After constructing man-made islands, the Emiratis have upped their game by making residential properties float. Constructed by Holland-based engineers, the Waterlovt are a set of houseboats with state-of-the-art facilities.

Perfect abodes for a family getaway, the houses are designed and created on request-only basis. Featuring ultraadvanced installations and futuristic technology, the houses are crafted in quality wood and steel, with floor-to-ceiling glass walls. They come in rectangular shapes with smart centralised airconditioning.

The two and four-bedroom apartments demonstrate tailor-made interiors, each catering to the needs of the owner. The basic layout features custom-made carpeted and wooden flooring with cooling and heating features as per the weather. Wooden furniture is covered in plush upholstery while white steel columns support the ceiling. The bedrooms, set in the centre of the house, offer a stunning view of the sea.

The upper part (terrace) of the boat house features a roll-out of solar panels which transmit electricity to the entire house. It also features whispering generators, battery backup and ensures that the house is functional at all times.The Dutch engineers have made sure they use natural resources, however, the water is desalinated, making it palatable for the occupants.

The houseboat also features a home theatre system, Harman Kardon audio systems and an open patio. Only 20 houses have been built so far. Waterlovt houseboats vary in prices based on the features requested by the owner .
