will share and post comments about their HOUSEBOAT REMODELING experiences and tips.

Thanks again for sharing, IAN from All About Houseboats

PS: I just hope that people read the Houseboat BUYING Guide before going out and buying a boat.
