Christie’s International Real Estate has announced a new initiative to allow you to own your very own private island in any corner of the world.

In partnership with Amillarah Private Islands, guests have been given the opportunity to create something truly unique – a bespoke tailor made floating residence anywhere in the world, be it Dubai, the Maldives or New York. The completely customizable islands are free from environmental impact, safe from rising sea levels and will create a new underwater habitat for sea life, bringing personalized real estate to a whole new level.

Amillarah describes private islands as the complete embodiment of luxury, offering privacy, exclusivity and freedom – a place to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and a place to dream and linger.

Amillarah is the creative vision of developer Dutch Docklands, founded in 2005 by Paul H.T.M van de Camp and world renowned Dutch architect Koen Olthuis who was once named one of the most influential people in the world by Time Magazine. For years, the Dutch have lead the world in defense technology for years, leading Christie’s to form a perfect partnership to deliver luxurious floating islands.

Van de Camp previously told The National: “We are the only company in the world offering floating islands tailor-made to client specifications, based on our Dutch heritage of hundreds of years of working with the water.”

The islands are completely self sufficient and use the latest state of the art green technology, allowing their environmental impact to be kept at a minimum. They are stable on the water and are built to last for over 100 years, helping to create a new underwater habitat for sea life. They will reportedly each feature their own residence, garden, pool and beach.
