Rock the Boat: Boats, Cabins and Homes on the Water
Publisher: Gestalten 2017 ISBN: 9783899559163 Format: Hardcover, 272pp, 260x210mm
Rock the Boat is a celebration of a life afloat. For those who crave open skies and endless horizons, relocating to a home on the water inspires a new sense of freedom. While boats were once regarded as status symbols and luxury items, these floating abodes have become part of a new outdoor culture.
From a historic narrowboat with shabby chic interiors to a barge transformed into a comfortable family home, these vessels represent the best in waterborne cabin culture. More than showcasing an aquatic trend, Rock the Boat documents new nautical lifestyles.
This book invites you on a journey across rivers, oceans, and canals to meet the audacious people swimming against the current. Their ingenuity knows no bounds as they cosy up in self-built rafts in Finland, move into houseboats in Amsterdam, or explore floating guesthouses in Kashmir. All aboard!
