With a 48-foot by 12-foot open floor plan and 7-foot-high interior ceiling, it has been designed and built as an intimate luxury loft that just happens to float. Richly appointed, it offers the best in comfort, technology, aesthetics–and portability.

Open and airy during the day with waterproof hardwood floors and double-glazed windows, at night it truly glows with sophistication thanks to maintenance-free translucent thermal aluminum walls. Inside, it’s all about the two of you.

Set the remote-control central air conditioning and heating, and put on some music. The living area includes a next-generation media center with Bang & Olufsen stereo, high-definition projector, Nintendo® WiiTM gaming console, and Sony® LCD flat-screen monitor for movies, computer, gaming, and Internet projection.

Grab a bottle of wine from the gourmet kitchen island. It features handmade cabinets, a Viking® refrigerator/freezer and dishwasher, and GaggenauTM in-cabinet oven and cooktop.Slip into something more comfortable in the spa bathroom with an Italian curved-glass vanity, touch-free faucet, and Kohler® frameless full-size shower.

The high-capacity tankless water heater and LG steam washer/dryer come in handy–as does the roomy master suite with a luxury W Hotel bed. Not that you’ll be in any hurry to get anywhere, but there are twin 60-horsepower Honda outboard engines.

And when it’s time to transport or dock, the lightweight aluminum hull and 12-foot width make it easy.One His & Hers MetroShip Luxury HouseboatPrice: $250,000.00item no. CBF11_04833Call 1.877.9NM.GIFT for details.

Designer David Ballinger commented, “The MetroShip represents 7 years of boat design and planning to utilize unique materials for a houseboat application. I wanted to incorporate the manufacturing efficiencies of our pre-fab buildings (MetroShed) into a luxury aluminum hull houseboat product. From the moment you walk on to the MetroShip you immediately forget you’re on a boat – the ceiling is high and the space is open. No other houseboat has the same feel. Light was the key factor to the MetroShip houseboat design – most houseboats have lots of windows to let light in – but the result is a very poor looking design. We use transulent thermal aluminum walls to achieve a clean linear look but most importantly a light and airy space during the day and a stunning looking boat design at night. This is certainly a product where the design has evolved from solving problems – Philippe Starck would be proud.”

The MetroShip features a unique open floor plan, more in keeping with an open loft space in Tribeca. The MetroShip modern houseboat has a media center to make most audiophiles and techies drool – from ultra high-end Cyrus Audio British stereo components to Jamo Danish in-wall speakers to the HD projector that not only acts as a High Definition movie theater, but also as an extra large computer monitor for internet and e.mails as well as an entertainment center for the kids to play Nintendo Wii games on a big screen. The unique houseboat layout has a central kitchen and bathroom that divides the living room from master bedroom – all with central air conditioning and heat – all remote controlled. The kitchen is a large 8 foot by 5 foot island with breakfast bar and top of the line appliances from Gaggenau and Viking. The bathroom is the epitome of design and functionality, from a full size shower, full size toilet and LG steam washer dryer. Even the faucet in the Italian vanity is touch-free to conserve water. The furniture is all ‘green’ – using recycled frames and remnant fabrics made by sister company, MetroSofa.

The MetroShip by Ballinger & Co. is a modern houseboat, conceived of in London and hand-made in the USA, which also happens to be offered in this years’ annual Neiman Marcus Christmas Book as one of their legendary “Fantasy Gifts” for $250,000.

A new contemporary luxury houseboat, MetroShip, launches to the public, re-inventing the houseboat with modern New York City loft style interior and modern exterior that’s never been seen before in the boating industry. MetroShed pre-fab pioneer and product designer, David Ballinger set out to buy a modern houseboat 7 years ago. Ballinger found nothing and set about asking the largest houseboat builders in America to build something for his personal use. After several years of meetings and conference calls he realized that if he was going to get a truly modern houseboat and not ‘RV of the Sea’ he would have to design and build it from scratch. The result is a modern boating masterpiece in full production just north of Atlanta, GA under the management of master boat builder, Ray Davenport.

The 48ft x 12ft modern houseboat was inspired by the open plan of NY loft spaces and has 7 foot high interior ceilings. After 7 years of design & development, the floating modern retreat is completely outfitted with the finest appliances and furnishings including a Viking and Gaggenau kitchen, Italian marble bathroom vanity with Kohler shower, a Bang & Olufsen stereo sound system, Sony LCD HD tvs , Nintendo Wii, an LG washing machine and the W Hotel bed.
