Default Help: I need 10 houseboats!

I'm looking for a Exporter / Manufacturer of houseboats of the type seen on the lakes (Havasu etc) - They must be less than 55' long (the nearer the better), and be very upmarket with built in jacuzzis, plasma TV etc although they will need to be 240 volt rather than 110 volt.

No engine is required as they will be moored in the same place all summer.

This is a serious enquiry to replace some existing boats, feel free to reply on here or by email to: [email protected].

I assume this doesn't break any forum rules, but if it does then please delete this message,

Edit: Forgot to mention 8 - 10 berths required!

Thanks

Almost all of the manufactures are in Monticello ky. They ship worldwide. They produce not only luxury houseboats but also the majority of the rental fleet. If you'd like I can find the names and numbers for several. Let me know if I can help.

That would be great if you could Kent - this to replace an existing rental fleet so they sound perfect - any details would be good,

There is a company about 30 miles from me that build some really awesome houseboats. I drive through their yard often just to see what they are building. Here is the web site. skipperliner

Actually no - we have the occasional storm but rarely over a force 8-9, and the place where these boats are moored is very well protected!

They are replacing some old and well used boats that were bought with the company and need updating.

I should make it clear I am just collecting information for a company I do business with - what happens afterwards is up to them!

Thank you for the leads everyone - they have sent me in the right direction so far - if anyone has any more information that would be gratefully recieved!
