Found circulating online, as captioned in the title. Somewhat obviously photoshopped, particularly with the person jumping off the diving board at the front. But it's a cool idea.

I believe the image originates from the site of Bolig Partner, a Norwegian home construction firm, which is urging people to "Realize your dream home in the New Year!"

The ship itself is a VARD Offshore Subsea Construction Vessel.


The house which was digitally placed on the ship's helipad comes from an image on the site of Ultimalt, a Norwegian paint company.
