Is a Hilburn houseboat good house boats to buy?
Thinking of buying a Hilburn houseboat for sale, and wondering if they are good house boats to buy for inland and coastal cruising? Reply - Answer
We would be traveling around the ICW and short hops out on the open water.
We have seen them with V8's and also diesel engines, any ideas as to which are best?
Thanks for any help. Mike.
Well Mike, welcome to the houseboat forums, and congratulations on your decision to buy a Hilburn house boat.
Now if the boat passes the marine survey, and the price is right, than you can't go wrong with using a Hilburn for inland and short coastal cruising.
They were well made houseboats, and with solid construction. If you can get one with diesels, that would be my choice, but again, have a mechanic look at the engines and the drives, just to verify their condition first.Lastly
