The purpose of this project is to design and mass-produce kits for a floating tiny house that can sail. It combines high-tech modeling and fabrication and low-tech assembly that can be carried out DIY-style on a riverbank or a beach. This boat is a 3-bedroom with a kitchen, a sauna and a dining room. The deck is big enough to throw dance parties. It can be used as a river boat, a canal boat or even a beach house. Oh, and it's rugged and stable enough to take out on the ocean. Kits will start at around $50k (USD). The design has been tested in simulation and prototype; full-scale production will begin next year.

QUIDNON is featured in this month's MAIB!

A write-up on Quidnon has been published in Bob Hicks' venerable publication, Messing About in Boats. Enjoy.

  1. I was out in my backyard today, building a tent pavilion out of a decommissioned parachute I picked up at an ArmyNavy surplus store for $70, when the wind picked up and pulled me around the post till I let go. Then I thought, "hey, I could make a decent sail out of this cloth!" Since the parachutes mostly lay flat, and are usually round, what would actually need to be done to make Quidnon's sails out of a decommissioned parachute or two? And if we could do this, would it save enough money to be worth the effort?
