Houseboats are larger size vessels frequently used for time-honored pursuits such as living aboard. The average length of these boats is 57 feet, while they can vary in size from 16 feet to 131 feet. They are constructed by a wide variety of yacht builders and their hull types include displacement, planing, flat, modified vee and other designs.
