Recently I have fallen in love with the portfolio of Salt & Water Architecture and Yacht Design. They have a number of tiny projects in their gallery, one of which is this cool Snežnik 44′ tugboat.
The idea was to take a 1948 river tugboat and reconstruct it into a luxury river yacht to use in Europe.
Alterations to the outside of the tugboat were kept to a minimum in order to preserve its vintage flair.
The window surface size was increased however. The reason to do this was to bring more light into the interior while widening the view for the passengers.
Let’s take a look at the inside!
It’s amazing how much the interior of a tiny boat looks like the interior of a tiny house which is stationary or on wheels, isn’t it? The layout is much the same. Even though very few changes were made to the exterior, the interior was redone completely. That way it could sleep up to 4 guests. Features include a wheelhouse, a cabin, a salon and a bathroom.
The bedroom cabin looks pretty tight, but there is still some space to either side of the bed, and you can see that there is a bit of storage underneath. A skylight keeps the room from being too dark.
Folding chairs are used throughout the boat to provide convenient, collapsible seating.
Indeed, there is quite a bit of seating on this tiny vessel.
The galley is minimal but functional.
Imagine an afternoon steering this lovely vessel, surrounded by sumptuous comfort.
The bathroom appears to have an open shower design. This tiny tugboat really does have everything you need to live comfortably.
If you enjoyed these images of the Snežnik 44′, but sure to stop by Salt & Water to learn more. The project is not yet completed, but it is under construction right now.
