Våga - houseboat with engines
Photographed at Nya Varvet, Gothenburg, on 13 May 2012. See also picture #2393
Length: 13.85 m, Beam: 6.5 m, habitable space: about 50 square metres.
2 x 140 hp inboard engines driving 2 x hydraulic bow propellers and supplying 10 kW electrical power.
Said to cost about the same as a small house with a sea view. In this case you can of course change the view whenever you wish!
The Sweish word "Våga" means "Dare"; some daring individual might buy it, although it's been around for several years!
