A typical Boatel Houseboat

We have just finished remodeling a 1974 Boatel Houseboat. It is like a battle ship. Much better construction then the new models. I still need some information on my houseboat.

If any of you have any information please let me know. Mine is for sale right now in Florida. It comes with a covered slip, I'm asking 50,000.

Any information would be appreciated. The layout of our houseboat is so user friendly, there is so much storage and a lot of detail.

Thanks, Sara

Hi sara, welcome to the houseboat forums.

It's true, the materials used in older houseboats were definitely made better. Mind you, some of the newer construction materials are also top-notch and last just as long.

Lastly, hopefully some of our readers and visitors will share and post comments about their related older houseboat experiences and tips.

Feel free to use the "Click here to post comments." link found near the bottom of this page.

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

Hi, I own an old Boatel 33 ft houseboat. Want to do some restoration/ redesign of interior. I’m looking for specs on how the pontoon houseboats were originally constructed. Ideas?? Thanks!

We have one been doing some extensive work as it has been neglected. Some wax cleaning and a new swim platform. We will be pulling an engine this winter.

Cruise the Ohio River. Moved up from a 30 foot Carver cruiser. The room is unbelievable. 2 full bath, kitchen etc... have me spoiled.

I've just bought a 1974 Boatel houseboat and intend to retire on it on the Mississippi River. I would be most interested in sharing info on Boatel boats. If you meet other owners you can contact me.

Thanks, Mike Hayden
