All about Houseboats & Houseboating.

Has the idea of houseboats crossed your mind?

My wife and I love houseboats, and are living aboard one. We would like to share our experiences, tips and advice to help beginners, or experienced boaters.

Ever wonder what it's like to liveaboard, or to take a vacation holiday on a houseboat?

We created a website with many Houseboat topics that range from:

  • Plans to help Build your Own Houseboat
  • A simple Houseboat Manufacturers list.
  • Excellent Holiday Vacation Rental ideas.
  • Popular Houseboating World Wide areas.
  • A Directory full of info like Marinas....
  • A simple "For Sale guide" with valuable Tips.
  • If you like a Blogs-RSS, ours is a busy place.
  • As a bonus, get our free Magazine-Newsletter

If you're curious or eager, feel free to come see us at

The site is a great free resource for you, IAN.

Here is a great professional houseboat video below that gives you an excellent overview of Houseboats & Houseboating in North America.

"Julie's gotta a Crush on Houseboats."

      We had friends who had a great houseboat experience on Lake Shasta last summer. Only problem was, they can't who they rented from. This site solves that problem. Thanks!
