Discovery is a traditional kettuvalam (stitched hull) with a well-insulated aluminium-plywood superstructure. It is the only houseboat with an energy-efficient LPG engine and two silent electric motors (front and back) in Alleppey backwaters. A battery bank allows the engine and the motors to be charged during the day and is used for light and power at night. The boat itself is narrow to navigate easily through even the slimmer canals of the backwaters. The air-conditioned suite has all modern amenities which feel even more lavish, knowing that you are essentially aboard a houseboat in the middle of a nature-plugged experience.
