Olden days we called these boats as “Kettuvallam” which was regularly used for transporting goods & materials. Kettu means ‘tie’ and Vallam means Boat . Most interesting thing is that the boats are made up of two natural products namely Coir and Wood. Each house boats are being built using the prehistoric principles and latest Technology wherein Coir ropes are used for tightening the wooden floorboards. Then the bamboo mat is thatched over wooden hulls. The boat has comfortable Bedrooms, hygienic toilets, living room space and a kitchen where the crew prepares the mouthwatering Keraleeyan delicacy on board.
