We made this design for a motorized houseboat, which you can sail over lakes and rivers allowing you to reach every marina in Europe.
There is a lot of demand for this type of homes for the real adventurer with whom you can not only live on the water but can also sail!
Commissioned by a German adventurer and entrepreneur, we designed a motorized houseboat to realize a long lasting dream. The result is a modern, sailing, slender house that is halfway between a houseboat and a ship.
The design consists of large window frames on 3 sides of the ship that not only provide plenty of daylight, but also provides the user with outward views of their surroundings. This transparency is characteristic to our designs and ensures a maximum water experience and a direct relationship with nature. From your bed, from the roof terrace, the front deck – or the back deck – the living room or the bathroom you can immediately jump into the water, and then dry up and relax on the sunny roof terrace or on the semi-covered front deck or the small terrace at the rear of the ship.
Ecological living and sailing on water
The dreamboat has not only turned into a reality for the client, but has also developed into a product that allows you to live on the water in an ecologically responsible manner throughout the year.
The sailing models are equipped with an electric hybrid drive and solar panels are fitted on the roof for generating solar energy. The hull of the ship is made of aluminium to protect and preserve the water and animal world. It is a sailing houseboat which gives you an ecological experience on and around the water.
All sailing houseboat models are available to view on our designated website www.wohnschiffmanufaktur.de, and offer maximum comfort for the real water lover.
Varying from 15 meters in length, with a very compact floor plan; up to 24 meters in length with a very generous layout, making clever use of the storage space under the deck. Each model can be carefully constructed according to the specific wishes of the customer.
The first sailing houseboat has been built in an ecologically responsible manner, with special attention paid to the use of sustainable materials and installations.
The ambition of our company and our team of entrepreneurs en engineers, who made the floating houseboats marketable as a product, is emphasized by our clear statement “we only want to construct ships in which we would like to live”
