This Self-Sufficient Expedition Home Was Once A 100-Person Emergency Lifeboat

While there’s no denying the appeal of an off-the-lot adventure rig, still more impressive are the home-built hacks. The unlikely conversions that transform ill-suited starting candidates into final products entirely their own. If there’s one thing to be learned from such examples, it’s that the only limit to your vehicle’s adventure capabilities is the extent of your imagination.

For instance, take this build by two Norwegian architects. Dubbed ‘Stødig,’ it was once a 100-person emergency lifeboat; however, it’s now a completely self-sufficient expedition home. The project took the pair a little over a year to complete, during which time they gutted the boat’s interior in order to give it a top-to-bottom redesign. What results is a fully-furnished exploratory vessel with two forward cabins, as well as a combined kitchen and eating area, a bathroom, and a pair of bunk beds. But that’s not all — gone is the boat’s entire rear structure, replaced instead by a set of curved windows and a new cockpit constructed from plywood and fiberglass. Having already completed its maiden voyage from New Haven to Tromsø, Stødig will be taken even further north on its next journey. You can learn more at the website linked below.
