The freedom of open water and the comforts of home. Moveable homes with endless opportunities for exploration and changes of scenery.
Converted ferries provide ample space for families. Shanty boats inspire images of Huck Finn's literary journey and youthful spirit. Former cruise ships become charming hotels. Rock the Boat's floating domiciles showcase alternative living solutions from the private to the commercial.
From the romantic lakes of Kashmir to the Bay of Venice, houseboats claim their space atop the water worldwide. A buoyant boutique hotel awaits guests in London. A floating sauna promises relaxation for friends upon the Pielisjoki River. DIY timber rafts evoke pride of craftsmanship whilst inspiring feelings of adventure. These charismatic structures provide refuge from being landlocked and a promise to satisfy curious natures.
Rock The Boat profiles the imaginative inhabitants and designers behind these houseboats; the volume offers inspiration to anyone interested in a touch of escape or even a permanent change of address.
