Sumerset – manufacturer information

We think of ourselves as dream builders. You imagine it; we can create it. We’ve been doing that for over 40 years while pioneering innovations and setting industry benchmarks for safety, quality and value. We offer complete customization, professional blueprints, and unlimited design options – all while striving to produce the safest houseboats in the industry. We meet or exceed ABYC guidelines, the recreational industry’s highest standard for safety and quality. Combine that commitment with superior craftsmanship, attention to detail and personalized customer service and you have the reasons why Sumerset is the largest and most-renowned manufacturer in the business.

Not only did Sumerset make the first aluminum hull, but we continue to make them sturdier than our imitators, with more aluminum content, box bracing and double-welded hull seams. And it’s the way we do things bottom to top, with time honored construction methods. Above and below the surface it’s easy to see the pride and craftsmanship that goes into our Sumerset Houseboats, but our commitment to quality goes much deeper than that. That’s why Sumerset Houseboats have historically enjoyed the industry’s best resale value.

Sumerset has over 40-year long history and more than 4000 houseboats to our credit. Building Sumerset Houseboats is who we are and what we do and that makes us the most recognized name in the industry. With more than 150 years of combined experience in our welding department, we challenge you to find a more dedicated team of workers.

Sumerset Houseboats has been setting the standards for other manufacturers to follow. We own first place in innovations in the design and production of aluminum hull houseboats. Sumerset Houseboats has built its business by listening to our customers and many of our innovations evolve from customer input and ideas.
