Houseboats for Sale in South Africa

We get a lot of inquiries from charter clients asking who built our Houseboats.  Fortunately we didn’t have to look far :-).  We designed and built our own.  This side of the family business is called Shelter Marine, a link to our dedicated website can be found below.  This marriage between design, manufacture and charter does put us in a unique position of knowing what works and what doesn’t.  Whether you will be using your houseboat for commercial and private purposes we will be able to give you value added expertise on suitable layouts and streamlined systems.

Houseboats have become quite popular in South Africa, but because it’s a fairly new concept you will not find many good quality houseboats for sale. We build them new and to your specs.  It’s a wonderful alternative to river/lake property ownership, works out cheaper too.  Houseboats can be manufactured in various designs and sizes, from easily trailer-able cabin boats to permanently moored floating homes to 10 berth cruising houseboats.

We have many pictures of our various boats, but viewing them personally is always best.  This will give you a better idea of the workmanship we provide.  We have a number of houseboats located on the Vaal River in Vanderbijlpark.  Setting up a viewing with our team will be welcomed.  You being part of the build process makes the journey all the more rewarding.

This purchase is all about the lifestyle but if you look after her – she can be more.  She can be an investment.
