When it comes to new houseboats for sale, the tubiQ sets the new standard of life on water, and definitely a vibrant futuristic house-boat design.

The tubiQ houseboat is a new development in the houseboating industry! We are now building the first prototype houseboats, and the tubiQs will be on the market soon. If you would like to see a TubiQ houseboat spec sheet and manual.

Live aboard needs

I must agree with some of the comments. Of course, I think that windows will come with the buildout but my comment is two fold.

First, the handrails leaning forward may not be well accepted. Stepping out onto a deck most people like to lean against the rail and contemplate, drink a beverage, rest their arms.

Secondly, an outside walk around of at least 18-20 inches with railing and mooring cleats is a must. The way you are building this you can have that on the lower deck and still have width on the upper deck.

Otherwise I would be very interested in seeing the finished product.

tubiQ, design your floating life
by: Riko

Dear Russel, thanks for your comments.

For sure "the real thing" will look different. That is why this is a rendering. We have almost finished the first prototype and I can tell you: it looks amazing!

I will think about your comments on the view. There are massive windows (complete front and back!) in the tubiQ, but I will think about what your wife said about the view. In the end, our wives are the real decision makers ;-).

I will try to send some building pictures later today to the administrator. Than he can post them for you on this blog.

We just finished the english versions of the technical documents. Finally, we are looking for sales agents and/or dealers for different US territories.

Cheers! Riko

I'll look forward to seeing the real thing, which I trust will be considerable different than this drawing--which may as well be a 1960's Jetson's houseboat.

I'm thinking a huge PEZ dispenser...

Gunnels & Windows on houseboats
by: Russell

Right off the top of my head I can say that a Houseboat without gunnels and not enough or not big enough windows is not going to get good reviews form an awful lot of experienced houseboaters.

I have heard many complaints about houseboats that you have to handle lines on without access to the side cleats. Incidentally, where are the side cleats? Even if it is a non-navigable "sit-at-the-dock" boat it will need secure cleats for tying up and securing the boat for storms.

Windows, yours seem to be too small and not enough of them. The best part of houseboat living is the VIEW! Sitting on the front or back deck is nice but when having dinner, working from the office or just lazing about in bed, the view is all important.

Ask any houseboater what sold them on the boat they bought. My wife walked aboard ours with it's 3 X 4 foot windows and said, "I love it, Look at that view!" The boat was sold even though the 'view" was across a canal.

Now the view is across the Caloosahatchee River, facing South, in north Fort Myers is a million dollar view! It is visable from all 5 large windows on the port side. The view out the back facing East is awesome.

Also, we really enjoy our top deck area. It is large and affords us options unsurpassed by smaller boats.It is not uncommon to have ten to twenty guests wandering about the top deck, sitting out on lawn chairs and recliners.

Radar can not be setup where it sweeps the deck. It is dangerous. Our radar sits high above the top deck area on the top of the wheelhouse. Having the radar without it being high above the heads of people is not an option.

Adding a radar arch is a must. Would you like a boat that has the radar aimed at you while you are sunbathing on the top deck? Not me, I have no urge to be micro-toast!

I am not knocking your design but rather bringing a few of my ideas to your attention. I will not be the only one looking and asking questions. Good Luck on your endeavor.
