We’ll let the description speak for itself.

“This sprawling 225 acre island of unspoiled beauty, laced by swaying coconut palm trees and natural habitat, is 1 mile long by 1/3 mile wide with 150 foot elevations. The impressive coral reef, which encompasses a pristine blue lagoon, magically has a natural opening of 200 feet wide, thus allowing for luxury yachts over 200 feet to enter and dock, and have the serene protection of the lagoon.”

Price: $25,000,000

 

Ok, now let’s assume you’ve gone mad. You buy them all. A grand total of $40 Million dollars, spent just like that. Now consider this: If you had $400,000,000 in the bank earning just a few percent, you’d make the $40 million back in no time at all. Doesn’t seem so crazy now, does it?

No matter how you decide to spend your winnings, don’t forget about the people who helped you along the way. Maybe even the person who wrote this post? Ok, ok. At least send us a postcard?
