Why do they have an aviation expert anyway? And an oil spill response expert, are they going to be drilling for oil? Do many oil tankers navigate through The World islands? Where are the deer?

Gabriel subconsciously got influenced by previous video of cheaply-imitated B-rated actress of "circle of good people".

Therefore his observation is not far-fetched at all.

If there was anything to shout about these people would be doing it. Unless there is evidence to the contrary it may be the end of the line for this 'project'?

I don´t wanna sound like a pessimist, but i doubt that the whole development ( The World) will succeed at all. It was just a bad idea to begin with. Now they realise this and simply make little to no expenses there. maybe some state funded stuff for media stunts i could imagine. Other then that, i feel that this is a huge white elephant.

You dont sound like a pessimist, you sound like a realist. Potential investors would be better simply giving their money to charity............at least they will achieve something

TBH, i was excited when these crazy projects were revealed long time ago, but i didn´t really grasp the whole picture yet.

The money wasted in this city for nothing must be an awfuly huge sum already.

Any news about this?


I was supposed to take possession of my floating crap in Sep-2016. She was very persistent and was even ready to accept penalty for late delivery!


There are also many other editions being rolling out. Initially started at 32 unique villas, we are approaching 500 now. They should stop wasting time with construction and just build 10,000 of those all around those islands. Huge margins. Why not?

I wish this guy was not such a circus clown. He surely knows about quality and elegance. Look how there is no rail on top of the glass for a clear field of vision? This irritates the hell outta me whenever I sit in a beach restaurant. The rail is always eye level and blocks the beautiful view.

Right now there is only one, and since its called the 'Floating Seahorse' there is no indication that there will even be a second one, let alone 500.

The good news is that according to their website:

'We have applied for building permits on Germany Island and all 32 villas will be constructed in three stages. Completion of island infrastructure and all beach and lagoon villas is scheduled for August 2017'

So whilst there have been no construction updates since last November, they should be handing over all 32 villas in August. I'm sure when that happens anyone who had any doubts about the credibility of this company will be totally reassured!

Instead of butting in to everything with your ill-conceived investment, why don't you provide some information to us here? For sure you are keeping in touch with the Circus about your payments, pictures, updates, etc. Tell us. Don't be shy.


As I mentioned earlier, it was supposed to be 20-something exclusive water villas. Then they increased that to 96. After this they started selling second stage. Then Signature Edition, then Czar Edition. Sure as hell we are at 500 now because it costs next-to-nothing to build these. And they do not need escrow accounts. If the whole project gets done, they will install one in each drop of seawater. Do the math.

Only asked a question, not sure why you have to answer in such an aggressive manner.
Thought these boards were for people to get information from each other to help in their investments.

In reality, they're approaching one, hope it's your one?

From the beginning I have provided tons of information here: Island visit, launch prices, offered prices, handover dates, location, proximity, no escrow requirement, numbers and so on.

You provided NOTHING here except implying that you bought one and how good of an investment it is. Initially I thought you are working PR for the Company, but then reading your other ill investments in the past, I realized you are just a fool sucked into another scam once again.

If forums are for sharing information, do share something instead of butting in to everything I have been writing last 2 years. If you are not sharing anything, then don't complain.
