Have you ever gone sailing on a floating island? It may seem an unusual concept, but it could soon become reality. The British designers at Yacht Island Design are seeking to reinvent the pleasure cruising experience. Their luxurious "Tropical Island Paradise", an improbable compromise between a cruise ship and an island, floating somewhere between science fiction and kitsch, features little bungalows on its foredeck, palm trees dotted here and there, together with a swimming pool/lagoon fed by a waterfall which is… flowing from a volcano! In addition to the guest cabins, this 90-metre long tropical island, which can travel at a maximum speed of 15 knots, offers an owner’s suite with a spa installed right at the foot of the mountain, and four others on the flanks of the ship, complete with balconies. There is also a cinema, a fitness centre, a library, a games room, several lounges with different atmospheres, a helipad, and an unusual little beach deck which can be deployed for water sports!
