An outstanding opportunity to purchase a fully functioning self-contained offshore floating resort, casino, fishing/scuba lodge, scientific research lab, recording studio or…..
Built and conceived as a first class luxury offshore fishing lodge, originally built as a US offshore cable laying barge, which has been transformed over 5 years and tens of millions of dollars into this ready to go opportunity!
Designed and built to be anchored offshore for months, if not years at a time, with enough fuel to last over 2 years between re-fueling! The lodge was completely re-built and is registered as a 2009, with all new systems to enable her to be self-sufficient – making her own water, treating waste water and incinerating trash, while providing amazing, luxurious amenities at the owners chosen destination.
There are currently 2 owners/Presidential suites with separate living rooms, 12 standard (double queen) suites and 6 king bed suites, all with ensuite bathrooms. In addition there are 5 cabins that can be used for fishing/dive instructors, as well as 13 crew cabins (each with their own bathroom).
Other features include:
Helideck capable of handling full size helicopters or several smaller choppers.
60,000gal fresh water swimming pool with swim up bar and drop tank.
Full equipped gym, sauna, 2 massage rooms and beauty room
Walk-in wine room
VIP Cinema - screening room
Dining salon seats 50
Large main salon with formal bar
Full commercial galley with walk-in freezer and cooler rooms
11,000 sq.ft space forward of crew area that can be built out to suit new owners requirements (more crew, recording studio, nightclub, etc.)
6,000 sq.ft upper deck can be built out to suit new owners requirements (casino, nightclub, extra cabins, stage -concert venue).
Equipped with a large “working deck” aft, with 2 large secure berths inset into the transom, capable of docking up to 70’ yachts, plus an overhead gantry davit system for launching 32’ center consoles, RIBS, or a submarine, using the alternate 20 ton crane. Complete with fish cleaning stations, live bait wells, flash freeze room and dive compressors, the lodge is ready to cater to all of a fisherman’s desires!
This self contained floating resort, is capable of producing up to 8,000usg of fresh water a day, to supplement the 42,700usg water tank. The water system has multiple carbon, UV and silver/copper sanitation systems, ensuring the purest of drinking water.
There are 3 Caterpillar 99kW generators (plus a 50kW emergency back-up generator on the upper deck), any two of which are capable of powering the entire resort, with enough diesel storage onboard to be self sufficient for over 2 years without re-fueling!!
There are three, industrial sized, 40 ton (each!), chilled water air conditioning plants, each independent of the other, any one of which can chill the whole vessel.
There are 11,000usg & 15,000usg black and gray water holding tanks, which are serviced by an ORCA Waste Treatment System capable of treating all of the waste onboard and USCG certified to discharge the clean water overboard.
There is both an industrial compactor and incinerator onboard to dispose of any household refuse.
The 13 crew cabins each have their own ensuite head, plus there is a crew galley, mess/TV area for the crew’s relaxation. 4 story service elevator, combined with storage rooms, laundry room, workshops, plus a walk-in fridge and separate freezer, each of approx. 1,800cu.ft. ensure there are plenty of supplies and spares at hand. There is additional space on the crew deck to add extra cabins if required.
On deck. There are plenty of amenities as well, with a dive compressor room capable of filling 4 bottles at once, flash freeze room to ensure the catch gets home safely, 2 x 1,000 gal. live bait tanks, rod storage room and a 20 ton crane to lift all of the water toys!
Registered as an “accommodation barge”, this vessel doesn’t require the same manning and certificates that a vessel of the same dimensions would be required to have. Such that it only takes three full time crew to operate the barge if not in use, while anchored offshore.
Potential uses include:
Offshore casino - gentleman's club
Oceanagraphic Scientific research center
Recording studio - nightclub
Remote self-contained resort
High density metropolitan office space/hotel/entertainment or fitness center.
This barge has to be seen to be appreciated and is being offered at a small fraction of replacement cost or the cost that current owner has into this magnificent vessel!
