The tiny home trend is now taking to the open ocean with this beautiful tiny houseboat. The Nautilus Hausboote is a sophisticated floating home with a stunning interior. The compact houseboat is outfitted with numerous space-saving features and enough room for a family of six.
The Berlin-based company that makes the boats, Hausboot Kaufen, is leading the way into a new generation of floating tiny homes that offer just as much comfort as their land-based counterparts. Although the Nautilus design comes in a few versions, the standard houseboat offers just under 500 square feet of living space. The boat has two stories, with the living space on the first floor and an open-air deck on the roof. A LED lighting system is installed throughout.
The entrance is through a serene outdoor deck that leads to the interior living room – a light-filled space with a comfy seating area and kitchen. A contemporary suspended fireplace and underfloor heating warms up the space on chilly nights at sea. Floor-to-ceiling glass walls add to the feeling of openness on the interior as well as an abundance of natural light.
The adjacent kitchen has plenty of counter space and storage cupboards. There are two bedrooms and an office space that can double as a guest room at the back of the boat. All in all the houseboat can accommodate a family of six.
