Text from Teknokat Marine:
tubiQ is a modular concept that combines the dynamics and elegance of a boat with a refined living area on at least two levels. A tubiQ is made up of various interchangeable modules which can be fitted and connected to each other in many different ways. Within limits the tubiQ can be designed in full by the customer (length, height, interior design and the number and sizes of the rooms).
tubiQ: design your floating life!
On demand the tubiQ can be equipped with state of the art electric engines and solar panels. This, combined with a water system that represents the finest level of liquid filtration, makes the tubiQ totally self supporting. tubiQ makes it possible to $enjoy your floating life anywhere you wish.
tubiQ is designed by Marcello Ligabue with Daniele Gibertoni, produced by Teknokat Marine S.r.l. and will be on sale from autumn 2009 in two basic versions: tubiQ48 (one deck) and the tubiQ59 (two decks). The tubiQs can be delivered fully furnished or casco with a price that varies from 240.000 € to 590.000 € ex VAT.

Nice houseboat, nothing radical about style unless it offers:
Space for canoes, kayaks, Seadoos, camping gear
Solar array for power.
Group Use shower.
Recycle water for cooking & showers.
Hi Tech Helm module.
Sail to be pire wind driven IF windy for sail use
this is soooooo neat.
who the hell would want a wii on a houseboat. I'd have a better use for the energy on my boat
Cool boat design.
As a mechanical designer I, interested in all things boat, I appreciaste the 3-D solidmodeling endeavor.
Very simple and functional lines.
Yeah, Wii does not excite me either…
All the best,
