Friends and business associates, Erin and Harry, wanted to create something out of the ordinary, a fleet of boats that would offer exquisite accommodations on urban waters across the UK. With a brand name inspired by the infamous film Stepbrothers, Prestige Worldwide will be an armada of floating luxury suites that can be rented privately and are taking Airbnb by storm, with The Vätten Hüs being the first to be launched.
The wide 70-foot, 6-berth, canal boat that stretches the canals to their limits is located in the heart of Manchester Castlefield Locks, making it the perfect location for anyone visiting the city. Manchester’s best bars and restaurants, the city’s shopping and nightlife are just a stone’s throw away.
Erin and Harry teamed up with interior designer Claudia Chez to create an interior inspired by French Art Deco that exudes style. The cabin features smooth, sinuous curves, scalloped furniture, and wood trim in muted tones over a light oak herringbone floor. The canal boat can accommodate up to 6 guests in two luxurious king-size bedrooms with additional sleeping space in the main collective area. It has a large open plan eat-in kitchen ideal for sharing and partying, the space is richly furnished and leads to exclusive outdoor seating on the deck for summer nights under the city lights.
The boys have also partnered with popular, artistic local florist Frog Manchester to create the most exquisite floral arrangements that hang over the lavish kitchen island that adorn both bedrooms. The entire boat is designed for well-being, comfort and lightness; takes care of every detail through its precise location, minimalist design and deluxe elements. You can even find hair tools on board so you don’t have to bring your own!
Now the diary is complete and open on the water, ready for visits to the city center. This cozy apartment is suitable for long and short stays, big nights or cozy nights, business trips and city trips.
