Trumping a Russian oligarch can be a tricky exercise. After all they would appear to have it all – football clubs, trophy wives and tricky-to-spell surnames.
However, here’s where you can play your ace card. Provided you have a spare few million quid of course. This Tropical Island Paradise yacht is the final word in decadent boat design.
Dreamed up by the fertile minds at Yacht Island Design, the yacht is premised upon a secluded island paradise. With an overall length of 90 metres the vessel is designed to house 10 guests in the height of luxury.
As well as a volcanic island, which incorporates a waterfall, the boat has an ocean view pool, palm trees, private cabanas, a bar area, a setting for outdoor dining, copious indoor entertainment and, And, AND a deck on which to land your helicopter. As you do.
According to those clever people at Yacht Island Design a boat of this nature – which is still in the concept stage – would take 18 to 24 months to build. So get your order in now and make Roman Whatshisname green with envy midway through 2013.
And yes, before you ask, we did pester them for a price - just 'cause we were thinking about ordering a couple - but at this stage there are too many variables (final specifications, which ship yard is used etc) to even come close to estimating costs.
