$6.5 Million Man-Made Floating Island

Own your personal island, deck it anywhere. An Austrian firm has discovered a man-made floating island known as ‘Orsos Island’ fixed with two small diesel engines having an oval-shape. The island is designed to merge the quality of a yacht with the comfort of a house. It is a super luxurious vessel spread over 1,000 square meters including six bedrooms.

Orsos is a dream project of Hungarian-born entrepreneur Gabor Orsos – a former hotelier. It has a large games room along with underwater karaoke suite. The island is loaded with numerous ocean-bound comforts like Jacuzzi, barbecue, sun loungers, minibar, stately dining room and aquarium. It is priced $6.5 million below the average cost of the Giga yachts and Caribbean islands.

This floating island is 37 meters long having very small diesel engines capacity only for short journeys. However, owners can use a towboat or cargo ship for long haul moves. Orsos is environmental-friendly incorporating 160 square meters of solar panels on the roof and wind generators that can generate 28-30 kWh of power. The island can desalinate 12,000 liters of seawater by using ‘reverse osmosis’ for drinking purposes.

Orsos Island’s head of communications, Elizabeth Recsy said: “We have several preorders and we will start building the islands early next year in our facilities in central Europe.”
