What is a houseboat?

A houseboat is a floating home designed to provide a unique living experience on the water. It typically includes all the amenities of a traditional home, including a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and living space.

Where are the GoFriday houseboats made?

Are GoFriday houseboats eco-friendly?

Yes, our houseboats are an eco-friendly living option. Our houseboats are designed to minimize their environmental impact and maximize their sustainability. We use solar panels, rainwater harvesting, and energy-efficient appliances to reduce our carbon footprint.

Can the houseboat be used on the sea?

No, the houseboat is designed to work on calm waters such as rivers or lakes. It is not suitable for use on the open sea where the conditions can be much more challenging and potentially dangerous. The design and construction of the houseboat are optimized for stability and comfort on still waters, so it is important to use it accordingly and avoid exposing it to conditions for which it was not designed.

Where can I find a place to put my houseboat?

There is a variety of options for places to moor or dock a houseboat, depending on your location and preferences. You can look into marinas, which offer amenities like water and electricity hookups and usually have staff available to assist with docking. Alternatively, you could consider anchoring your houseboat in a sheltered cove or inlet, or finding a private dock or mooring to rent. It's important to research local regulations and obtain any necessary permits before settling in a location, to ensure that you are complying with local laws and protecting the environment.

Is a boating license required to operate a houseboat?

Yes, in most cases, a boating license is required to operate a houseboat. The specific license requirements may vary depending on your location and the size and type of houseboat you are operating. We recommend checking with your local boating authority to determine the specific requirements in your area. It is important to ensure that all operators of the houseboat are properly licensed and trained to ensure the safety of all passengers and other boaters on the water.

Do I need any boating experience to buy a houseboat?

It is recommended that buyers have some boating experience before purchasing a houseboat. The safety and proper handling of the houseboat are important for both personal enjoyment and the safety of others on the water.

Is there a maximum capacity for the houseboats?

Yes, the maximum capacity for our houseboats is usually 13 people, depending on the size of the boat. Please check the product page on our website for more information.
