Good news for travellers desirous to get out and discover the beautiful environment of Europe’s waterways in fashion; a Berlin-based company has created a variety of beautiful, trendy houseboats accessible for buy and lease that would be the excellent vessel for any journey.
Called Nautilus, the company was based by architect Andreas Hoffman, and custom-builds boats to the specs and budgets of shoppers. According to Andreas, the concept was created after he noticed a spot within the market. “We wanted to buy a houseboat, but there was nothing that met our expectations in design, functionality, quality and awareness of life. So we decided to design and build our own,” he advised Lonely Planet Travel News.
Growing from that idea, the company now gives six various kinds of houseboat, together with the namesake Nautilus, which has a ravishing floating hearth, foldable gangways, a convertible roof system and room for as much as eight adults and two youngsters, in addition to the seven-berth Nautino Mini, which has a picnic terrace and a rooftop space for sunbathing, and may also perform as a docked lake home when it isn’t being pushed. All of the houseboats come outfitted with freezers, heating, showers, electrical bathrooms and fitted kitchens, and Nautilus has even designed a futuristic, two-story holiday home that may sit in water on a devoted dock, providing unrestricted views by means of its giant, curved home windows. Called the Ei-Home, it features a 50-square-metre roof space that may home photo voltaic panels for added sustainability.
“Customers are very happy and impressed, and after just a few hours on the boats their stress and troubles are far away,” Andreas stated. Understanding that the majority travellers don’t have the cash to shell out on houseboats, the most affordable of which begins at €86,554 ($107,403), the company created a chartering service that permits individuals to lease the houseboats in Grünheide on the Werlsee, Köpenick and on the Mecklenburg Lake District.
With manufacturing services in Berlin, Nautilus takes care of all levels, together with planning, manufacturing and set up, and to this point they have constructed over 30 houseboats for patrons throughout the nation, with plans to develop to different German-speaking nations and components of Scandinavia.
