Build Your Own Houseboat Plans 21′ DIY Pontoon House Boat Building Plan
These houseboat plans will show you how to build a 21′ X 7′ 3″ houseboat. This is the 3rd houseboat I have made and it is by far the most economical.
This Houseboat is a unique water craft in that it combines most of the comforts of home with the mobility of a boat. Of course, use is limited to sheltered waters, and speeds are slow in comparison to more sea-worthy vessels.
This is a 21-footer that provides plenty of living space for three or four persons. An extremely simple houseboat to build, it features a strong hull with a heavy keel and close-spaced framing, This, coupled with a relatively low profile,makes it a very stable craft.
Features include a conning room designed to provide an unobstructed view forward and to the sides through glare-proof, swing-away windows. The settee behind the helm extends to make a full length berth, and in the main cabin, steps at the
companionway can be removed to make way for a fold-away berth. Of course, the entire interior arrangement can be worked out to best suit your individual needs. Shown is an arrangement where a section of the after deck is left open to provide a patio effect on the starboard side, while the galley is to port.
I will email you a PDF to the email address you provided to PayPal so you can print them out any size. If you wish hard copies on 8 1/2 X 11 paper mailed to you as well, please indicate this when you purchase.
