Where do I buy a Houseboat?

If building a house is cheaper than buying a house (if you exclude land costs) and buying a houseboat is cheaper than buying a house, could it be cost effective to have a "boat" designed and built outside London and then moor it in London to get a relatively cheap London house?
I'm aware moorings are rare and can be expensive, but do you think the costs would work out?

Do you know anything about the boat building world? I know nothing.
Where would one go to design/commission a boat? How much might it cost?
I saw an episode of Grand Designs where some guy spend £50k on a badly made boat, but he had no grasp of project management or planning or design, could a well planned boat be cheaper?
Are there any other clever tricks you can think of to get a nice place to live without needing an enormous mortgage?
These could be boat based or non-boat based. Perhaps a Zeppelin moored above town (Like Sporticus!)
