And real estate too - in the luxury segment superyachts are a better option in comfort compared to the landside equivalent of a large house. In part because design adapted to the marine environment brushes sclerotic traditions in a single stroke.
An Intentionally pricey house in California is designed to simulate life in a large boat.
Billionaires, he realized, spend eight weeks of the year on their hundred-million-dollar yachts "but then they only live in a $30-million home."
That discrepancy, he reasoned, didn’t make sense, so he created a home with finishes and furnishings reminiscent of a mega-yacht and a matching price point to boot
But even the super luxury segment can't afford such houses in just about every country (neither can society or the environment) so they opt for a movable palace built in Italy, registered in Bermuda, and towed to places where such modern convenience would be impossible in land, such as France or the Seychelles, and eventually the entire landmass.
if the move is indeed inevitable, part of our challenge is to make it as affordable as every other mass technology.
