Boat Insurance: Can I use my vessel as a houseboat?

It is possible to extend the permitted use of narrowboats and motor barges to include their use as a houseboat, subject to them being the owner’s primary residence and still being actively used to navigate waterways each year.

Where a vessel is a houseboat it may also be possible to extend the boat insurance to include cover for its contents.
