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 50ft 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.

We have also completed RiverPods for our customers and they moored on The Thames, The Solent Southampton 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
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
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
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.
