A plane takes off from the landing strip on top of the Freedom Ship. The finished vessel would be so big it could never enter a port.
An incredible $10 billion floating city, built to house 50,000 people, is edging closer to reality.
With casinos, an airport and shopping centers, this city of the sea could be a permanent home to thousands of people.
The Freedom Ship is a mile long and 25 storeys high, with the finished 2.7 million-ton vessel so big it could never enter a port.
What the Freedom Ship would look like from the side: With casinos, an airport and shopping centers, this floating city could be home to thousands of people.
The benefits of ocean occupation would involve brand new schools, hospitals, businesses, parks, promenades, landscaping, public art and saltwater aquariums.
The Freedom Ship would also have room for another 30,000 daily visitors, 20,000 crew and 10,000 overnight guests.
Florida-based company, Freedom Ship International have designed the vessel which sails constantly, circling the globe.
The giant ship would sail around the world and have room for another 30,000 daily visitors, 20,000 crew and 10,000 overnight guests.
Roger M Gooch, director and vice-president of Freedom Ship International said: "The Freedom Ship will be the largest vessel ever built, and the first ever floating city.
"This will be a very heavily capitalised project and the global economy in the last few years hasn't been too inviting for unproven progressive projects like ours.
"Happily, though it has experienced a hiatus, the Freedom Ship now looks as if it is a live project again.
"In the last six months we're getting more interest in the project and we are hopeful we will raise the $1 billion to begin construction."
