The trend for houseboats is growing in popularity worldwide, with an increasing number of manufacturers appearing. While Europe is experiencing a boom in houseboats, Russia is just starting to realise the advantages of houseboats over yachts. The Baikal Yachts Group recognised the potential of the market several years ago, and their designers and constructors decided to launch superhouseboats that are an affordable yet luxurious option for Russian buyers.
What Makes Superhouseboats Different?
Superhouseboats offer increased comfort for the owner, better seaworthiness and can be used all year round. Unlike ordinary houseboats that are designed for rivers only, superhouseboats have a marine class and can go to sea. The catamaran-type hull makes them 1.5 times wider than American and European houseboats and yachts, which makes them more stable during waves. The new Baikal 18R and Baikal 18S models accommodate up to six cabins, depending on the client’s preferences.
Yacht owners are beginning to prefer houseboats because they offer more comfort and silence, without the vibrations and high fuel consumption of yachts. Baikal Yachts Group only offers steel hulls for the Russian yacht market, which allows for living on the water even in winter. The owner of a superhouseboat has a living area of over 105 sq.m. all year round with a full set of household appliances, furniture, beds, wardrobes, air conditioners, heaters, sofas, kitchen, washing machine and dishwasher, two diesel engines. Baikal Yachts Group provides a full 3-year guarantee for everything, including the hull, components, and interior.
Superhouseboats: Travel Without Leaving Your Home!
The superhouseboat project enables people to travel without leaving their homes, and this concept reflects Baikal’s motto – Travel without leaving your home! Superhouseboats are also designed to be accessible to people with disabilities, with enlarged passages, lowered platforms, retractable wide ladders from the stern and bow, side passages, and special hydraulics for climbing to the flybridge. The layouts of superhouseboats have been developed taking into account the owners’ experience of travelling and relaxing with friends and family.
The Advantages of Superhouseboats
Superhouseboats offer versatility and convenience for travel and recreation on rivers and in coastal waters. They are a luxurious yet affordable option for buyers who value their time and comfort. Superhouseboats are like family apartments on water that offer multi-day crossings in the summer and a winter cottage outside the city. The Baikal Yachts Group is leading the way in this exciting new market, creating innovative, comfortable, and practical superhouseboats for the discerning buyer.
