I have been living on and converting houseboats for decades, I founded and still run The Houseboat Centre, because people who wanted to buy and sell houseboats came to me for help, some from as far away as America, Australia and South Africa. Many of those from abroad were planning to live in the UK, but were horrified by the cost of housing here. Naturally I was able to help many of them find their affordable dream home afloat.

Many of those who contacted me were Houseboat owners who asked me to help them sell their boats. What started as a passion and helping others ~in the same boat~ became a fulltime occupation and gave me even more contact with many more houseboats, boat owners and always, of course, in-depth question and answer sessions about their houseboats, their original good ideas, the problems they met and how they overcame them.

Most importantly, The Houseboat Book offers guidance for the future. . which means you can make a truly informed decision about buying your houseboat.

Even if it means you decide that it is not for you, you will know that your decision is based on good information.,

My goal in writing this book is to get the real message out about houseboats. To that effect, I want to make sure you are armed with as much information as possible.

To ensure your satisfaction and your comfort when ordering your book, I am willing to offer you a no-riskopportunity to enjoy The Houseboat Book… and then some!

While I hate to force you to commit to anything you are uncomfortable about, I do insist you commit to your making well informed decisions. Choosing and buying a houseboat` can be challenging, but the more information and education you have, the better able you will be to choose and learn to how to adapt to your new life.
