What would you buy if you had £1 million burning your pocket? Investing in real estate is always a good idea, but what about a houseboat? Well, we have the most amazing of its kind to show you: the houseboat “Ocean”, considered by the famous real estate agents at Foxtons the most expensive houseboat it has ever sailed the seas. With three en-suite bedrooms and its own swimming pool, besides a study and the spectacular views that come with this moving home, you have to be ready to pay good money for something like this. In this case, we are talking about exactly £1 million!

According to an article published by the newspaper The Guardian, the boat is 1,388 square foot and has a modern open plan kitchen and even a roll top bath in one of its bathrooms. Making the math, the price works out at around £720 per square foot, but that doesn’t include the swimming pool and the terrace.

The houseboat current owners bought “Ocean” in France and then sailed the vessel back to the United Kingdom, but after several years living on the water, they decided it was time for a change. So now the boat is waiting for the new owners at the Cadogan Pier, by the Albert Bridge in Chelsea. Already thinking about how long you would last in the sea? Maybe that’s not necessary, since we have other options: besides this houseboat, our latest infographic includes seven amazing properties that can be a good reason to spend your extra million.

How about a new castle or your very own island? Or even maybe a lovely apartment in one of the most expensive neighborhoods in the world, in London’s Mayfair area? We have lots of good ideas, you just need to get the money.
