Buyers may find cheap used houseboats on sites such as Craigslist.org, eBay.com, iBoats.com and BoatTrader.com. The price filtering tools on these sites allow users to increase their chances of finding the cheapest used houseboats.
BoatTrader.com contains several features that allow a user to display the most relevant listings to her needs and preferences, including search filters such as location of seller, boat manufacturer and number of rooms in the boat. Each listing on the site contains pictures of the houseboat and a description of its condition. Users interested in purchasing a boat found on the site need to make arrangements with the seller, as the site takes no part in this process.
