Tropical island paradise – The floating Island

Gone are the days when the rich would go and rent islands during holidays. People with deep pockets can now rent islands that float around and have propellers. The Tropical Island Paradise by Yacht Island Designs is a floating jungle boat that comes with a tropical beach paradise on its upper deck. Other than the guest cabanas, bars and outdoor dining options, the yacht also features a swimming pool that is fed by a waterfall seen running down from a volcanic mountain atop the deck. Beautiful indeed!

Ikkar yacht changes its shape according to the location

Julien Anglade is a French designer who has come up with this hybrid yacht concept that can transform into a larger vessel while at sea. At 150m, the IKKAR can accommodate 50 passengers in ultimate luxury as well as a crew of 60 people to look after them. This hybrid yacht can change its shape according to the location as well as the comfort of the passengers. When anchored offshore, the sides of its hull open at the waterline to create a massive entertainment space. It gradually falls back when the vessel is floating at a low speed. The yacht comes equipped with solar sails, making it eco friendly as well.

The boat can fly 600km when transformed into a plane.
