Rivertrotter Houseboats

The first Rivertrotter to be built was a prototype of a houseboat. Its design is comparable to that of narrowboats, but unlike these it is extremely stable and comfortable to reside on. This is thanks to the catamaran-shaped hull design.

All tests of the prototype have been satisfactory. The hull shape is allowing a maximum speed of 10 knots.

The cost for a Rivertrotter Houseboat is from 280,000 euros. This includes insulated steel hull and deck with interior finish, hatches, windows, floor board, engine and steering gear. This price does not include tanks, bulkheads, bunks and other furniture which can be ordered separately.

Dimensions:
Length 14.83 meters (48.65 ft); 12.192 meters in transportation mode (40 foot High Cube shipping container size)
Width 2.438 meters (8 ft)
Draught 0.70 meters (27 in)

The prototype has a 100 horse power engine and the maximum speed is 8 knots. This speed can probably be achieved with a smaller engine.

The inside layout of Rivertrotter Houseboats can be adapted for many purposes. For example they can be used as exhibition units for promotional purposes, they can be fitted with a number of bunks for use as rental or scouting boats, they can be fitted with laboratory equipment for research purposes, etc.

Please note that the prototype is not completely finished at this stage. For example it still doesn’t have windows and it isn't yet ballasted in the bow area.

 

This prototype is for sale at the favorable price of 600  000 SEK + 25 % tax

(73 350 USD or 64 450 EUR + 25 % tax).
