Designed by Freedom Ship International (FSI), the vessel is set to cost $10 billion and would weigh 2.7 million tonnes - meaning it would be too big to ever enter a port. This means the ocean community would spend the whole time at sea, circling the globe twice a year.
During this time, FSI claim the ship would spend 70 per cent off the shore of major cities and 30 per cent moving between countries.
The route would take the ship from the east coast of the U.S across the Atlantic Ocean into Europe, passing Italy before looping back and sailing around Africa, across to Australia, heading north into Asia before spending the end of the year on the west coast of America and into South America.
‘Happily, though it has experienced a hiatus, the Freedom Ship now looks as if it is a live project again. In the last six months we're getting more interest in the project and we are hopeful we will raise the $1 billion to begin construction.’
Power for the vessel would come from various sources including wave and solar power and on-board generators.
Visitors will be able to leave the ship, either by plane or boat, to visit cities and countries where the ship will also pick up supplies as and when needed.
Can't imagine what a rogue wave would do to that.
sounds great but what happenes when there is a tsunami
The design is poor, it could definitely be utilized a lot more sufficiently. Also, like others have stated, what IF a tsunami or a rouge wave were to go head on with this ship? - I'm sure the aftermath would be horrific.
Evidently lots of highly educated engineers in this thread.
That for some reason don't even know a tsunami isn't going to negatively effect ships out at sea, especially ones this big.
You guys are funny.
