World’s first environmentally sustainable private residence ship is releasing a limited number of homes for shared purchase.
Storylines, the world’s first environmentally sustainable private residence ship, is releasing a limited number of homes for shared purchase. The fractional shares are for 25%, allowing up to four residents to share a luxury residence on board the company’s inaugural vessel, MV Narrative, which circumnavigates the world every three years.
Residents who choose a shared purchase option enjoy all the same amenities as other residents, including the luxury of zero maintenance or upkeep responsibilities.
“We’re excited to make this incredible lifestyle more accessible to global citizens who want a vacation home that travels the world,” said Storylines CEO Alister Punton. “We have seen considerable demand from people who want to live at sea for a few months every year.”
The residence types available for shared purchase are:
RU4 Dream, a 721-square-foot (67-square-meter) home with waterfront balcony. The introductory pricing for a 25% share is $1,275,000 for the lifetime of the vessel and $37,000 for quarterly all-inclusive living fees ($6,167 per person per month based on double occupancy).
RU2 Explore, a 377-square-foot (35-square-meter) home with waterfront balcony. The introductory pricing for a 25% share is $598,000 for the lifetime of the vessel and $26,700 for quarterly all-inclusive living fees ($4,450 per person per month based on double occupancy).
Fees include food, drinks, laundry, housekeeping, and all the ship’s amenities.
The 25% shares are broken down by season:
- March through May;
- June through August;
- September through November;
- December through February.
Storylines and Brodosplit Shipyard Sign Ship Building Contract for World’s First Environmentally Sustainable Residential Community at Sea
At the end of August, Storylines residential ships and Brodosplit shipyard in Split, Croatia, have signed a construction contract to build the world’s first environmentally sustainable private residence ship. Brodosplit, part of the DIV Group, has commenced the engineering phase of the 753-foot (229 meters) passenger vessel with 547 private residences on board. The ship, to be named MV Narrative, is the first residential ship powered by liquid natural gas propulsion (LNG).
The ship is different from a vacation cruise ship in that it is purposely built for residential life at sea. It is intended to be a floating community and includes a post office, school, library, hospital, bank, pools, office spaces and 20 dining and bar venues. It features the largest wellness center at sea with a 10,000-square foot area for the spa, gym and anti-aging clinic. The ship’s amenities also include a waterfront marina with personal watercraft, bowling alley, hydroponic garden farm and an open-air fitness deck with racquet sports, yoga sun deck and running track.
Total sales revenue of the project valued at US$1.5B.
