Best 50 foot Houseboat to Buy?
A typical pontoon houseboat
We are looking to buy a 50 foot houseboat and aren't sure what style or model we should purchase. We are so confused and don't want to make a mistake. Reply - Answer
What are the pros and cons of a pontoon style houseboat? Should we get an aluminum or fiberglass houseboat?
What about floor construction, inboard, inboard/outboard or outboard engine, engine size, external wall and roof construction. The houseboat must have air conditioning.
The houseboat will be docked under roof most of the time on a major waterway in the U.S., and estimated water flow speed is probably between 3-5 miles/hour.
Thanks for any help.
