Living on a houseboat - Hudson - Northern New Jersey

I'm interested in houseboat living, especially the Hudson River in northern New Jersey.

Is there anyone who can help me find a marina that allows year round living aboard a houseboat on the Hudson in northern New Jersey? The Manhattan skyline would be ideal.

Thanks Carmine.

Well Carmine, congratulations on your decision to live on a houseboat. I don't know if you have any previous boating or live-aboard experience, so I may suggest having a look at our tips on houseboat living page.

As to finding a liveaboard houseboat marina on the Hudson NJ, you could look at our houseboat marina page to get some names and contact info.

If you prefer, sometimes it's better to simply drive through the areas that you would like to live in, and personally visit the marinas along the way to get a realistic view of the place and people.

Lastly, hopefully some of our readers will share and post comments about locations, and their houseboat living experiences. Feel free to use the "Click here to post comments." link found at the bottom of this page.

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

Friends of ours kept a 35' sailboat there. Jaw dropping views of NYC opposite the WTC. It is 'stay aboard' you can sleep aboard but must leave the boat once a day. There are land side toilets and showers, so less pumping out fees.

I can't say anything about New Jersey, but if you don't mind going a little further north, I do know that Haverstraw Marina in Haverstraw, NY, just north of the Tappanzee Bridge will take live-aboards. It's really a nice place and area to live.
