How much does it cost to rent a houseboat?

The cost to rent a houseboat can vary considerably based on multiple factors. The size of the boat is one of the most significant determinants, as larger houseboats typically offer more amenities and space. Other critical price influencers include the number of guests, the location of your trip, and the type of houseboat you choose.

You can expect to pay between $110 and $1,100 per day or $1,350 to $2,600 per week for a houseboat charter. Luxury houseboats can be more expensive, with rates exceeding $4,700 per day. But these prices will change greatly due to the location and season.

What are the different types of houseboats?

A houseboat generally means a boat that has been built or converted to be lived in. There are many types of houseboats - from small, motorized houseboats to large houseboats that do not have a motor.

  • Traditional Houseboats - Traditional houseboats are often made of wood and are designed to look like traditional boats. They are typically smaller and more intimate, making them a great choice for couples or small families.
  • Barge Houseboats - Barge houseboats are typically larger and more spacious than other types of houseboats. They are ideal for groups of people or families with children. They often come equipped with multiple bedrooms, bathrooms, and other amenities.
  • Catamaran Houseboats - Catamaran houseboats are designed with two hulls and are typically more stable than other types of houseboats. They are great for cruising on rougher waters and offer a smooth and comfortable ride.
  • Luxury Houseboats - Luxury houseboats are designed for those who want to enjoy the ultimate comfort and luxury. They often come equipped with high-end amenities such as hot tubs, gourmet kitchens, and private balconies.
  • Canal Boats - Canal boats are designed specifically for navigating narrow waterways and canals. They are typically smaller and easier to handle than other types of houseboats. These are ideal for exploring the smaller waterways of Europe.

Why should I rent a houseboat with a captain?

If you have chosen a houseboat that is motorized or requires a license, it is possible to rent with a captain. A professional captain can help you navigate the waterways and give you expert tips and local recommendations.

A professional captain can help you follow local regulations and safety procedures so you can sit back and relax. Even if you have sailing experience, renting your houseboat with a captain takes away the added stress of operating the boat. This allows you to have a more relaxing vacation.
