Modern Houseboat Design for Sea-Worthy Luxury Living

Houseboats conjure different images for different people, from traditional houses-on-the-water to barges and other converted boat-to-house properties. Few think of something as sleek, modern and suited to be both a full-time habitat and a mobile water-based home as the SchwimmHausBoot design.

The designers claim inspiration from both maritime styles and land-based structural traditions, a combination of something that looks dynamic and made for traversing waterways but could equally well rival a contemporary urban home in its layout, materials and form. In short, the finished design has the plan and functions of a conventional house but also reflects its aquatic nature.

Inside, creative custom fixtures and furnishings within a white setting make the space seem like a vast converted loft or a spacious hilltop summer home – a getaway of sorts but also a very livable interior design. Public spaces with significant glass for daylighting slowly give way to private spaces as one moves further back into the floating structure.

Best of all, this house boat design is planned perfectly for docking as well as traveling – streamlined to be propelled through the water but also enclosed on the side for when neighbors pull in alongside while it is in port. It also has a front porch that doubles as a front yard and entry space when secured to land but a more private green rooftop deck for looking out on the water.
