Here’s the Mobile Private Island With Shark Feeding, Waterfalls and So Much More...
Introducing the moving luxury island you can sail into the sun...
Sometimes when you’re rich, just having your own private island isn’t quite enough. it’s alright, yeah, but what if it starts to rain? Are you just meant to sit there and get wet? Oh no no no, you’re too rich for that. What you need is a private island... which you can control.
Okay, so you may not be able to actually control the weather on the ‘Kokomo Ailand’ either, a mobile private island developed by Migaloo Private Submarines, a company who sell “sumbersimble superyachts and floating islands", but you can drive your private island out into the ocean, away from the rain and find some unclouded waters.
According to Migaloo, Kokomo Ailand is “a private floating habitat based on existing semi-submersible platforms." It features “bespoke luxury and design, incomparable features and entertainment, state of the art megayacht amenities and the flair of an exotic island."
So, what kind of ‘incomparable features’ are we talking? Well, the ‘owner’s penthouse’, sitting 80m above sea level, boasts two private elevators (which is weird), a Jacuzzi with a glass bottom (also weird), a private owners beach club (okay, that’s awesome), and a private beach gym. Not too shabby eh?
The ‘jungle deck’ is kitted out with, wait for it, A FREAKIN’ WATERFALL, pouring into a pool, a cocktail bar, palm trees, vertical gardens, whatever the hell they are, and some serious lounging room. We’re also told that you'll be sheltered not only by the exotic plants in the jungle deck, but also the exotic wildlife, so perhaps a few parrots come free with the deal.
The spa deck is where you get your gym, massages and beauty therapy, while your seriously relaxing and outdoor dining are scheduled in for the glamorous garden deck. It really does make you hate rich people once you breath it all in and then look up at your 2x2 living room.
But that’s not all. The beach deck features an ‘entertainment pool’ with a bar and barbeque area. We’re not sure what an entertainment pool is, but as long as it’s not a weird sex thing, we want in. And even then we’d still consider it.
The VIP and guest areas are kitted out with infinity pools and provide prime locations for watching the wildlife at sea, and of course, there’s a helipad, because if you’re swag enough to be buying somewhere like this, you’re far, far too cool for a speed boat.
Moving onwards, guess what's in the legs of the Kokomo Ailand? Boats. There are boats that come out of the structure. “Large limo tenders and submarines" to be exact. There’s also “mesmerizing night illumination" which is rad, but we’re sure you’ve got that all kitted out around your flat or house anyway. Pretty standard stuff, really.
On top of that, it’s just the outdoor cinema, stage, dancefloor, “underwater elevator for SHARK FEEDING", and underwater dining saloon left to mention. All in all, if this isn’t the perfect hideout for an epic Bond villain, we don’t know what is.
Given, the team behind the design haven’t actually built one of these things yet, but we kind of hope some horrible, filthy-rich guy does get around to commissioning one for what we can only assume will be an inconceivable amount of money.
Until then, we’ll close our eyes and imagine. Though even that's hard to do thanks to the persistent, never-ending rage of the noisy neighbour in the flat below. Sigh.
