There are many decent cruise ships for sale at prices of less than one million dollars that would make good private megayachts. For example take the `VERGINA SKY` is a ship that I have personally inspected and so I can talk first hand about it. The asking price was $750000. Here are the specifics of the ship in a nutshell.
Unlike fractional ownership of aircraft and houseboats fractional owners of a cruise ship can all use the ship simultaneously. There is plenty of room for you and the other owners to live on the ship any time you want or all the time. You can use it as a full-time residence and so can the other co-owners.
At the economy end of the scale a co owner could buy 1% of an economical cruise ship for about $5000. However it is not necessary for all co owners to have equal shares in the ship. Ownership can easily be divided up into 1% increments. If one buyer wanted 5% then his cost of acquisition would be $25000. He would be entitled to 5% of the ship`s cabins and would have five votes on operations and management of the ship such as itinerary planning.
There is a company called Kiteship that has developed and produces kites for racing sailboats. These sailing kites do not require a mast. The kites fly high above the vessel attached by cable and controlled from the vessel. Dave Culp of Kiteship has done a technical feasibility study on fitting a very large kite onto a conventional cruise ship. This would dramatically reduce fuel consumption. It would convert a fuel guzzler to a green machine. This is tantamount to converting a powerboat into a sail boat. The design of a cruise ship limits the amount of sail that a conventional ship can safely accommodate. A cruise ship lacks the ballast of a sail boat. If used in addition to the main engine(s) the kite will increase fuel efficiency. If the kite is used to pull the ship with the main engines shut down the ship`s speed will be reduced substantially. However in this case not only would the ship save IFO (main engine fuel) but also save MDO (generator engine fuel). If the kite were pulling the ship unassisted by the ship`s engines then the propellers could be used to propel the ship`s generators without firing up the diesel generator engines. Even if the ship were traveling very slowly in the water the propellers would turn in reverse if freed from the main engines. This is a very simple and easy task for the ship`s engineer to accomplish. In other words the ship can be pulled by the kite and that motion will push the ship`s propellers providing power to produce electricity and power the air-conditioning without using any fuel. The trade-off is a loss of speed and also some tacking is required further reducing actual speed. What`s the rush? Why not go for maximum fuel savings? The salient point is that a high flying large kite can pull a cruise ship. If I were a co-owner of a cruise ship I would hope to find like minded co-owners who would be receptive to using such state-of-the-art technologies to save fuel.
Many travelers choose a cruise ship as their vacation. It offers the luxury of hotels while getting to travel to different locations. Choosing a cabin on a cruise ship is just as important as choosing a hotel when traveling to a land destination. There are many things to consider such as location on the ship view from the window and the different prices. Most cruise ships offer numerous different categories of cabins for guests to choose from. As with any vacation the wrong room accommodation could ruin a trip so do plenty of research and make the choice that best fits your needs.
