No one said a condo with access to a dock. I'm suggesting that since a houseboat is just a floating house, why not cut out the floating part and just get the house (or apartment) and save a lot of money in the process?
It isn't as if MOST houseboats EVER move, except from one long-term slip to another. Certainly not on Florida's Gold Coast, where the only place to cruise is up and down the ICW or the drainage canals.
Houseboat, slip, maintenance...all expenses. Florida real estate of any kind? Including condos? Is at record lows, which makes it a prime investment, when the purpose is to live someplace--not to go boating.
