I’ve always wanted to live on a houseboat. The sounds of the sea gently lapping against the boat would be a dream come true. But sadly I get sea-sick and the only way I am ever going to live in a houseboat is if it’s inland. Much like these amazing examples…
10 – USA
With impressive views overlooking Lake Huron in Michigan, I can only presume this is a house shaped to look like a ship. That’s my guess anyway.
9 – Haiti
This crazy Green boat shaped house on the boulevard of Cap-Haïtien is just made to look like a boat, but it looks amazing!
8 – Brazil
This is a house as well as a small hotel. I’m guessing this is again a house shaped like a boat.
7 – USA
Located in Santa Monica is a cruise ship house valued at $6.749 million and even Simon Cowell & One Direction has stayed there!
6 – Ireland
While only half a boat, it is still unusual to see a boat shaped house halfway up a hill!
5 – USA
Located in Gustorf, Milwaukee is the world’s worst lighthouse because a ship ran into it and ran aground to become a family home. OK, so that’s not true. In fact, it’s just a house shaped like a boat!
4 – USA
Located in Put-in-Bay, it is a small village located in Ohio. This one really is an inland ship turned into a family home.
3 – Croatia
The Mirko Jelin ship house was once a very busy restaurant in Cista Velika, Croatia. While in ruins now it is apparently being turned into a luxury home.
2 – USA
Encinitas is a beach city in Southern California. Built in 1928 they are merely replicas of boats that sailed from the once busy harbour.
1 – South Korea
This amazing cruise liner hotel is 165 meters long, 45 meters high and weighs 30,000 tonnes. While it does have 211 rooms it also has 13 residential homes inside of it as well, effectively making it a cruise ship house! Now that’s what I call a boat house!
