The concept of a floating island is not new, but people from Yacht Island Design Ltd pushes boundaries when it comes to this luxurious toys for billionaires. Their project Utopia is the perfect concept of a luxury yacht – a combination of a true tropical island and luxury that a yacht can offer. Utopia is not an object to travel in, it is a place to be, an island established for anyone who has the vision to create such a place. Measuring 100m in length and breadth, and spanning over 11 decks with the equivalent volume of a present-day cruise liner there is enough space to create an entire micronation.
Utopia is able to adapt to various environments while maintaining guest comfort. With the deployable glass canopy panels covering the interior decks, full climate control is possible, despite the geographical location and outside conditions. The interior features a retail district, theatre, culinary zone containing an eclectic mix of restaurants and an entertainment zone featuring bars, nightclubs and a casino.
There’s an observatory deck with breath taking 360 degree views at a height of 65m above sea level. Four helicopter pads provide access to the island via air, and wet docks house boats and jet skis for recreational use.
Although still in the concept phase, the British company is moving forward, offering several luxury yacht island design concepts.
