Houseboats and floating homes are different and the former serves the purpose of an alternate residential unit. Houseboats have become very popular today and people have been using them to celebrate various events. Essentially, there are two types of houseboats and they are as follows:

• While looking for houseboats, you may come across some houseboats that are harbored and static. These houseboats come equipped with all necessary requirements but lack propelling gadgetries and thus cannot operate on water.
• The second variant of a houseboat is similar to the first one but comes equipped with homely furnishing and also features motor engines to propel them on water. As amazing as it may seem, even these houseboats have their limitations. They cannot be operated on open oceanic areas but can be somewhat successfully be operated in minor water bodies.

The first variant of the houseboat is generally used as residential alternative while the second variant is used as a vocational alternative.

Some luxury houseboats are different from the general houseboats. Luxury houseboats feature refrigerator and air conditioning units, and ample amount of storage space and other special requirements.
