Friends and business partners, Erin and Harry, wanted to design something a little out of the ordinary, a fleet of boats that provide exquisite accommodation on city waters around the UK. With a brand name inspired by the infamous film Stepbrothers, Prestige Worldwide, will be an armada of floating luxury suites available for private hire, taking Airbnb by storm, of which The Vätten Hüs is the first to be launched.

Stretching the canals to their limits, the 6 berth, 70ft in length, wide beam canal boat is situated in the heart of Manchester Castlefield Locks, making it the perfect location for those visiting the city. A stone’s throw away you’ll find Manchester’s finest bars and restaurants, the city’s shopping experience and fantastic nightlife.

Erin and Harry partnered with Interior Designer Claudia Chez to create a French Art Deco inspired interior that oozes style. The cabin features gentle undulating curves, scalloped furniture and wooden adornments in muted tones over a light oak herringbone floor. The canal boat accommodates up to 6 guests in two plush king-sized bedrooms, with additional sleeping space in the main collective area. It features a large, open-plan kitchen-dining and living-room, intended for sharing and celebrating, the room is richly furnished and leads to exclusive outdoor seating on the deck, for summer nights under the city lights.

The boys also partnered up with popular, artistic local florists, Frog Manchester, for the most exquisite floral displays that are found suspended over the lavish kitchen island and adorn both bedrooms. The entire boat has been designed for well-being, comfort and ease; taking care of every detail from its precise location, minimalistic design and deluxe elements. You will even find hair appliances on board, so you don’t have to bring your own!

Now fully complete and on the water, the diary is open and ready for city centre visits. This accommodating let is suitable for long and short stays, big nights out or cosy nights in, business trips and city retreats.
