Billy Walden loves to make and fix things. An 18-year-old boy from Lancaster (UK) decided to renovate his old Volkswagen camper. The guy has golden hands after the old camper, he took up the old rusty boat. In just two months, he turned it into an amazing houseboat for his family’s vacation!


The guy bought the barge for just £5,000. He decided to turn an old boat into a dream houseboat using his thoughts and imagination.
“I love bringing my ideas to life. It’s so great when you can do whatever your heart desires, – says Billy

The price of such a boat is usually about £12,000. But Belli managed to buy it cheaper since it was in a non-operating state. He spent another £2,800 on repairs of the inside of the boat.


Hard work did not frighten the guy. He had to remove all the partitions to open up more space. To rebuild the frame, he used a wooden beam and a metal profile.

Peren created the kitchen and dining area with his own hands. In this case, only natural materials and wooden furniture were used. Billy installed glass doors leading from the interior area to the deck.


Now the boat has rooms for each member of the family, a bathroom and other amenities.

Mom and sister Billy took care of the arrangement of bedrooms. And the deck itself has become a real oasis where the family can relax and enjoy the indescribably beautiful view.


The rusty boat has turned into a floating “dacha” for summer holidays. “We love to travel on our amazing boat. We’ve covered a few hundred miles already,” said Billy.
