Why bother with RVs, when you have a floating mansion? One entrepreneur from China had the same idea in mind, so he spent $61,000 USD building his own floating palace with panoramic sea views. This project was far too big to handle himself, and that’s why a friend joined in. The main issue that ran into was finding a way to stabilize the platform to prevent it from bobbing up and down with the currents. Next, they had to find a hydropower plant nearby for electricity.

Once they resolved the bobbing issue with sixteen metal anchors, they finished the 600-square-meter home, which has a host of luxurious amenities, including a wraparound deck, floor to ceiling windows, wood flooring, several TVs, and minimalist furniture pieces. His longest stay has been around 21-days, when China was locked down, forcing him to bring his family onto the floating mansion for quarantine. There’s no word yet on if this entrepreneur eventually plans to turn it into an Airbnb rental.
