The Waterlovt floating home is a supremely luxurious dwelling that is designed to bring together the very best features of opulent waterborne living and fully independent, autonomous off-grid lifestyles.

This particular floating home was conceived by the reputed Dutch entrepreneur Berend Lens Van Rijn. Located in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, this floating home is designed to be towed into place. Measuring in at 22 x 8.9 meters and boasting an internal space of roughly 90 square meters, it is devised to be able to work in conjunction with solar power systems and off-grid hookups, enabling it to act as a model of luxurious sustainability in a region highly dependent on oil.

Most importantly, the Waterlovt floating home proves that the age-old houseboat design can always be improved upon.
