Water, air and the faraway Horizon: a never-ending journey!

Patriarche. and naval architect CLYD were jointly responsible for this concept. Patriarche actively pursues R&D and encourages collaborative working processes that favor the emergence of new ideas and partnership opportunities. CLYD, Cano Lanza Yacht Design, is a naval architecture firm with an engineering department located in Arcachon. Its founder, renowned naval architect Exequiel Cano Lanza, has been the creative force behind COUACH Shipyard Yachts and Marine lines since 1995. Created in 2010, CLYD works with its clients throughout the entire design process, beginning with the idea for a vessel. The collaborative spirit common to both Patriarche. and CLYD were key in their joining forces to co-create the Maison Flottante project.

As traditional land-based dwellings have evolved to offer a greater degree of flexibility and comfort, so must their counterparts on the water.The classic layout of a houseboat or a narrow ship cabin is no longer enough. A new concept, this Floating Home feels like a constant journey. It offers both the flexibility and adaptability needed by families with ties onland and «smart» features linked to the water and navigation. The comfortable top floor is built on piles and the open ground floor can accommodate a garden or deck.
