Figure Eight Luxury Homes

Looking for an exclusive private island?  Figure Eight Island is the ideal option, oozing Southern elegence and privacy located on the North Carolina Coast just minutes from Wilmington.
This 1,300-acre, five-mile island retreat features only private homes – currently 460, and each one is different. You won’t find cookie-cutter developments. And the homes are gorgeous, most with spectacular ocean, sound or marsh views. From luxurious, exquisite five and six bedroom homes to more modest three and four bedroom bungalows, all have their own personalities.
The island has permanent residents, but is popular as a second home and vacation location, too, often as a haven for celebrities and politicians

Luxury Wilmington Condos

There are several reasons why people often fall in love with Wilmington NC. One of the best parts of the city is the River front in Historic Downtown Wilmington with cobble stone streets, historic homes, cute shops and old world charm  Apart from numerous entertainment options, there are many island adventures awaiting, just to name a few..  Wrightsville Beach, Figure Eight Island and Pleasure Island which consists of Carolina and Kure Beach. 

The fishing opportunities that are available near Wilmington also make it quite popular. The fact that King Mackrell,grouper, wahoo, and Sea bass along with other game fish abounds in the area around this place makes it a popular fishing destination. Those interested in fishing competitions also go there since the prize money is  awarded for the biggest fish!

If you want to enjoy this place properly, you may have to spend more than just a few days. Actually it is one of the tourist spots to which people want to visit whenever they can spare time. The problem with these short vacations is that it is often difficult to get the right kind of accommodation because the number of tourists who visit Wilmington can get very high. This means that you will have to book your rooms in advance to ensure that you do not end up shelling out the steep rates that are charged when most rooms have been booked.

If you have a Luxury condo of your own, you will not have to browse through the various options that and enquire whether suites are available each time you wish to visit the place. You will also be sure about the quality of the rooms in which you will stay. Here is a sample of what you could have!

Luxury Wilmington Real Estate - Not on Land? Mega Yachts

Incredibly expensive, more than the average person can imagine. Billionaires have their accountants doing the math.

Introducing “A” – the most recent member of the mega-yacht club, and to put things in perspective, the fuel tank is 757,000 liters. Diesel fuel costs around $1.40 per liter currently, so it would cost just over  $1.4 million just to fill the tank. That amount of fuel will last 15.5 days at cruising speed.  So the cost of building the ship becomes a little academic when the running costs are taken into consideration. A” is 118 meters long, and from whichever angle you see her is perfect, not a poor line in sight. I understand there are three swimming pools aboard, an owner’s suite, 6 guest suites and accommodations for 42 staff, which includes 5 guest’s staff.

The owner also owns one of the largest coal companies in the world, I doubt the cost of fuel is an issue.  Luxury Real Estate on Water!
