Is a Marinette houseboat still built, and full aluminum house boats?
Are Marinette houseboats built fully out of aluminum?
We want to buy a Marinette houseboat, and wondering if the Marinettes are a full aluminum house boats, including the superstructure? Reply - Answer
I can't seem to find out if they are still being built somewhere?
I know there are many of these older aluminum hulled boats that have a fiberglass upper cabin, roof, and decks.
Now just to find one at a good price, that doesn't need too much work.
Many thanks, Kyle
Well Kyle, welcome to the houseboat forums, and congratulations on your decision to buy a Marinette.
There was a point, where my wife and I were also going to buy a Marinette, and like you, found it difficult to find one at a reasonable price without needing too much work.
If you get one, you should be very pleased, as they are a lightweight, well built, fast planing, full sized houseboat.
They remind me of the Holiday Mansion, Chris Craft, Hilburn, Harbor Master, and the many Gibson houseboat models out there, except with an excellent full aluminum hull and superstructure.Lastly
