The opportunities for the super wealthy to indulge their exotic tastes seems pretty endless, from purchasing a premier league club to the finest penthouse architecture; anything is possible for your average Mr B Gates. A private mobile island, on the other hand, must be in the mind of an ideological dreamer, or is it?
A company by the name of Migaloo, not to be confused with Magaluf, is offering what is described as a “Private floating habitat based on semi-submersible platforms” The business touts its piece de resistance in the form of a floating habitat by the name of “Kokomo Island” Which sounds quite like a track from the Beach Boys, this concept man-made construction has a length of 117 meters which is approximately 383 feet long, which is spacious.
Below are illustrations in the form of a video, as you can see, it’s pretty luxurious and the amenities include the following.
- Private owners penthouse 80 M above sea level
- jungle deck (whatever this is) with palm trees and vertical gardens
- Garden deck with al-fresco outdoor dining,
- spa deck with spa and beauty saloons,
- 2 beach clubs including beach gym,
- underwater dining saloon
- (shark-feeding station (Unless your attached to your arms)
- heli deck & massive storage for tender & toys (would not need to worry if you have attempted to cuddle a shark)
The company also boasts a chance to purchase a “Private Submersible Yacht” and a video is below to convey this.
So far the company has not managed to sell any man-made islands which leads to a suspicion concerning the legitimacy of the Austrian based company with an idea so expansive as this one. The idealism of inhabiting your own pop up base would certainly appeal to large corporations who would like to register their ventures in far-flung corners of the globe which benefit from favourable tax legislation, just imagine if say Amazon’s new address was somewhere in the north Atlantic.
Whether we will see pop up islands in the future remains to be seen, as the old saying goes, I will believe it when I see it, and by this I mean in real life, not a computer simulation.
Thank you migaloo for providing us with this information.
