The Magellan Gets Even Larger
The Magellan, which plans to be the world's largest private residential cruise ship has just gotten a bit bigger. They have announced twelve additional residences and a new amenity, a tennis court. The Magellan is now 860 feet and weighs an astounding 72,000 tons. The new residences include four one-bedroom condos and eight two-bedroom condos. The Magellan includes an indoor pool, greenhouse (shown here), resaurants, a spa, an observatory and a 450-seat live, satellite broadcast theatre. Private residences on The Magellan range in price from $1.875 million to $8 million for penthouses and from $134,000 for fractional ownership condos. The Magellan is set to be completed in 2009 and the ship is designed to run for 100 years. With the residential cruise ship market just beginning, the Magellan is clearly seeking to be the most extravagant option for those looking for life on the seas.
