Our History

Despite being a young and innovative company, the history of The Homeboat Company began in 1975 in the city of Buenos Aires, capital of Argentina, with the birth of its founder, Rodrigo Rubin.

Rodrigo, son of merchant parents, with a strong personality and a mind dedicated to human beings and nature, was always an enterprising and adventurous person, which led him to travel the world in search of new challenges from a very young age.

After traveling and living in different countries, it was during a brief stay in Amsterdam that the concept of Homeboat Village emerged.

Always looking for new life experiences, Rodrigo usually stayed in boats moored in marinas, as a way to have comfort, privacy, escape from the urban environment in just one step and, mainly, to be in contact with water and the environment.

The problem was that the boats usually have tight spaces and the roof is very low, in addition to balancing a lot. Another problem is that many times the neighbors are just empty boats waiting for their owners, generating a very insulating environment.

As an alternative to these uncomfortable, he came up with the idea of developing a boat-house model, with an improved center of gravity (catamaran), with rooms above the water level, more space and comfort, specific for travelers.

Beyond constituting the ship model, the great differential has been the location of one more unit side by side, generating the Village concept, where people can enjoy an aquatic experience in community.

The proposal that began in 2016 with 5 boats in a marina in Sardinia, Italy, soon spread. So under the Houseboat Sardinia brand it reached 23 boats at the end of 2018.

With the aim of contributing to the environment and the well-being of people, life experiences on water, and offering a new solution for tourism, urban and population growth, in January 2019, the small business that was born in Sardinia arrives to a new phase, becoming The Homeboat Company.

A young, innovative project that offers alternatives for lodging and profit, generating experiences with added value for investors and tourists, transforming the concept of tourism and accommodation with an innovative, profitable and responsible proposal with the environment and people.
