If you’ve ever fancied owning a holiday lodge and also yearn for the floating leisure lifestyle, you can now have both. The launch (literally) of the Floating Lodge Company makes that possible.
The Floating Lodge Company is a collaboration between Pathfinder Homes, Devizes Marina, and Lynx Lodges. Pathfinder has devised four standard models for the floating lodge range, all of them luxuriously appointed. Buyers can specify their own interior design, as they can with Pathfinder homes for land use. The homes are built through the same manufacturing process as other Pathfinder homes, with a few modifications to specification. They are then transported to the marina at Devizes and craned onto their own private pontoon. The construction of the pontoons on which the lodges will sit is a foam-filled system with a hot-dipped galvanized frame. It uses UV stabile black polyethylene, filled with expanded foam.
The cedar-clad Marine View is available in three sizes. The choice is 33ft x 13ft, 40ft x 13ft and 50ft x 14ft. Each has a large living area, a large double bedroom, a shower room and a kitchen-lounge-dining area with a four-seater breakfast bar. Kitchen equipment includes a Belfast sink, plus a washing machine and microwave in addition to a full cooker. Worktops are oak. Portholes are a feature of this lodge. It comes complete with a log burner stove,
