Eco-Sea Cottages Brings Houseboats Into the Modern Age

17-Nov-2015

Do you love your catamaran to the point that you wish you could just live on it? Are you tired of being rooted in one city and sometimes wish you could just putter away somewhere new overnight? Well, if so, you’re in luck: Eco-Sea Cottages, a houseboat builder based in the Pacific Northwest, has designed the Savanti, a stylish houseboat built on a catamaran hull. These futuristic-looking cruisable waterborne homes are both practical and eye-catching, with a livable floorplan and sleek design.

The Savanti comes in two sizes, 31 and 36 feet, and two models, the Savanti Docksider and the Savanti Cruiser. Both models and sizes have a vaulted, interior ceiling, allaying any claustrophobic fears. They also come with a fully-equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances, such as a double-door fridge with freezer, a stove/oven, a microwave and a dishwasher. Both models are also equipped with full-size beds, shower stalls, a large living area and a drool-worthy 16 x 9- foot panoramic window — perfect for nature-watching from your spot on the water. The 31-foot Savanti can sleep six people, while the 36-foot sleeps eight. For the style-impaired, the company will help customers with floorplans and interior décor.

Although the two Savanti models are fairly similar, the Docksider is for the more serious house-boater, with a higher hull and fully standard equipped with an engine, bow thruster, generator, navigation instruments, electric anchor windlass and more. The Docksider can reach up to 14 mph, and is perfect for crossing rivers, streams and coastal bays. If you dig the houseboat life, but aren’t sold on the Savanti’s modern aesthetics, Eco-Sea Cottages also sells a line of traditional houseboats.
