H2O Design: innovation in the world of houseboats

A passion for style and design has enabled us to reinterpret the world of houseboats.

Established in July 2022 by the startup HBS DESIGN Srls, the company has invested specifically in development and design for efficient large-scale production.

Considerable business interest has been generated with the production of the initial boats, which are currently moored at Verbella marina on Lake Maggiore, Stintino marina in Sardinia, in addition to Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore.

Luxury modular houseboats
100% made in Italy

We have launched a large range of luxurious stylish boats on the market that are made in Italy, featuring accommodation and commercial modules.

This enables customers to run a highly profitable, scalable business, and their guests to enjoy an exclusive experience just a stone’s throw from the water, thanks to stunning panoramic windows.

The Made in Italy label also has intrinsic value relating to craft expertise, attention to detail, and an abundance of passion in particular. We provide houseboats that are innovative in all aspects, and are made with quality sustainable materials that set us apart from our competitors.
