Great news for Kentucky—their houseboats are breaking through with successful sales clear on the other side of the world. According to WEKU News, Governor Beshear reported that these latest buyers are offering recession relief in his keynote address at the Kentucky Federation of Advanced Manufacturing Education last week.
Beshear said, "Today, they're exporting luxury houseboats to Dubai and when I went on a trade mission there, a few months ago, I had breakfast on a Kentucky houseboat sitting in the harbor in Dubai halfway around the world.”
What a surreal experience that must have been! The governor added that as these Kentucky firms make more goods and sell more exports, more employees will be needed to keep the cycle turning.
This certainly counts as exciting and promising news for the houseboat market!
