Sail-World.com : Yacht Island Designs creates 'Project Utopia' the floating city

Yacht Island Designs creates 'Project Utopia' the floating city

'Project Utopia - designs based on oil rig technology.'    . ©

Here's the ideal island getaway that can take you anywhere you want to go.

At the recent Monaco Yacht Show, Yacht Island Design revealed its blueprint for a futuristic floating island featuring helipads, swimming pools and thrusters to power it along.

'Project Utopia' will offer guests 11 accommodation decks and a 360-degree observation area. Spanning the length of a cruise ship, each leg is supported by a thruster to keep the yacht island stable in the extreme seas.

Below deck has enough room to house shops, bars and restaurants, covered by a retractable canopy, said creators BMT and Yacht Island Design.

BMT Nigel Gee, a British naval architectural consulting firm launched the concept in Monaco, so far just on paper, which calls for a small city to be built on the same principles as existing oil rigs. It could sit in one spot offshore, or move at a jellyfish pace to another location.

The company has not yet put a figure on how much the floating island might cost, but defend the concept stating that it does not use any unproven technology or architecture.

Set to become reality in the Maldives, plans are underway to build a floating golf course. Featuring 18 holes connected by underwater tunnels, the course will be made up of several islands floating in the Indian Ocean, which will contain two or three holes each.

Earlier this year, Yacht Island Design revealed blueprints for its lavish yacht recreating the billionaire's playground of Monaco. Oriental Chuan and Eastern Promise are next concept for release.
