Houseboats For Sale - buying a houseboat from USA and Canada

When it comes to looking at houseboats for sale, is a US citizen capable of buying a houseboat in Canada?

What I mean is, can a US citizen buy a houseboat and keep it on a Canadian Lake, and how long can I stay in BC each year. I have family living in BC so my tentative plan is to be near them for the summers if possible.

If you are unable to answer these questions would you be able to direct me to someone who can. I thank you for your time, and I am sorry if this causes any inconvenience.

Sincerely, Sue.

Well Sue, you can buy a houseboat in Canada, however there are a few requirements that need to be met. How long you can stay depends on the lake that is of interest.

If you want a definitive answer to your questions, I would recommend going directly to some popular houseboat manufacturers in BC.

By speaking to their houseboat sales departments, they should be able to give you the answers to your questions.

Lastly, hopefully some of our readers will share and post comments about their USA and Canada cross border, buying a houseboat for sale experiences. Feel free to use the "Click here to post comments." link found near the bottom of this page.

Why don't you consider a floating home? I could build it here in the U.S. and have it delivered to British Columbia by Dreams In Motion Worldwide Houseboat Transporters.

As a matter of fact they are leaving Kentucky today delivering a houseboat to the very area your map shows!
