Houseboats are almost always equipped with engines allowing you to slip the dock lines and escape to your favorite cove or head down river and explore new places. Houseboats range in size from the upper twenty foot range to over 100 feet in length. The larger houseboats will have inboard gasoline or diesel engines, the mid range houseboats can have inboard or inboard/outboard engines and the smallest houseboats typically have a single Outboard motor.
Most houseboats are designed so that the top of the houseboat serves as an observation/sun deck and the larger houseboats can be driven from the this deck area. The larger houseboats will have outdoor galleys with a grill, refrigerator, ice maker and a bar for entertaining. Many houseboats will have a water slide for children young and old alike to enjoy.
Houseboats with no engines are just like the word sounds, a floating home always secured to the dock. Many areas around the United States have floating home communities, these non-motorized houseboats can offer economical living and beautiful scenic views for a weekend or full time residence.
Houseboats will provide you with all the comforts of home you are use to such as full size refrigerators, cooktop with oven, microwave and other Galley items that make you feel like you are at home. Smaller houseboats may have a hybrid room that serves as a Salon area which converts into sleeping quarters. Larger houseboats will have a dedicated Salon area inside for lounging and entertaining plus an outdoor area at the Bow for the same purpose. Larger Houseboats can accommodate in the area of 10-12 overnight guests and most will have 3 or more private cabins.
