* ''VideoGame/{{Suikoden V}}'' has the Oboro Detective Agency, whose members live together on a small boat as both coworkers and surrogate family. This lets them pick up and go whenever they want; if the player isn't careful, this can lead to them being LostForever, courtesy of them leaving before the Prince can convince them to join his cause.

* A pretty popular ''{{Archie}}'' story involves one. Archie and Betty find a girl in a swamp, and take her to their friend, an old captain living in a houseboat. The girl is revealed to be an heiress, but her uncle is trying to kill her. Archie and his friends set a trap for him, luring him to the boat, planning on jumping him when he opens the door. However, the uncle decides instead to cut the lines, sending them down toward the InevitableWaterfall. [[spoiler:Of course, the gang had planned for this, and there was a cable that kept the boat from drifting ''too'' far down. Makes you wonder why the captain lived so close to a waterfall...]]

In RealLife, houseboats are typically mobile homes on pontoons, and are as close to CoolBoat as TheAllegedCar is to CoolCar. Some works with {{Loser Protagonist}}s will have the hero live on such a houseboat to highlight their tenuous grasp on normalcy.
