Hi, what are you looking for?



Own Your Personal Solar-Powered Floating Island Home

Have enough money and you can do just about anything these days, including buy your very own solar-powered transportable floating island. The luxury Orsos Island is pretty much a floating home resort and designed to “combine all the positive aspects of mainland real estate and luxury yachts.”

Designed for personal use or for the hotel industry, it doesn’t matter, just as long as you have upwards of $4.6 million. Coming in at just over 20 metres wide (65+ ft.) and more than 37 metres in length (121+ ft.), the Orsos Islands have enough accommodation to comfortably house 12 guests.

It is completely sustainable (except for food and drinking water) with recycled water, solar power, and a noiseless wind energy system. It also takes heat from the sea water around you and converts it into power to run the heating and air conditioning. Everything is controlled by an intelligent computer system that monitors the entire process.

If you are one of the lucky few who have a spare $5 million or so to spend, head on over to the Orsos Islands website, where you can find out everything you could ever need to know about your future floating island away from home.

Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
