Houseboats

The term «Houseboat» appeared in Russia only recently and became natural as a new fashion in shipbuilding and as an attractive alternative to motor boats and yachts. Sea Tech Ltd. analyzed all houseboat types in Europe and USA and was one of the first organizations who presented novel projects of houseboats for the Russian market with an allowance for the peculiarities of Russian waterways and with a focus on Russian buyers.

We thank our colleagues – Mr. S. Skardov – ex-CEO of 'Fram' company and its personnel – for joint elaboration and construction of the new generation of pilot houseboats named 'Elan'.

We present here our realized projects of houseboats ELAN' and OTRADA as well as some promising designs and studies on prospective houseboats for both major and minor rivers:

Studies of touring routes on Russia rivers and of touring market make it possible to draw the following conclusions:

 1)  Minor navigable and non-navigable rivers:

- Small navigable and non-navigable rivers, particularly those inside the Golden Ring of Russia (Klyazma, Tyosha, Nelma etcetera) are environmentally clean, less populated and have a lot of easy-to-access historical landmarks and therefore are of significant touristic potential.

 - The existing tourist motor vessels, though having acceptable levels of comfort, cannot provide adequate riverside leisure because of deep draught and rather high freight costs.      

- For leisure on rivers of the "Moscow Circumnavigation" system with entering the navigable tributaries (Sura, Klyazma etcetera) and on minor rivers with entering non-navigable creeks (Tyosha, Kerzhenets etcetera), the best solution will be lightweight shallow-draught houseboats subject to the surveillance of the State Small Boat Inspectorate (EMERCOM of Russia).       

 2)  Major navigable rivers:

- The market demands houseboat-type vessels both for individual use and for touristic chartering.

- Vessels intended for traditional cruising tend to be of a touring bus capacity or higher that is 25 to 55 passengers. From an operational point of view, such vessels are classed not as houseboats, but as small-size cruisers of enhanced comfort and shall be designed in accordance with Russian River Register's Rules for passenger ships.
