Houseboat trailer plans, or measurements.

A typical style big boat / houseboat trailer
I have just bought a 50' Sunseeker made by Three Buoys. I'm looking for plans if anybody has any, or pics for a trailer.
This boat has a full hull and is 50' long by 14' wide, and weighs 30,000 LBS. The trailer is just to get it out of the water to park it for the winter. It's not going to be going on any highways.
Or if there is any specs for the design of the hull, as the boat is 3000 km away so I can't just go and get measurements.
Please help if you can, thank you.

Hi Jodi, thanks for posting in the houseboat forums.
I wish I could personally give you the help or measurements that you need, but I don't ever recall seeing a Three Buoys Sunseeker houseboat out of the water (especially one with a full hull).
I may be mistaken, I always remember seeing them with pontoon/tritoon hulls.
You could however use basically any big boat transport who has a hydraulic boat trailer, as they could pull the boat out of the water and place it on blocks for you.
From there you could decide if it's worth to "get/rent" or "build yourself" a trailer just to haul it out.Lastly
, hopefully some of our readers and visitors will share and post comments about their related Three Buoys houseboat / trailer experiences and tips.
