What is a Floathouse?

A floathouse is a new kind of floating home designed to do one thing better than any other floating structure: to stay in one place, comfortably and securely, on the ocean.

The floathouse is a finished home, ready to move in. It is a basic building-block of our more advanced structures. It is designed to be a year-round home for individuals or a family.

The round hull of this structure makes it extremely comfortable for passengers when rolling side to side. Compared to boats you may have been on before with different hull shapes which roll very quickly and tend to make many people seasick, the round hull rolls very slowly and tends not to produce seasickness. When this structure is built into some of our other configurations, like the Maran or Bermuda configs, roll can be reduced even more.

Constraints

If purchased by itself, roll-stability needs to be considered. If tied to a dock or to another structure, it can be safe and stable, but should not be used where it will be exposed to large wave activity without support from other structures that will keep it from rolling in waves.
