This is probably one of the coolest things I have ever read about. The world is a ship serving as a residential community owned by its inhabitants. Residents live on board as the ship slowly circumnavigates the globe.
Such a residence costs a pretty penny. “As of 2010, a 328 sq ft (30.5 m2) studio (Ocean Studio 661) has a list price of USD $600,000. Ocean Residence 1006 (2 bedroom, 2.5 bath) list price USD $2,950,000. The World Suite 1108/1110 list price USD $13,500,000.Monthly homeowner dues range from $20,000 per month (for the smaller units) and up, and cover fuel, crew, maintenance and a meal allowance for the owner.”
If I ever retire with a couple of mill, I am doing this. Pray for me.
