LIFESTYLE: You can live on a cruise ship in apartments from $385,665.

With the aver­age price of a house in the UK being $361,919, you might want to rethink buy­ing on dry land and instead buy a prop­er­ty that sails the seas.

MV Nar­ra­tive is a “res­i­den­tial com­mu­ni­ty at sea” and offers one to four bed­room apart­ments and stu­dios for sale.

Flori­da-based Sto­ry­lines shared ren­der­ings of the 226m-long ves­sel, with 547 res­i­dences aboard.

The huge yacht is being built in Croa­t­ia and is expect­ed to be launched in 2024, reports Dai­ly Mail.

The sto­ry­lines state that their pri­ma­ry goal is to “pro­vide more afford­able entry-lev­el options in the con­do market.”


How­ev­er, the ‘all-inclu­sive’ offer will still require liv­ing expens­es, which will cov­er main­te­nance and food costs, which will set you back between $65,000 and $200,000 per unit and per year.

Each apart­ment will be fur­nished with “Ital­ian-designed” fur­nish­ings and will be equipped with flat-screen tele­vi­sions, “air-con­di­tion­ing” sys­tems, adjustable mood light­ing and stereo speak­ers, etc.

There is also a 24/7 home deliv­ery ser­vice where res­i­dents can eat at 20 bars and restaurants.

On the enter­tain­ment side, a cin­e­ma, a micro­brew­ery, three swim­ming pools and a library of 10,000 books will also be present on the giant ship.

Oh and there’s a spa and well­ness cen­ter, includ­ing a salon for fresh skin, a yoga stu­dio, and a hot tub.

Lec­tures and work­shops will also be offered “on and off” the ship if your thirst for knowl­edge requires it.

A state­ment adds: “Res­i­dents are encour­aged to form spe­cial inter­est clubs; maybe you are pas­sion­ate about chess, pho­tog­ra­phy, wine, astron­o­my or bridge?

“Friends and fam­i­ly of Sto­ry­lines res­i­dents are wel­come! Invite a friend over for a month, your kids for a week, or cre­ate ever­last­ing mem­o­ries with your grand­kids for an entire summer.

“If you wish, Sto­ry­lines will even take care of rent­ing your res­i­dence while you’re away.”
