I love this, much better than a summer lake-front cottage.

Interesting concept here. Not my cup of tea, but being able to haul and launch does have some appeal.

We go camping every summer to our favourite destination; Osoyoos. The lake temperature there is about 20C.
Last summer I was looking at a very inexpensive strip of lakefront property that was so small that it didn't allow for a house/cottage, but only parking, but it did have a dock.
Having a house boat like this tied to it would be very economical and a blast.

...it seems to be very good value at €200k; you would be looking at more than that for a new 32' boat on that budget!

This wouldn't replace a real ocean going boat, just a 3 month summer lake retreat.

The German design looks very fresh and modern in comparison; it must be architect designed rather by than marine navel architect!

I think that boat was for sale a year or two ago. Seem to recall it made the rounds in a couple threads here.

Marin-I would be very leery of wingtips hitting the water. In 19171, we lost out Squadron XO in a TA-4F to a wingtip hitting water. We were practicing low level runs off Morehead City, NC and he was about 15-20 feet off the water and turned just before pulling up. His left wingtip caught a large swell. Believe me, you do not want to see what happens hitting a wingtip at about 290 knots. It was an awful sight. It was later determined that only about 2 feet of the leading edge hit water, but it was enough to cause the aircraft to start turning cartwheels at that speed.

A normal wingtip and a wingtip that is actdually a large, streamlined float as in the case of the GEVs are two very different things and will behave very differently if they contact the water.

Max Simmons,
I've seen that boat before. Nice boat. Looks like the pic was taken in Alaska??

Here's a old locally built boat from the Mt Vernon area of Puget Sound. Brand name Skagit. This one is quite restored and giving rides. This color was popular on cars of the time too.

First picture maybe somewhat small... but... the second one is down-right scary!

OMG, OMG, OMG... that pict throws me back into youth at boat yards in NY refinishing bright work. Varnish here looks great. I know how many hours of coat/sand, coat/sand, coat/sand... it takes to get that much of a smooth shine!

At my age, now; I do really like having fiberglass boats with NO exterior bright-work!

For the big-boat people - this might be of interest. I think some people will especially like this sales pitch "SHAPAMA is so spacious inside that it would make an excellent "moving home".

Some nice photos at the link:

Wow !

This caught my eye:

Quote:
. The water filtration system and water maker were completely replaced and upgraded, producing clean water down to one micron, which is better than any municipal water system. The 2200 gallons of fresh water can be completely replenished in 20-30 hours. Additionally, a complete duplication of pumps, seals, a/c compressors, filters, and even tools were purchased.

I was at a resort area in Panama where the 'island space' was very little in terms of land mass, so the solution was to divide up the 'lots' into very small plots that basically provide for 1 parked car and a bathroom facility (on land, so as to not be out over the water). Then a dock out to the living space built on piers out over the water's edge.

How about something a little more exotic for the on-the-water portion of the residence....

USS Pennsylvania Nuclear Sub

This is a video on how the USS Pennsylvania works. It is a nuclear powered submarine powered by a lump of uranium the size of your fist that provides all of the power to navigate and provide power for all of the daily operations. It has been running since 1989 without having to refuel. Ever wonder how they get fresh air under water to last for months? How do they launch a nuclear warhead? How they can make the submarine quiet to avoid detection?

This is fascinating for those that have no idea about how these ships operate!
