The Crescasa Houseboat looks like a killer whale. It is envisioned as a home of the future. As the population continues to grow, people will start looking for other places to live. With land filling up quickly, those places will soon extend across water. Although many people already opt for such lifestyles, the Crescasa Houseboat provides a unique inflatable alternative to traditional vessels.

Designed by Tom Pearce, the Crescasa Houseboat is expandable to better accommodate groups of different sizes. In addition to comfortable living quarters, the Crescasa Houseboat will also have aeroponic farms that will allow people to grow their own food. Essentially, it promotes a sustainable, nomadic way of life. The eco-friendly Crescasa Houseboat is made out of bamboo hemp material.
