The Ownership Experience On Board The World

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA – Being an owner of a private Residence on The World, the largest privately owned residential yacht on earth, is a privilege of thrilling global exploration and enrichment enjoyed by an exclusive community of adventure-seekers. Collectively, the Residents own the Ship (all 165 exquisite private Residences), ensuring that their experiences – both on board and ashore – transcend the current standards of luxury travel.


“What we share with one another goes far beyond ownership. Each of us has an endless thirst for knowledge, adventure and of course, travel.” 


The World continuously circumnavigates the globe visiting the most exotic and well-traveled ports and allowing Residents to explore destinations with a depth never thought possible. Their thirst for knowledge and adventure is not only satisfied by the Journeys, which the Residents have collectively selected, but by incredible, comprehensive expeditions and unique enrichment activities to prepare them for each port visited, and beyond.


“As time passes, neighbors become travel companions and travel companions become good friends. Above all, we offer each other comfort, good company, and lots of laughter.” 


The 150 families who call The World ‘home’ have chosen to discover the treasures and unique experiences of the planet together in an intimate setting. Their shared experiences of world cultures, whether it is watching in awe at a mesmerizing fire dance ceremony of a Papua New Guinea tribe or Pamplona’s spirited running of the bulls, enhance their lives to an immeasurable degree. The warm and welcoming sense of community is one of the greatest surprises – and one of the most cherished assets – of life on board The World.


“There’s something about walking through your own door after a day of travel.” 


Hike in the Corsican Mountains by day and then delight in a restful night’s sleep on one of the Ship’s ultra-comfortable Bali beds. Enjoy a sunset camel safari in Australia and then relax on your private balcony listening to the gentle hum of the ocean. Befriend penguins during an afternoon in Antarctica and then reflect over the experience with friends and neighbors while savoring a delicious meal in your own Residence prepared to your personal specifications by an onboard chef.

While sailing on an infinite voyage around the world, Residents can relax in their sanctuary at the end of the day in comfort and surrounded by their own books, photographs, and personal belongings – because it’s their home. It’s the ideal way to recharge for the next day of marvel and adventure.
