“You take your home with you,” said Panton, the company's founder.
The MV Narrative will have 547 accommodations and a host of amenities. The ship will sail across six continents, and its residents will be able to use the premises as floating pied-a-terre or year-round homes, so their journeys can never end.
What travelers can expect from MV Narrative
Like other residential vessels such as The World, a private residential yacht, MV Narrative is set to travel the world. Although itineraries have yet to be confirmed, destinations are likely to include Rome and Naples in Italy, the Greek island of Santorini and Split in Croatia.
