Orsos: A Moveable Floating Island

Orsos Islands is a luxury floating island that has the ability to be moved and re-anchored. I should clarify that it technically hasn’t been completed yet and that the photos you see are renderings — the finished product is expected to be completed in 2013.

The estimated 4.6 million dollar island is over 20 meters wide (65+ ft) and more than 37 meters in length (121+ ft). The Orsos is state of the art, powered both day and night by a noiseless wind energy system, as well as more than 120 m² of solar panels.

With accommodations for up to 12 guests, the possibilities for the tourist industry to employ some of these places anchored close to small islands or having several out on the water from mainland would appeal to many who have the means to pay the stiff price.
