Yacht just got an upgrade and the outcome is a combination of a seaworthy
vessel that’s also a miniature, exotic private island.
showcase all the goodies of what looks like a fully fledged private villa
complete with helipad, private elevators leading up to the penthouse that’s
perched 260 feet above sea level, a private beach club, gym, sauna,
glass-bottomed Jacuzzi, you name it and you can have it, that’s what the
company says – to the owners specifications. This ‘floating habitat’ comes with
eight engines that will propel the platform along at a speed of about 8 knots
which is just about 9 MPH. That’s not as speedy as a mega yacht, but who cares
when you have your own exotic jungle deck with palm trees, vertical gardens,
and waterfalls, right? Crew quarters have also been designed into the platform
along with other special amenities like a shark-feeding station (we have no
idea why), and an outdoor cinema.
the Migaloo says that they’re currently not producing any of these mobile
islands just yet, they are in discussions with a few people to start. The logic
is that their designs could be converted for personal/private use as well as
for commercial purposes like a floating Casino or a hotel. The price of each of
these would of course depend heavily on the level of customisation required,
but the company says that it’s possible to put these ideas into production as of
now using existing technology.
