MARTIN & TOBIAS, a Boatbuilders Family.
Last year, Martin and Tobias, two boatbuilders brothers, have completed a charming houseboat which they rent now. A family of boatbuilders ready to create a fleet ?
Indeed, last summer, with crash barriers and high-grade steel bleeder tubes, they have put together another houseboat.
“We are two brothers of a family of six siblings. We all have been raised in a village surrounded by numerous rivers and lakes, in the Brandenburg region. Since we can always remember, we have been enjoying these idyllic settings while floating on air mattresses and exploring wildlife. Now we want to make these experiences accessible to all. We decided to build a houseboat ourselves. From the choice of materials to the architecture and design, we were able to experiment and to let our ideas run free. After this first successfull experiment, we agreed that a second houseboat had to be built this year! The experience we gained on the first houseboat is now incorporated in a new design: bigger, more stable and with better facilities.
The construction of this new houseboat started in the garden of our grandparents. There, we built the basic construction of guardrails in advance. Then all pieces were assembled on the Hollandboot shipyard. Thanks to the delicious cabbage rolls and goulash our father cooked, everything went pretty fast. As you can see: Family matters 🙂 “
