Bespoke HouseBoat Design
FOR A MOORING YOU OWN:
We are happy to explore a new design and build from scratch to encompass everything that you had dreamed of and will offer advice of how to take advantage of all that your specific mooring location has to offer. Not simply to maximise outlook and light but an all encompassing factor assessment to include onsite access, utilities and ways to minimise the infrastructure required to site the new home.
FOR A MOORING YOU RENT:
Dependant on your landlord or committee that pass judgement on what is allowed to occupy the given mooring space we will negotiate with the relevant parties to agree your houseboat's external appearance whilst intrinsically designing the internal layouts specifically to suit your needs.
FOR A MOORING SITE WE INTRODUCE:
Before we introduce new purchasers to our found sites we usually agree the external appearance with the controlling owner. Many of these external designs have taken many attempts and consultations with the mooring owners to maximise the level of accommodation and although these may change once a buyer is on board there is only likely to small changes and is quite unlikely to increase the overall size and footprint.
OTHER FLOATING STRUCTURES / ACCOMMODATION:
Not only do we design and build fully residential houseboats we have also looked at floating home offices, personal gyms and treatment rooms as well as water sports' club houses and shower blocks. Any form of floating structure you require where we can add our proven technologies and experience we would be interested to assist with. We must remind all our clients that only main residence houseboats are currently zero rated for VAT and therefore the price of any floating structure to be used for purposes other than a prime residence will be subject to VAT (currently at 20% when going to print and subject to change)
MOORING SALES & MANAGEMENT
Whether you have 5 or 5,000 meters of lake, sea or river frontage moorings we have keen proceedable purchasers just waiting for the right opportunity for a whole host of uses.
On specific residential mooring positions, being able to link the mooring sale in with one of our purpose built Houseboats has repeatedly increased the level of income for our mooring seller partners. In most cases we can construct a joint sale with little if any cost to the mooring seller.
We can manage the letting of your mooring spaces from start to finish including all aspects from first advertising through rent collections to check-in & out inventories. Ask today how we can maximise your income and minimise your risk.
ADVICE TO MAXIMISE VALUE:
We can advise and assist with maximising the value of the mooring ready for sale including the installation of utilities and facilities opening the spectrum of sale to a wider audience and therefore increasing the market value and rate of sale. We can also advise on optimum likely outcomes of selling on a license, leasehold or freehold basis.
Call today to find out how UK Floating Homes can assist...
FULL SALES AGENCY:
We can manage your houseboat sale from start to finish using a myriad of advertising channels and decades of selling experience we strive to maximise sales value and in a time frame to suit you.
ADVERTISE WITH US:
If you are out of our area of management or would just like to put your own sales skills to the test for a one off fee of £150+VAT we offer to place your advert on our website until your boat is sold. We will also send a link to our hundreds of clients keen to buy our new build floating homes to see if yours would suit in the interim.
Ask us today if you have a house boat to sell...

Mooring evaluation planning
We at UK Floating Homes are always looking for new sites to develop floating communities whether they are to be used for holiday homes, second homes or even single one-off residences.
We are working very closely with various government bodies and major land owners to agree specifics on a number of floating developments across the country for a wide range of uses and can always look at more sites to add to our grand scheme.
If you own a lake, or some canal / river frontage that you feel would benefit the local community through increasing tourism, employment or housing supply get in contact to find out how we can help..
Delivery & Commissioning
We have brought together a fantastic team of guys and girls across three generations of experienced hauliers, crane operators, skippers and tug captains to deliver many vessels safely to their final destinations.
We take into account the latest regulations of highway and waterway's safety, security and insurance to deliver a service that advises on the safest and most practical means of collection and delivery across the UK and mainland Europe. If you need a delivery further a field, and we cannot do it ourselves we can put you in contact with someone that can.
Regarding commissioning of our vessels, we prefer to keep costs down for our clients by carrying out as much of the work in our workshop environment and therefore have a plug and play system on our vessels to fix and go on delivery.
The preparation of the site in readiness to receive your new vessel is paramount. In locations that require an amount of site adaptation whether to the access, utilities and infrastructure we can advise and assist as much as required to ensure a smooth delivery.
