The Mobile Private Island Is the New Toy for Billionaires
The wealthiest people would be able to buy a mobile private island in the near future.
Mega yachts are now a thing of the past, as the new of a floating home features a helipad, 80 meter high penthouse suite and its own waterfall, comes to our attention.
The great minds of the Migaloo Private Submersible Yachts designers have come up with plans for a floating private island that could be easily moved anywhere in the world.
Because technology is so advanced, the mobile private island can be a thing in the near future.
One of the designs has a huge 80 meter high penthouse suite, waterfalls, a helipad and even a dock for a yacht.
This portable island has been designed specifically for the billionaires. Why is that you may ask?
Let’s say you are a billionaire and you need to get from point A to point B, A being your home and B being your private island you use for vacation.
Here is where this mobile island comes in handy. To avoid the inconvenience of having to sail and dock your yacht as you travel from one luxury island to another and instead you could demand the island to come to you.
The people who built this floating private island came up with plans to move it anywhere in the world.
That should allow the owners to simply weigh anchor and move their entire luxury resort whenever poor weather or other things would inconvenience their enjoyment.
Owners of the island will be treated to 360-degree views within the penthouse, which can be accessed by an 80-metre elevator.
Around the complex, residents will find all the amenities that they would expect on a land-based tropical getaway, including a spa, gym, beauty salons, bar and a pool.
The inclusion of vertical gardens, palm trees and even a shark-feeding station add more natural elements to the nautical island.
Based on proven technology that Migaloo has available, the company says the moveable paradise – known as Kokomo Ailand – would also be perfect for a high-class hotel, company headquarters or casino.
Or the island could be used for commercial purposes, the company have included space for crew members to live, as well as a helipad for easy access.
All islands built by Migaloo will be tailor-made to their client’s needs, the company said.
Christian Gumpold, managing director of Migaloo, said: ‘The response has been amazing – all of our clients love the idea.
‘We are currently negotiating with several clients who are very interested in the project. We developed an initial design concept to show our ideas and the main design direction,’ he added.
‘Our design team needed some months for this, but the actual details in the design – depending on the client’s wishes – will be a much longer and intense process. This is common in the yachting industry,’ he went on to say.
Mr Gumpold says that he expects living at sea to be huge trend in the future, adding that floating islands could be the perfect first step towards society adapting to this new way of living.
