We use the name houseboat for luxury motor yacht and floating house on the water. Polish manufacturers are building houseboats in Europe mainly for rest reasons which mean big space to live in: comfortable cabins with beds, separate toilet with shower, and living room with a kitchen.
Europe Houseboats for sale
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 motorboat 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. If you are looking for a fast boat, please think about a cabin cruiser with separate bedrooms and sometimes not only one bathroom. Interestingly, houseboats produced in Poland have the longest history. Our manufacturer is bigger than other houseboat builders in Europe. 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.
Creature comfort in your European boat house
Polish Houseboats on displacement hulls give 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.
Hausbot equipment – family cruise in 2021
Walk down a few steps from the cockpit and you enter the Houseboat Poland 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 manufactured 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 houseboat, 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 houseboat ladder folds out of the way when not in use and features teak steps to give extra grip for wet feet.

Traveling through channels
Have you ever thought about taking your houseboat to, for example, Paris, about being put off by all the planning involved? Here, we reveal everything you need to think about before embarking on the houseboat cruise of a lifetime. Taking your own boat house past the Eiffel Tower and into the heart of Paris is, much like a cruise into our own capital city, a seminal moment in any boating career. It is one of those trips that, regardless of where you keep your houseboat, you should aim to undertake at least once during your boat ownership.
The boat cruise offers not only the excitement of European cities themselves but also a cross-Channel passage. Some serious tidal considerations, locks, serene slow-speed houseboat cruising and ever-changing scenery. It has to be said, though, that taking your houseboat up to Europe by water is one of the more challenging two-week cruisers you can undertake, due to the careful tidal calculations that need to be made. And the many miles you will cover to get there and back from your country.
Slow life on your boat
When you start your planning the first consideration is where you will make the first port of call by your houseboat. The choices are really between Le Havre, with its fuel berth and almost 24-hour access. Or Honfleur, by far the prettier destination but accessed by a lock operating once an hour and with no alongside fuel berth inside.
Inside Honfleur there is a new visitors pontoon outside the Vieux Bassin with water and electricity. This saves having to negotiate the lifting bridge into the inner harbour. And is worth considering if you with your houseboat are only staying one night. The bridge to the inner harbour opens once an hour during working hours with a decent. Typically French, break for lunch. Although there is a fuel berth marked in the almanack, this is for a private Europe houseboats only.
English and German water voyage – house boat builders
Most hausbooten heading up the Rhine will be bound for Düsseldorf as their destination port of call. On the way can be one or two small towns with inviting mobile boats for rent, but apart from a very quick stop these are not recommended as places to stay overnight due to the wash from commercial vessels. You are not allowed to approach by houseboat for the moorings when you are going against the tide. So if the tide is still going with you take the starboard channel past the island and then turn back your houseboat around the bottom of the island and head up to the moorings.
The halte nautique has water and electricity but beware of the tide that can run at a very fast pace. Köln is a good point to take on fuel for your passage up to Düsseldorf in Deutschland. And average house boat will not need to refuel again until coming back through on the way home.
As you near Berlin (where urlaub und hausboot mieten is a very popular type of entertainment) the scenery gives way to industrial landscapes and sometimes industrial dereliction. This final stretch isn’t exactly pretty but that is soon forgotten when the top of the city first comes into view. At this point, you may, depending upon the height of your modern houseboat (check your terrace on the roof), need to lower your VHF aerials to pass under the many bridges.
Although the speed limit remains 20 km/h for boats under 20 tonnes. You should reduce it to zero wash before entering Berlin land. This reduction power on your used boat will be appreciated by all other river traffic. And allow you and your houseboat crew the time to enjoy your entrance and passage through the city.
On your houseboat return, you are aided by the slow current of the river and you should be able to make an extra knot or two. The locks are much easier to navigate on the return leg as you can lasso a bollard both fore and aft and using long lines of a boat, lower yourself gently down as a child. In any case, you need to leave your houseboat in the mooring to ensure you reach your intended port before sunset.
