    Now this could be a lot of fun. I love going on house boats. No wheels but I would still enjoy visiting someone that has one.

    A little pricey for me but it sure is a beautiful little houseboat. I have a question on this, do you have to take it out of the water to clean the hull? I know it would be maybe something that needs to be done on regular boats, but I know nothing about house boats. How is the waste water removed?

      Constructing something that has to be in or around water most of the time tends to be pricey, especially when built to high quality and geared for luxury.

      Maintenance is basically the same as any boat… If you can’t get it out of the water you can use a hookah or scuba equipment to get underneath and clean it that way.

      Most houseboats are cleaned easily with a scrubber or scraper. You could also use a pressure washer beneath the water surface to clean out copper, fiberglass or wooden houseboat bottoms.

      It is, of course, much easier to clean if you can raise it out of the water or at least lean it out during low tide.

      Just avoid using chemicals as otherwise you will not be able to let the water from the washer flow back to the sea. But if growth has developed and isn’t coming off then you’ll have to take the whole thing out of the water and onto land to then use chemical cleaning methods…

      Depending on the type of hull or what the house is using to float on the water (some house boats are built on top of logs, for example) will determine which is the best cleaning method and how often you’ll have to do it, etc.

      While the interior you can clean like a regular house…

      For waste, it’s like a RV in that respect… You empty the black tank when you get to a dock that can service it… Unless you opt for a composting toilet…

      However, house boats usually have dedicated water and power lines hooked up and are left at a permanent dock location that is rented. So you usually only have to worry about the waste water if you move the house and are working off the internal tanks…

    A refreshing and modern design on a small footprint. It seems to be good quality,too.
    However for FL hurricanes shutters for the big windows are needed.

    Looks rather bland inside. No character at all. Much prefer the one shown previously that was in Portland, or thereabouts.

  • Avatar Nanny M

    I do feel it has character. Sleek, understated , a party ready to happen.

    How much are 40’& 47 “. Where are they made or docked..

    • Avatar James D.

      This company is located in the Czech Republic… You’d have to contact them for a exact price as these are typically made to order but a 40′ house boat typically goes for over $150,000…

      Typically costs $2,200 or more a month to live in one… Some expense breakdown is $1,050 a month docking fee, including $250 “live aboard” fee. That covers utilities such as water and electricity, and also allows keeping a car in the parking lot, use the pool and laundry facilities, and receive mail and packages there.

      Some places will cost more than others, however…

      While it’s not unusual for bigger house boats to go over a million but you can get an up to three story structure with every luxury you can imagine…

      Depending on how they are built, though, expected life may be less than 100 years…

      Some areas have a height restrictions but some get around it by giving it a basement level and have done things like have underwater views added to take advantage of that…
