Mini-Houseboats Are Now A Thing, And We Really, Really Want One

How many people out there, whether you’re interested in prefab houses or you’re part of the tiny house society movement, have thought about ever taking a cruise (is that the right word) in a houseboat?

A designer named Marjin Beije might have an option for tiny house shoppers who have access to a plot of water, and who like the idea of being surrounded by water all the time — a tiny houseboat.

Nautilus Houseboats have designed ‘Nautino Maxi’, a modern houseboat that’s large enough to sleep up to 6 people.

Yes, it’s a floating tiny home big enough for two rooms and a deck between the two. One side is an interesting bathroom construction, walled by thin wooden slats and leaving only a counter/sink and faucet for washing, as well as the enclosed toilet.

There’s windows on this bathroom area as well as the sleeping area.

One thing that might not make everyone happy to hear. For the sake of simplicity, everything from the sinks and elsewhere just drains down, although I guess you could rig something up like other tiny homes and prefab modular houses have for waste removal.

I left one thing out: there’s a sundeck on top with a diving platform at the very top, so tiny house dwellers can take a dive into their yard — or lake! To visit the designer’s webpage, (click here).
