HOUSEBOATS
BEGINNERS GUIDE
What is it? A houseboat is not a
standard watercraft or
bigger private yacht
Houseboats are made
mainly for residences on
the water, instead of as
a transport watercraft
Houseboats can have
different propulsion
systems depending on
their dimensions
Types of
Houseboats
The three major houseboat manufacturers –
Thoroughbred, Stardust and Sumerset – are all
located in Monticello, KY
Slip rental fees include freshwater connections
and other utilities such as shore power, pumps,
cables, garbage collection and more
These fees vary, but a good example is that a
24-foot by 90-foot slip at Safe Harbor Beaver
Creek Marina in Monticello costs about $8,300
a year, and they are preferably paid in advance
Houseboat
Rentals
Hired Boat Ownership: The ownership of rented
boats is one of the most frequently used properties
and is used by many people around the world
In low season you should expect that the prices
are only half as high
During high season you can expect to pay only
$2k to $15k for a luxury boat, which can
accommodate up to 12 people
Pre-Owned
Houseboats
You can find pre-owned
houseboats on the internet
valued anywhere from
$15,000 to $1.5 million
There are people who do not
have enough money to buy a
houseboat
Houseboats vary in dimension
from 20-some feet to
approximately 90-plus feet, so
it’s difficult to give a typical cost
of a brand-new houseboat
Financing A
Houseboat
The boat-alert.com database will search
multiple databases for hidden problems
in the boat history
Ship insurance policies cover
houseboats, but costs vary so you need
to check
In the United States, you will have to pay
taxes on the purchase of the houseboat
This will vary depending on the type of
boat, whether your boat is motorized or
not, and the State you are in
Houseboat
Ownership
There are many houseboat communities across
the country, including Lake Cumberland in
Kentucky, Lake Powell in Arizona and Lake
Travis in Texas
Houseboating is a particular lifestyle that
revolves around the community, and most
houseboaters dock in a single place
If you use your houseboat only part of the time,
you need to find a boat storage facility to keep
your boat safe when it is not in use, or you can
build a permanent berth for your houseboat
What is it like
living Aboard A
Houseboat
Maintenance: A boat requires more
maintenance than a house, including
mechanical and all kinds of maintenance
It’s essential to keep in mind that not all
marinas enable liveaboards on houseboats, so
before you choose to live entirely on a
houseboat, it is smart to first find a location to
place it
If you chose to park your houseboat in a
freshwater environment that can be subject to
freezing weather you will have to buy de-icing
bubblers that do not allow water to ice up
around the hull of our watercraft
Popular places for houseboats in the United
States
Sausalito, Calif
Union Lake,
Seattle
Tomahawk
Island, Portland
Austin, Texas
San Diego, Calif
Lake of the
Ozarks, Mo
Chickamauga
Lake,
Chattanooga,
Tenn
Lake
Cumberland, KY
Driving A
Houseboat
Driving a houseboat is like driving a car, but with a
few important differences
Houseboats are generally the largest vessels to be
built, and most of their emphasis is on comfort,
equipment and habitat, rather than its efficiency as
a boat
While the typical boat is a large yacht, a
houseboat is designed to be both a home on the
water and a means of transport
A Final Note
Houseboats are an attractive
idea for boaters who dream
of living on the water
The party crowd tends to use
pontoon boats, anglers
prefer bass boats with center
consoles, and when pure,
unadulterated relaxation is
the goal, a houseboat is the
ultimate choice
Many boaters realize that
houseboats have more to
offer and much more to do
