    Yours for $6.5M: The man-made ‘island’ that can be towed to any ocean in the world

    Got an extra $6.5 million lying around?

    An Austrian firm has come up what it hopes is the next big thing for the mega-rich: a man-made, floating “island” with a list price of 5.2 million euros ($6.5 million), the company’s founder said Monday.

    Measuring 20 by 37 metres (66 by 121 feet), the “Orsos Island” has no engine but can be anchored anywhere its owners choose and then towed to another location the other side of the world if they so wish, Hungarian-born Gabor Orsos said.

    hm, not impressed - just a huge houseboat with no motor

    & it doesn't even look very fancy - not worth 6.5 IMO
