One of the problems that have been affecting Portland city, Maine is a lack of affordable housing options, and there does not seem to be an end to that problem in sight. It now looks like one local entrepreneur might be onto an idea that isn't only unique, it is also crazy enough to work.


This man wants to use an unused and retired cruise ship by repurposing it into housing for the homeless people.

Ken Capron is the entrepreneur behind the amazing idea, and he plans to buy a very old cruise ship and then dock it in the large harbor at Portland. He also intends to allow people to live on the boat and it'd essentially create a floating neighborhood for the city. It'd do more than merely fill a gap for affordable housing and the cities wouldn't have to be concerned about locating it on dry land.

Capron has given this idea a ton of thought. Fortunately, the mayor seems open to the new idea.

“We’re looking at four populations: the homeless population, the low-income population, the workforce population and immigrant population who all need housing. They all need job skills training. We would offer that on board,” Capron said.

The cruise ship will be repurposed and split into five decks. Each deck would include at least 100 housing units and offer plenty of room.

Maybe one of the questions that need to be answered is who will pay for the cruise ship and the necessary adjustments. Capron is certain that the plan is financially feasible. In true entrepreneurial spirit, he thought of a way for people to do it with a unique option.

There are several difficulties as well as hurdles to overcome, but the entrepreneur has already applied for a grant which would move forward with an independent feasibility study.

If everything gets the green light, Capron will proceed with his plan and present it to the city.

A used cruise ship would cost from 5 to100 million dollars. Over 1000 people could fit on board, and it might be the first of many floating communities.

Although these ideas might seem crazy at first, when you consider the homelessness rate nationwide, it's one of the first realistic ideas to come out in many years. It’s not the first time that someone thought about using a boat as a form of permanent shelter but in Portland, it might just be the most well thought out option yet.


Capron is hoping his initiative will inspire other cities to consider similar housing opportunities by using retired cruise ships.



The project is called ‘Hope Harbor,’ and it might have a positive impact on the homeless population in the city of Portland.
