With our propulsion system, you can forget about charging stations. You can sail freely, thanks to an internal generator that produces energy and recharges the batteries. With this technology, the boat can sail up to 8 hours straight, without ever completely losing charge.

If you choose a houseboat with an electric motor, you’re demonstrating your particular sensitivity towards the environment and nature. You’ll be do your part to help reduce pollution and safeguard the delicate natural environment. You won’t disturb the wildlife that inhabits the river and lagoons, and you’ll consume less fuel.

A development of the Minuetto 8 model, it replicates its spaces and comfort. The boat has 2 bow cabins and 2 stern ones, with a central dining room ensuring good privacy levels. It’s the perfect set up for 2 families of 4, or a group of friends.

This innovative Houseboat model can comfortably accommodate 8 people in the bedrooms. 2 more people can find space in the large convertible dinette. Only 2 cabins have the option to choose between a double bed or 2 singles.

The beds are all at least 2 meters long, and come with sheets, pillows, duvet and bath towels. In the cabin there are charging sockets and USB ports (always active). There are 3 bathrooms in total; the one at the bow has a shower in a separate room. Each bathroom has a sink with hot and cold water, an electric toilet, and a shower.

The central room has a large table (which could become a bed if needed) and comfortable sofas around it. The kitchen is modern and bright, equipped with an electric hob, a huge refrigerator, microwave oven, and sink. Crockery and tea towels are provided.

The upper deck, or flybridge, can be reached from the dining room via a staircase. Once up there, you can enjoy a global panoramic view. Here, there’s a table with seats around it, ideal for having lunch while sailing or dining while admiring the sunset.

You’ll spend most of your time on the flybridge; for this reason, it’s covered by a large awning that protects you from the sun and rain. The panoramic driving position guarantees maximum visibility during navigation and maneuvers.

This boat also offers 2 large sundecks that can be used with beach towels.

The electric motor runs silently and the boat drives like any other boat. On board there is a large current generator that powers all systems, including kitchen appliances and all onboard electrical sockets.

When moored in ports, the boat can be connected to the electricity network using a cable supplied. You can connect your smartphone to the Wi-FI radio so you can listen to your music both inside and on the upper deck.

The yacht is equipped with lateral thrust propellers front and back, controlled by a joystick located on the flybridge. This system guarantees great ease of operation and is highly appreciated. To ensure maximum safety during navigation, we have equipped the yacht with an echo sounder to check the depth of the river and a satellite remote monitoring system, enabling us to guarantee maximum assistance.

A powerful hot or cold air production system is present on board, similar to systems found in our homes. This is powered by the electrical connection in the port; it therefore cannot be used when you are outside the port. The system produces hot or cold air, as desired, for the cabins and living area.

We suggest turning off the system if you are not on board, or if it is not needed, as it cannot be left on constantly.
