Not Your Ordinary Houseboat: A Floating Luxury Retreat

MetroShip Luxury Houseboat

For those of you on the market to buy a high-rise condo in the city, a modest house in the suburbs, or a second getaway home in the wilderness, consider buying the ultimate luxury retreat: the MetroShip Houseboat, a home that floats anyone’s boat.

MetroShip Luxury Houseboat

This isn’t your ordinary houseboat, this is a fully-loaded high-tech architectural beauty on water. With a 48-foot by 12-foot open floor plan and 7-foot-high interior ceiling, it offers the best in comfort, technology, aesthetics and portability.

Open and airy during the day with waterproof hardwood floors and double-glazed windows, at night it truly glows with sophistication thanks to maintenance-free translucent thermal aluminum walls. Just set the remote-control central air conditioning and heating, and put on some music and you’re ready to party.

The living area includes a next-generation media center with Bang & Olufsen stereo, high-definition projector, Nintendo Wii gaming console, and Sony LCD flat-screen monitor for movies, computer, gaming, and Internet projection. Grab a bottle of wine from the gourmet kitchen island. It features handmade cabinets, a Viking refrigerator/freezer and dishwasher, and GaggenauTM in-cabinet oven and cooktop.

Slip into something more comfortable in the spa bathroom with an Italian curved-glass vanity, touch-free faucet, and Kohler frameless full-size shower. The high-capacity tankless water heater and LG steam washer/dryer come in handy–as does the roomy master suite with a luxury W Hotel bed. Not that you’ll be in any hurry to get anywhere, but there are twin 60-horsepower Honda outboard engines. And when it’s time to transport or dock, the lightweight aluminum hull and 12-foot width make it easy.
