Before embarking on any boat construction, you’ll want to invest in a reputable builder. Check to ensure your houseboat manufacturer is licensed and registered. You’ll also want to ask your builder for a portfolio of past projects and inquire about their history. A houseboat is a big project, so you’re looking for a company with a lot of experience building custom designed vessels.
One of the most essential things to consider when building a boat is safety. You can have the most beautiful yacht on the planet, but no one will appreciate it if they don’t feel safe. Talk to your builder about some of the most important safety concerns, like:
• Lightning protection
• Copper pipes
• Propane and carbon monoxide detectors
• Smoke and fire detectors
• Coast Guard approved navigational lighting and flood lights
• Fuel tank grounding
• Auto bilge pumps
• Modern radios with emergency hailers
• GPS navigational systems
There’s no fun in building a boat from the bottom up if you don’t have the freedom to design it just the way you want it. Companies like Bravada let you custom design the floor plan and elevation of your houseboat to fit your exact needs and expectations. Contact Bravada (http://www.bravadayachts.com/
