On Friday at Auction Napa Valley’s Barrel Auction I came across another one of the many luxury items that wealthy people are investing in today: The World Residences. Thanks to this interesting and luxurious concept, you no longer have to imagine living the ultimate lifestyle that comes with combining a private yacht and a luxury vacation home. You can wake up to new scenery outside your private veranda every few days as your actual home takes you all around the globe.
The World is the largest private residential ship on the planet stretching 644 feet, and it has been continuously circumnavigating the globe since launching in 2002.
The World consists of only 165 individual Homes, offering the most exclusive lifestyles imaginable. Not only do Residents own their individual Residences, but collectively, they own the ship, ensuring that the experiences – both onboard and off – are far beyond current luxury travel standards. The Resident community is comprised of 130 families who hail from 19 countries throughout North America, Europe, Asia, Australia, South America and South Africa.
Every resident has a voice in creating the Ship’s itineraries every year including special, in-depth expeditions and unique Enrichment Program. Outfitted with a team of leading industry experts, The World’s Expeditions provide residents and their guests with an enriching experience that is unparalleled. You’ll learn all the insider knowledge of a certain area through meaningful discussions on the culture, natural environment, history, and flora and fauna of each leg on every expedition. Explore some of the most fascinating destinations, often participating in local customs, witnessing wildlife up close, and embarking on record-breaking adventures.
Some of the most unique and exciting experience so far include hiking in Grenada’s Grand Etang rainforest, riding in a sunset camel safari in Australia diving in St. Barts, golfing at Scotland’s Kingsbarns, watching the running of the bulls from a private Pamplona apartment, kayaking among icebergs, befriending penguins in Antarctica, savoring a meal at the three-Michelin-star restaurant elBulli in Spain, gazing at a Papua New Guinea tribe’s dance ritual and many more.
If you love to travel, then The World Residences is for you.
