    I really love this tiny houseboat. It’s bright and has a lot of light. I like the open concept in the kitchen/living room. I like the fact that the bedroom has it’s own separate room, even the bathroom is set-up really nice. I would love to see some personal touches on the houseboat some type of roll up shade in the bedroom so when the sun comes in it doesn’t wake you up. Also some plants, maybe a small table & chairs on the deck. But it’s a really nice set-up.

    Thanks for sharing!! Carol Perry

    I’m back I had to take another look at your cute houseboat, I did’nt realize you had some type of shade in your bedroom. I do love your bead board woodwork, it looks really nice!!

    You must get some awesome views on your houseboat. Maybe you could add a grill out on your deck.

    Again thank you for sharing your incredible houseboat!! Carol Perry

    I like the Metroship houseboat. Unfortunately this one doesn’t have the translucent walls which makes the brand unique. I think that there are some disadvantages with this specific set up. Firstly you are in need of curtains and awnings to provide privacy and shade. Secondly on the water you need to clean your windows more often. How you are going to do this without side walks or are they all to open inwards? Thirdly, in a hurricane area there is a lot of debris in the air and glass is exposed to be damaged.
    I personally would prefer the model with translucent walls providing similar light, less weight and cleaning work, better break protection and I guess less expensive, too.
    Anyway the price tag for these boats is probably in the 6 digit range.

    I love house boats too. I would not like quite as much glass though. perhaps some half woods in places would do me better. I want more between me and mother nature than glass is all. I’m also very fair complected and I love the tinting they put in the glass they have! Thank you for sharing your cool houseboat. Thank you Alex. God bless and keep you all. Happy trails or should I say sails 🙂

    I am seriously considering buying a Metroship for my retirement home. I have some questions about which options I should order before I complete my order form. I have tried numerous times to contact Metroship by phone, text, and email and they will not respond. I would be willing to drive to Florida and take a look at these ships, but I don’t know where to locate them. If anybody knows how to contact them, please contact me.

    Hello! Is this houseboat still for sale? I know it was posted a while ago :/

      Hi Danielle, it was for rent on VRBO, not for sale. Looks like you can still rent it though. — Tiny House Talk Team
