Thesayboat Modern Houseboat

Have you ever daydreamed of selling all of your worldly possessions and buying a boat or had that romanticized notion of living on a houseboat with the water gently rocking you to sleep? After seeing Thesayboat houseboat, I want to make that dream a reality. Designed and owned by Marek Ridky of Flowhouse in the Czech Republic, the houseboat’s design was created as a home with views of the stars.

Designed as a house for two or a place for a weekend getaway, the boat floats on a steel pontoon and has all of the comforts any home would ever need.

The boat is basically 1-1/2 floors, with the bottom one housing the living room, kitchen, bathroom, and closet while the upper part contains the enclosed bedroom. There is a deck right off the bedroom with a jacuzzi.

The open metal staircase and upstairs glass bannister give the space a loft-like feeling.

That’s a big bathroom for a boat!

The large bedroom is surrounded by windows to take in the view.

The horizontal wood slats help block out some of the sun but also give the exterior plenty of visual interest.
