The Best Of Boat WorldsTM

Floatwing is brought to us from Friday, which is a team of naval architects, engineers and industrial designers from the University of Coimbra in Portugal.  They just published first photos of their prefabricated floating house that can be built to order and transported to lakes and waterways anywhere worldwide.

The modular design allows it to be shipped in two containers and assembled on site.  Friday describes themselves as “creating technologically advanced nautical and water related leisure devices and equipment”, with a focus on “modularity, personalized client relationships, energy efficiency and environmental sustainability”.  And we are all in!

The Floatwing is designed to be entirely self-sustainable for up to a week at a time, letting you take up residence at the most beautiful remote spots.  You can specify the amount of equipment integrated in to the house such as a pellet stove that burns compressed wood or biomass, water and waste tanks with 7 day capacity, and a wastewater treatment plant that uses activated sludge.

The house has a fixed width of 6 meters with lengths between 10 and 18 meters.  The layout is customizable whether you want a cosy studio or a fully furnished 3 bedroom home with 2 baths.  She’s powered with a motor partly by solar energy, it can move itself at speeds of three knots.

Find your Floatwing at Friday .
