YACHT DESIGN HAS gotten pretty extravagant in recent years but nothing compares to Kokomo Ailand.

More mobile island than yacht, Kokomo is a floating, semi-submersed vessel with a level of luxury that rivals a four-star resort.

According to renderings, the “private floating habitat” features multiple decks and amenities, a sky-high penthouse suite and a beach club.

The company behind it, Migaloo Private Submarines, hasn’t received any orders yet but it claims Kokomo can be built to specification immediately with existing technology.

According to a representative, “the price depends strongly on the client’s wishes”.

The owner’s penthouse sits 260 feet above sea level with two elevators, a glass-bottomed Jacuzzi, a private beach club, and ocean views.

Eight engines allow the mammoth platform to chug along at speeds up to 8 knots, or about 9 mph.

The real draw is the beach deck, replete with multiple pools, barbecue areas, underwater dining, a shark-feeding station, and an outdoor cinema.
