Private man-made floating island is the perfect $6.5M gift6/26/2012
Do you love vacationing on a boat, but miss the comforts of your own private island? No problem: For a little over $6.5 million, you can have it all simultaneously with a floating, man-made "Orsos Island" from a firm in Austria (a country renowned for their tropical island paradise expertise), and manufactured in Slovakia (ditto). It doesn't have motors, but one of your other luxury vessels can tow your new island to the next location. According to the company's founder, there is already strong interest in the yet-to-be-produced faux isles, which will sleep 12 people plus your crew. Intimate yet roomy -- it's the only way to cruise, sorry, just float in the same place.
Would you buy an island if you had the cash?
