where can I get one how face & how far will it go more details please love to have one can I see it? take care Ron Tipton, MO
Very cute, but very small! I don’t think I would manage for very long in it. I would need more ‘facilities’. Houseboats have never appealed to me as somewhere to live, but I know people who do live on houseboats on canals here in England and love it.
how much and where is it located? if not for sale do u know where to get one. ty
Until I saw the pics of the ship’s wheel, I didn’t believe this was an actual boat — it’s so teeny! I’ve seen SUV’s bigger than that!
I think it would be fine for a short stay of a night or two, but I wouldn’t want to live in it. Too teeny.
Love the little stove though – not the usual marine one we see in tiny spaces.
I love this! It is adorable and so pretty inside. Very well laid out.
While cute beware it is narrow and top heavy. It needs to be wider with hard chines, flatter bottom or it’ll roll your guts out even from boat wakes or small waves.
And make the deck, cabin top half as light as they can. Then it would be a nice home for 1 person.
A place to sit, lay down, eat, cook, head is all you really need.
Yes, if everyone could live that way, there would be ‘enough’ for everyone.
Best to leave this baby docked somewhere. Otherwise, if you are looking to collect on insurance, take it out on a lake or ocean where the first wave will capsize it in seconds. Also, I’m thinking it might need some sort of ejection seat that would catapult one into a life boat made of rubber that would self inflate as you are being self-ejected. I didn’t see an escape hatch so thinking there might not be any way to get out of a sinking boat quickly. Oh, and the overweight should stay away from this boat – they’ll never fit in it comfortably.
However, all that aside, go fishing with it in mild creeks and streams, maybe some small calm rivers. Whatever you catch, you can skin it and cook it right on the boat.
She is quite seaworthy Robert. She has a full ballasted keel and while she will roll like a sailboat you would have a difficult time capsizing her, and if that ever did happen she would self-right. She does have a hatch in the wheelhouse roof.
Rosebud for sale:
She is listed on Vancouver craigslist at $18,000
Is the tiny houseboat for sale? Who makes it? How much dies it cost?
It is nice to see someone from the British Columbia on here.. I have seen Rosebud parked at Haney Marina in Maple Ridge. I never guessed it was a tiny house. Well Done 🙂
Wondering what the overall dimensions of the hull are?
I have plans for a fully outfitted 14 footer with a cold molded hull, small diesel, and all wood cabin, and would like to compare.
looking for all season tiny house rv’s that can be pulled by a chevy 1500 or 2500 HD diesel. thanks
As you can see by my Annie I have some Ideas about Tugs.(www.tugboatwilly.com) Couple of things. First is what the use will be…This Tug has the ability to get fast response with the large wheel(Prop) so towing is an option. No delta Vee so speed will NEVER HAPPEN…Regulations for construction in the USA has different requirements under 20′ LOA so that is why Annie is 20’1″..Less regulations(Expense) to build commercially. Mine has Berth, Head, Inside seating for five, galley…and six feet of open aft Deck…Plus she will do 15mph with a 35 HP Yamaha….Depends on what you want, I was doing a 1892 square stern style…
Not to take anything away from my Annie but the Rosebud would ride smoother into a 2′ chop due to the displacement hull. My Annie was less than 1800# with full gear(life vests, two Survival suits, and fuel) and with four adults plus myself could do 15 MPH but was designed for flat water use (Hard Chine) and was uncomfortable in close chop above 2′. The six foot aft deck was a wonderful area to fish from as well as carry additional passengers.
Thanks for these suggestions! — Tiny House Talk Team
Very interesteding in the little Rosebud Home Boat.
I think it is both cool and cute. It seems to be roomy despite its small size on the outside.
Is the Rosebud Tiny House Boat for sale? Would you know of any tiny home boats that are for sale.
What kind of stove is that?
I read elsewhere that this has a head but there are no pictures of it.
