How much houseboat cost? The new craft in Europe
Houseboats provide a lot of benefits. You can take them with you on holiday, have your friends over for dinner, or just enjoy the views from your backyard. But there are some things you might want to consider before buying a floating house / boat.
There are two types of houseboats:
- Pontoon boats, which are built on special pontoons and
- Self-built boats, which are built on a steel frame and come with plans for everyone to follow.
Pontoon boats are more popular because they’re cheaper than self-built boats. They also have smaller price tags that start at around EUR 60,000 – EUR 80,000. On the other hand, self-built boats start at around EUR 120,000 – EUR 200,000 but you’ll need to pay for extras such as a cabin and sails.
Where to buy a houseboat for sale? Yacht manufacturers and builders
Houseboats are mainly manufactured in Poland (Wiki). Thanks to a well-developed supply chain, our designs can be found in:
- the Netherlands and Belgium,
- Qatar and UAE,
- UK, Scotland and Wales,
- Denmark, Sweeden, Norway and Finland,
- Portugal, Spain and Italy,
- Croatia and Romania.
Our prices are fixed everywhere, but the most profitable purchase would be direct from Poland to avoid VAT on barges.
Polish houseboat on displacement hull gives the helmsman a comfortable, supportive bucket seat that swivels, and plenty of room to either stand or sit. Colour-coordinated carpet covers the motor yacht deck and offers good traction. The jump seats flank a padded motor box, and their cushions pull out and lie atop the armrests to form a sun pad. A shelf that rests flush on the motor box lifts to form a table. Each jump seat lifts and slides to reveal stowage beneath – starboard side for the battery, port for an insulated ice chest.
Who designs luxury boat houses?
The newest projects of boats for sale are made in Poland and other countries in Europe like the Netherlands and the UK. The biggest houseboat builders are located in Poland, so we will now focus on their designs. Due to the huge experience, we can design a boat house interior for you within a couple of minutes during a dedicated meeting in our office.
How boats are equipped?
Walk down a few steps from the cockpit and you enter the Hausboote Polen cabin, one of these motorboats that will not give you claustrophobia what you can experience sleeping in a day cruiser boat, but each kind of powerboat has its unique destination. Ports on either side brighten up the area, while a hatch provides more light and ventilation. A V-berth and portable head make overnighting a possibility. Houseboat amenities include a kitchen that holds a sink with a water tank, oven, and fridge. Of course, the cabin has a shower and toilet. These types of motor yachts possess two-four bedrooms with comfortable matrasses, wardrobe, and enough space for changing.
Stepping aboard your houseboat produced in Poland you can note a non-glare black helm console into which VDO instruments are placed in two tiers. On top where they are more visible, the large tachometer and speedometer flank the fuel gauge. Our hausboot can be equipped with a flybridge. Below, but still clearly visible, are the voltmeter, temperature, oil pressure, waste, and water tank level. A lower panel holds all electrical rockers with fuse holders, flanking either side of the wheel. Everything is well identified with white-on-black lettering.
When you are ready for some water activities on your boathouse, there is an integral swim platform aft finished in non-skid. There are also plenty of handholds by which even exhausted swimmers can pull themselves up. Also mounted at the exterior of the transom is a stainless grab rail that works its way into a railing for a stainless swim ladder. The ladder folds out of the way when not in use and features teak steps to give extra grip for wet feet.
Is living on a houseboat fun? Boat with mooring and barge on their own pontoons
Houseboat living is a lifestyle that provides the perfect escape from the world. Designed to be mobile, houses are able to leave the dock under power and can always find a new location to anchor. They are even able to stay on a pond or mooring for extended periods of time. You can take your family on vacation for weeks without worrying about airport security lines, baggage limits, or cargo limits. A yacht is not an option if you want space and simplicity; it’s necessary if you want luxury and extravagance. Houseboats provide the perfect balance of both worlds: easy living and luxury at your fingertips.
The houseboat has been around for centuries and has always been seen as an efficient way of living with minimalistic tendencies, but now they come equipped with all the luxuries of today’s modern life. One of the first things that catch your attention in our houseboats is the combination of an attractive style with obvious comfort. This kind of boat is not quick – it should be equipped with strong sustainable primary engines (diesel or outboard high thrust engines) and additional motors: bow and stern thrusters.
