|Kaslo Shipyard Company - Kootenay Lake|
Cruise, fish and explore sensational Kootenay Lake from the unique vantage point of a houseboat. It's all yours to enjoy: the quiet hidden coves, vast sandy beaches, vibrant lakeside towns and superb freshwater fishing. Choose from our four seaworthy cruise vessels, each fully furnished with a spacious wheelhouse, full galley, full bathroom and complete sleeping facilities for four, six or eight people. Since 1970, this has been the holiday of choice for families, friends, couples, business groups and fishing parties from across Canada, the U.S. and abroad.
British Columbia's Kaslo Shipyard Company fleet has been in business for the past
What's the drawing card for Kaslo? Is it the owners? Their clients? The amenities? The nearness to Alberta and USA?
Houseboating in British Columbia is Saltwater or Freshwater, it's your choice. Don't forget about River rafting.
We found the original document for this Post at the BC Legislative Library from 1980 and we thought it would be curious to know if the industry had gone from boom to bust, or holding it's own...... We chose not to do a tally of HOW MANY vessels were in existence in 1980 (the data is there though) but one may only guess that today's fleet is much larger, based on tourism statistics.
You may have many fond memories of your first houseboat vacation, they are still there, waiting, to be rekindled.
