Any ideas who built these Trailerable Houseboats?
Any ideas as to who built these trailerable houseboats?
I am trying to figure out what kind of trailerable houseboat this is? I have very little information about it other than a picture. It was registered in 1979 and left to sit in the woods.
Basically I can describe it, and I hope someone has an idea who built these so that I can look up more information. It's powder blue, and it has a really big engine, and it says Mercruiser on the wheel house.
It's hull is one big fiberglass shell, and it looks more like a tub boat then anything.
Let me know if any old timers have a clue as to what houseboat manufacturer I would even search to find out more about these boats.
Thanks, Dr Jack Reply - Answer
Well Dr Jack, to help you get started, I would need to mention that "Mercruiser" is the type of engine that it has.
Possibly you could get the serial number from the engine and see if Mercruiser Mercury Marine dealer
can help you find which houseboat manufacturer bought these engines. It's possible that it was a replacement engine that was put in afterwards.
I'm not sure which brand or make, or who built these houseboats, but possibly the "past" houseboat manufacturers list
will help to narrow down some of the builders.
Lastly, hopefully some of our readers will know for sure, and they will share and post comments about which model of houseboat this is?
