Floating houses and motor boats – differences in construction
Motor boats are high-stability vessels that do not require ballasting. This means that we don’t need a boatbuilder to create them. For this reason, boats are relatively easy to build or purchase. Their lightweight but robust construction ensures mobility and manoeuvrability. Most catamarans are based on steel frames, coated with aluminium and anti-corrosion coating. Boat shells are light, wooden elements built on the basis of lacquered wood panels. The construction of a motor boat can be supplemented with, among others, solar panels or power generators.
Transport of motor boats and transport of floating houses
The main advantage of catamarans is the possibility of relatively fast and cheap transportation. Of course, it depends on the characteristics of a given water area. Water reservoirs connected by a system of locks are best suited for this purpose. This mobility causes that our boat is still treated as a water vehicle and not – unlike a house on the water – as a residential object. This means that its use does not require the maintenance of separate regulations relating, among others, to the address of residence. For these reasons catamarans are mostly dedicated to water tourism rather than long-term living on water.
