‘Houseboat Capital of the World’ Lake Cumberland area, Ky — 1 Comment

  1. A friend of my father named James “Jim” Sharpe actually invented houseboats in Somerset Ky after a stint in the military. He pictured a landing craft with living quarters on it and began building hulls then finishing them out with all the luxuries. He named his business Sumerset Houseboats and as word spread he shipped them all over the country and eventually overseas. He is truly the “father of houseboats” and Somerset, Ky is the”birthplace of houseboats”
