As Morski writes, imagine living in an apartment aboard a luxury ship and sailing the world’s seas and oceans. It sounds like a futuristic scenario or like something out of a film, but it is a reality and it should start taking shape this year – and right here on Croatian soil. The British company Storylines plans to build a residential ship worth more than half a billion euros, and it will be built by Croatian hands at Brodosplit.
The construction of the Narrative – one of the most luxurious residential ships in the entire world – should start right here in the Republic of Croatia this year, with 547 residences ranging from one to four bedrooms. The most expensive boat apartment will cost 7.1 million euros, and the apartments will be rented out – for about 350 thousand euros for a period of 12 or 24 months, writes Skveranka.
The Storylines company behind the ship says the ship that Brodosplit will be in charge of building will have 20 restaurants and bars, three swimming pools, an art studio, a bowling alley and a pet/animal exercise area, and fitness enthusiasts will have a running track, a gym and a yoga studio at their disposal, as well as golf simulators.
The most innovative aspect of the design is the water-level marina deck where passengers will be able to use jet skis or kayaks, or simply dive down into the sea below when the gigantic vessel is moored.
The ship is currently in the design and engineering phase
It will be, as they pointed out from Storylines, the most luxurious residential ship that will enables the citizen of the world to live a healthy and active life full of freedom and adventure, all while maintaining their work and family life. A life in which they can enjoy unique, unforgettable life-changing experiences as they travel the world from the comfort of their homes.
Narrative is expected to sail the world every 1,000 days, stopping for a few nights in most ports. Residents will be able to come and go as they please, invite friends on board to stay or rent their apartments when they are not at sea.
Storylines points out that Narrative, which will operate on cleaner liquefied natural gas, is now in the design and engineering phase, and that the first steel should be cut later this year at the Brodosplit shipyard.
”We’re excited to work together with the Croatian shipyard Brodosplit in Split on our first private residential ship which will be called MV Narrative. It was important for us to build a ship here in Europe and we’re delighted with the partnership with Brodosplit on the project,” said Storylines co-founder Shannon Lee.
