Floating islands: when a mega-yacht just won't do

The Streets of Monaco - $50 million floating island

21 November 2012

Islands and yachts may have been the “it” destination for high-end

tourists for years, but no more. The newest thing for the wealthy

vacationer is a combination yacht and island: your own floating,

move-able island. Floating islands have been in the works since people

first imagined exploring the ocean, but technology is finally making

that a reality. Yacht Island Designs provides vacation-goers with a $50

million floating island that can be customized to look like a tropical

paradise or the streets of Monaco – complete with small castle or fake

volcano as you see fit.
