Are you tired of 2020 and just want to get away? Well do I have a deal for you…
This year has been tough! No doubt about it! I imagine many of us would like to just get away from it all! Well, do I have a deal for you!
How would you like to spend your lockdown on an Antarctic adventure? Russian oligarch (that’s a rich Russian with political influence – I looked it up…) Oleg Tinkov is offering to lease his 253-foot vessel, La Datcha, the world’s first private ice-breaking ship that can comfortably sail to Antarctica or the outer reaches of Greenland with 12 passengers aboard. The ship, which can go for 40 days without refueling, offers you the chance to “Ram into the pack ice and walk right out onto the frozen sea”. There are 5 guest cabins, each with a dressing room and a washroom, accommodations for 25 crew members, a private hospital, and two gyms. Hang on, there’s more: A Turkish bath and sauna to relax in after an ice trek, a jacuzzi, and many toys, including two snow-scooters, four jet-skis, a diving center with decompression chamber, and TWO helicopters in a below-deck hangar. Also on board is a mini-submarine which holds three people. How much to lease this floating piece of opulence overkill? Just $850,000… Per week.
It sounds like a lot of money, but if you split it with another family, it’s about the same as a winter home in Florida! Plus you can move it anywhere!
