Freedom Ship | Via
The Freedom Ship is 25 storeys high and would feature a casino, an art gallery, a park and a shopping centre. The concept, designed by a Florida-based company would cost $10billion if was commissioned to be built. The vessel could house 50,000 people but it would contain additional space to hold an extra 30,000 visitors. The ship would constantly sail around the world - doing a full circuit every two years - but would be too large to enter any ports.
Powered by solar panels and wave energy, the city would navigate from the east coast of the US across the Atlantic to Europe and into the Mediterranean.
It would loop back and sail around the Cape of Good Hope at the tip of Africa and across to Australia. Heading into East Asia, it would steer across the Pacific before spending the end of the year on the west coast of North America. It would chase the summer sun into South America.
If completed, the city will be 750ft at the beam, 350ft high and 4,500ft in length – four times longer than the Queen Mary II cruise ship which measures 1,132ft.
