Revamping Holiday Mansion

It's nearly impossible to walk most marinas without coming across at least one Holiday Mansion houseboat. These popular crafts were first manufactured in 1965 by Jack Byquist and still have many loyal followers. Today, thanks to Lee Burgess and Ed Maynard, Holiday Mansion is once again building boats with the same philosophy-to provide quality production that is well engineered and fairly priced-as its founder once did. 

Nestled between the houseboating hubs of Lake Cumberland and Dale Hollow Lake, the new 51,520-square-foot facility in Albany, Ky., is on 6.1 acres and is designed to accommodate up to 150 boats per year.

"At the present time we are working with Volvo and building a 52 Coastal Commander for a client with IPS Drives and Volvo diesels," says Burgess. "With the assistance from Volvo, this will be a new era for Holiday Mansion and a first in the houseboat market. The IPS drives will make cruising and docking a breeze and at cruising speeds it will just sip diesel fuel, which makes it perfect for the retirees. Resurrecting the Holiday Mansion line and keeping the name representing a quality product is what we are dedicated to doing."
