Le Koroc: the ultimate fisherman’s houseboat
By Linh Vo
If you’re a fisherman, you probably recognize the feeling of just not wanting to get off the water when time tells you to end your fishing trip. Well, from now on you don’t have to anymore. Owners of a ‘Le Koroc’ houseboat can stay on the water 24/7 and still enjoy a home cooked meal and a good night rest. Want to move to a new fishing water? Just hook your floating fishing home up to a medium sized trailer and off you go!

'Le Koroc' is built by Daigno, a company located in Quebec, Canada. Recently, the company successfully launched this ultimate fishing houseboat. According to the company this driving houseboat is best described as “a unique and refined craft for nature lovers and fishing aficionados.” For those anglers who can’t stop exploring the rest of the world, this driving houseboat will be of significant added value when getting away from the city's daily routine and stress.

Fishing and Holiday series
Daigno offers two types of this driving houseboat: the Fishing Series and the Holiday Series. The houseboat's size measures 24 feet long and 8 feet wide, with a price around $60,000. This includes all basics, such as a kitchen area, fridge and of course, a cupboard. Furthermore, the cabin also provides a bathroom with standing shower and a bed which is formed from an extendable dining table.

If you have more guests, and probably you will, more beds can be transformed from two benches on either side of the cabin. Laminated white cedar beams and ultralight plywood are used as main material for the wooden cabin. Daigno also painted the metal roofing and aluminum windows and even the patio door.

Fish from your terrace
One of the most amazing parts of Le Koroc is the front deck of the boat. There is a dining table for two people, a barbecue and even a fish tank. A 265 watt solar panel is installed to provide energy for the whole houseboat. To meet customer’s expectation and desire, Daigno can customize each houseboat, but the total weight will never exceed 5,000 pounds. What a light weight floating home!
A home away from home for any traveler who wants to feel at home while floating in the middle of the lake with a beer in one hand, a fishing rod in the other and the catch of the day on the BBQ.
