Floating Island An Austrian company is giving wealthy consumers the chance to own a private floating island. But life aboard an ORSOS Island doesn't exactly come cheap either - setting buyers back about 5.2 million Euro ($6.5 million). The floating island offers more than 10,000 square feet of living space and enough rooms to accommodate 12 people, as well as up to four staff members. Measuring 66 feet by 121 feet (20m by 37m), the "Orsos Island" has no engine but can be anchored anywhere its owners choose and then towed to another location if they wish.
