Thoroughbred Houseboats has been in business since 1996 when a group of local craftsmen joined forces to manufacture Kentucky’s best built custom houseboats. The first of these houseboats rolled off the assembly line in 1997 and we have been producing top-quality custom houseboats ever since. At Thoroughbred, customer satisfaction, quality, and design are our number one top priority.
We listen to our customers’ needs and wants trying to meet and exceed their expectations. A lot of our design and improvements are customer driven, starting with the customer asking “can you do this?” Today, Thoroughbred builds top quality houseboats, centered around our customers’ ideas, and making Thoroughbred “The Best Built Boat,” as well as, the best “Glass on the Water” houseboat available.
Thoroughbred has moved to a larger facility in Monticello, Kentucky, “The Houseboat Capital of the World.” This new facility is much larger allowing everything under the same roof, manufacturing, cabinet shop, parts, sales, repair, service and design. Also at our new facility we manufacture world known Sumerset Houseboats as the result of the Thoroughbred Acquisition. Thoroughbred offers “Complete Customization”, “Unlimited Design options”, as well as, building a boat to meet and exceed top quality, safety and value.
Our customers are our number one asset!
Combine all this with the commitment to superior craftsmanship, our attention to detail, our personalized customer service, our outstanding quality, these are the reasons why Thoroughbred is the leader in the business.
