At the RiverPod company our team have just bespoke built a new concept of floating home - a RiverPod designed to look like a barge but with all the cost saving and environmentally friendly advantages of owning a RiverPod! This is an amazing achievement by our very talented team.
We are currently building a new and innovative project that incorporates our unique floatation system but will look like a traditional barge, we look forward to updating our website with new photos soon
Our RiverPods have appeared More 4's series, My Floating Home!
Our River Pods Houseboats were born through thinking green! Each River Pod is bespoke built for comfortable, green, low cost living and at a very affordable price. Our show River Pod has one bedroom, fully fitted kitchen and shower room, complete with a lounge dining area and can accommodate 2-4 people, although we are able to build to any size up to 44 x 12ft and include 2 or even 3 bedrooms, depending on your budget and we are always happy to discuss your ideas and plans.
Our RiverPods can also incorporate a front and rear decking area so you can be at one with the outside.
The RiverPods have recycled all round insulation, this includes 100mm in the floor, 100mm in the walls and 100mm in the ceiling! Our RiverPods also have heat retaining double glazed windows and doors - They are fully insulated, keeping you cosy in the winter months and cool in the summer months! We can even offer an option of underfloor heating.
We have built in a unique Klagester system that has been integrated into our also unique, licensed floating system, so the dirty water is treated and sanitised before then going back into the river.
Our unique floating system is made from HDPE, which is lightweight yet super-strong. It is recycled and super buoyant. It comes with a 125 year guarantee. Oxygen, salt and water have no effect on HDPE, it is not affected by the ravages of time. It does not need to be painted, or anti-fouled. Our floatation system will never need to be removed from the water for maintenance or cleaning, unlike all other boat hulls. Simply put: HDPE offers zero corrosion, zero maintenance
The exterior of our River Pods can be clad in various materials from natural cedar wood to composite wood effect panels and profile cladding. All come in a choice of colour finish
Every River Pod houseboat is built in the UK and is unique, no two will ever look identical!
We provide houseboats for sale in London, houseboats for sale in Kent and houseboats for sale across the UK.
Passionate about quality of life, passionate about the environment!

Our RiverPods are low cost and eco-friendly and complete with our unique floatation system and built in the UK. Their pioneering floatation system allows the RiverPods to remain in the water, there's no need to anti-foul or remove from the water for cleaning
All our building products have been sourced from either resourceful substances or recycled materials where possible.

This concept has been 2 years in the making and during the journey I personally have become more passionate about the greener lifestyle and how we can all do our bit!
The RiverPods are able to give the best sense of freedom, with an incredibly low cost and eco-friendly living possible.
We have also completed RiverPods for our customers and they are moored on The Thames, The Hamble and The Medway *Here comes the really green bit, our unique River Pods will come fully fitted and furnished if required, from just £68,000
We could not be happier with our new Riverpod and look forward to spending many nights relaxing on the river in her.
The whole experience from start to finish was amazing and nothing was too much trouble for Richard and his team.
Cheers to the first of our many pods!

We describe our RiverPod as "luxury on the River"! It offers us a unique experience and ensures us with warmth and peace. We choose the underfloor heating option, which give us all year round complete comfort.

It's an exciting and daunting challenge setting up a new home especially when we were looking for something a little different! It was therefore very fortunate that we found the Riverpod company as not only did they provide the "different" but Richard, Mick and the team worked with us to help design what we wanted / needed in a friendly and professional (non salesy) way. The finished Pod has been better in terms of fixtures, fit and finish than we hoped. Now you would expect a review on here to be positive but for us one of the key questions would be: if the need arose for us to do it again would we have another Riverpod? The answer is yes.
Mr and Mrs Hempstead
I am over the moon with my RiverPod and the new way of life I am now leading. Also, I was really pleased with the design, build and customer service that the RiverPod Company provided me. I am enjoying entertaining friends and family onboard my new and unique home. Many thanks to all the great team at The RiverPod Company for their excellent service.
Mr P Gonzalez
My RiverPod has given me a fantastic new and relaxed way of life, better than I even dreamed of. I love my unique living space and was very happy with the professional and helpful service I received from the RiverPod Company throughout the entire build and afterwards. I would highly recommend this way of living and The RiverPod Company.

Mr J Field
I would just like to say, thank you for my beautiful home, it has been an absolute delight working with you and your team at River Pod. Also, the pod is just what you said it would be, warm and cosy and cheap to run! I've lived on all sorts of boats over the years, but without doubt my River Pod is the best. A big thank you to you and all your team.
PS. Keep up the good work!
Mr L Kent
I have had the total good fortune to come across the Riverpod Company, whose professional work, i.e. the designing, building, and total commitment to provide an exciting, thoughtful and sustainable home for each client and their individual means, has been life changing for me. Richard, Mick and the team have been considerate, interested, warm, friendly and informative along every stage of the build and have been available to answer any queries that I have had which i have greatly appreciated. Also I must give special thanks to the guys transporting and craning my pod into the right position to allow it finally to be set free, they were truly fantastic, clearly very experienced, patient and full of humour.
Ms A Harvey
We are so pleased with our RiverPod! It is a lovely retreat on the river. It has all the space we need and is flooded with light. We have wonderful views from the porthole windows across the river and with a balcony at each end, we can enjoy the sunshine all day! Richard and his team are so professional and have given us exactly what we wanted and more. We are looking forward to spending lots of relaxing times on our uniquely designed holiday home.
