These Concept Houseboats Bring Luxury Living To The High Seas

As sea levels continue to rise, an ever-growing number of designers and engineers are looking into potential solutions to this increasingly concerning global issue. This week, Wojciech Morsztyn, an up-and-coming freelance designer, tossed his hat in the problem-solving ring with his idea on how to remedy the dilemma in the form of futuristic luxury houseboats.

The London-based Royal College Of Art graduate says these floating residences are intended to be anchored in clusters — connected via walkways and set half-a-mile off-shore, affording ample security and privacy while still only being a few minutes from the mainland. Each of Morsztyn’s concept boats is designed to be largely self-sustainable, capable of filtering and storing water, and can harness solar energy to power the luxury vessels. The boats boast a two-story setup with open floorplans and massive windows that afford sprawling panoramic ocean views. Morsztyn believes this concept could be implemented within the next decade-and-a-half and could be priced at as little as £150,000 (approximately $190,000) per vessel.
