Floatwing Houseboat

A company in Portugal called "Friday”, have presented the Floatwing, a prefabricated floating houseboat that can be made to order and delivered almost anywhere in the world.

It features a fully equipped kitchen, AC, wine cellar, a barbecue on the upper terrace, and a pellet stove to keep you warm on cold days. It is solar powered by two small outboard motors, letting you move it around easily, and wake up in a different place every day. With a fixed width of 20 feet and lengths ranging from 30 to 60 feet, the possibilities are almost endless, choose a romantic gateway for two or a mobile house in the middle of a lake for the entire family or a group of friends.
