Remember the deserted island seized by Javier Bardem’s deranged Bond villain in Skyfall? That’s a real place in Japan. Located 15km off the coast of Nagasaki, Hashima island (also known as Gakuranman) used to host a flourishing mining town, but was subsequently abandoned by its inhabitants in the 70s when Japan’s reliance on coal dwindled.
Why settle for your own private island when you can bring the entire island, complete with a miniature volcano, lush tropics, beach huts and clear waters, with you on board your yacht? Now you can move anywhere in the world, and your home, plus the land it sits on, can join you for the ride, too. This tropical island yacht project is designed by UK-based Yacht Island Designs.
