Private floating island fantasy concept

Published on November 16, 2015 by   ·   No Comments


What billionaire in his right mind hasn’t dreamed of owning his own island?  But hang on… what if you get bored with the weather?  What if you fancy a change of scenery?  Migaloo Private Submersible Yachts have come up with the perfect solution – Kokomo Ailand – a luxurious island that you can position anywhere in the world.  What more could any billionaire ask for?

Migaloo Private Submersible Yachts is the submarine arm of Austrian yacht designers MOTION CODE: BLUE.


MarinaLive! talked about Migaloo’s first “private submersible yacht” when it was announced last year (http://www.marinalive.net/2014/04/09/worlds-first-submersible-superyacht/).  Since then the Company has been busy designing away and they now have five models in the bag which max out at 283 metres.

However, the Company’s latest and greatest idea, Kokomo Ailand, is their floating flagship and it certainly wouldn’t look out of place in a Bond film – Spectre you missed out.

The island is a whopping 117 metres long with a 78 metre beam.  Although it looks more oil rig than megayacht, the amenities on board are second to none.


The owner’s penthouse is right at the top of the island with panoramic views of his own private fiefdom and the surrounding seas.  Then there are several themed decks including a verdant jungle deck complete with palm trees, tropical plants and cascading waterfalls.  The upper decks swoop around the central area which makes this feel much more like an island that a megayacht.  In addition to the jungle deck there is a Spa deck which contains everything your body beautiful could wish for including a Spa and beauty salons.  There is also a garden deck if you fancy a stroll.

On board there are swimming pools galore, one of which contains an ‘in-pool lift’ which will take you down to the waterside beach clubs.  Dining areas are also plentiful from al-fresco dining in the garden to BBQs on the beach, and the pièce de résistance is the underwater dining saloon.

Kokomo Ailand can be reached by helicopter, boat or indeed submarine.  There are four tender bays which provide plenty of storage for limousine tenders and toys.


In addition to the owner’s penthouse, the concept designs allow accommodation for 20 guests in four VIP cabins and a further six guest suites.  There is also plenty of crew accommodation available.

The Kokomo Ailand has been designed to work alongside the Migaloo Private Submersible Yachts.  The Company has designed a range of five yachts in conjunction with Estonian-registered Company Starkad Technologies OÜ.  The subs range in size from the M2 at a mere 72 metres long to their largest, the M7, which is a 283 metres by 32 metres.

This may be a concept but a lot of thought has gone into making the Kokomo Ailand a reality and Migaloo insists that the Island is based on existing technology and can be built as soon as there is a buyer interested.  There are plenty of billionaires out there with the money to do this, let’s just hope it’s a hero and not a villain that makes this amazing creation become reality.
