Episode 3 - Giant Historic Ship

Valentin Martin and Daria Cabai run their own naval architecture company in London. They are passionate about sailing and living on the water. Their dream is to escape their cramped city apartment with their young son, Yves to live on the Thames in their own floating home. They want to moor it right in the heart of the capital under the iconic Tower Bridge. 

They create their own design converting a century old barge into a three tiered contemporary floating apartment. The commission is given to a specialist boat building company, SRF, in Netherlands – the world-renown country for living on waterways.

The biggest challenge is moving Valentin and Daria’s finished new home back to London. The renovated barge must travel a colossal 290 miles across the North Sea - one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world.  After a hair-raising journey they finally make it to England and their eye catching floating apartment becomes a new attraction next to Tower Bridge.
