Houseboats offer a distinctive and memorable living experience that traditional accommodations cannot provide. Many travellers are drawn to the idea of staying on the water, enjoying picturesque views, and experiencing life on a houseboat.
Houseboats often cater to a specific niche market of travellers who are seeking a more adventurous and unconventional lodging option. This demand can lead to higher occupancy rates and potentially higher rental rates compared to standard accommodations.
Houseboats are not as abundantly available for rent as regular apartments or houses available for rent, which can drive up demand. This in turn can enabled the charging of premium rates, especially in areas that are popular tourist destinations.
Due to their unique, houseboats present an excellent investment opportunity for anyone who has available water space on their land, providing an income from a previously un-utilised asset.
A quick look online confirms the average “going rate” is in excess of £150/night for floating accommodation, often with a two night minimum stay, giving the potential for increased revenue per booking.
