Saudi Arabia will soon be home to Pangeos, a giant floating city in the shape of a turtle, according to a report by Arabian Business.

Pangeos was named after the supercontinent Pangea, which existed from 200 to 335 million years ago. The terayacht-style project will provide space for up to 60,000 people.

The Arabian Business reported that when it is finished, it will be the largest floating structure ever built. It is now under development. Italian design firm Lazzarini designed the luxurious project.

The floating city would be 1,800 feet long, Lazzarini told Arabian Business. The wings of Pangeos would be its widest point, measuring 610 meters (2,000 feet).

The floating boat will also contain 19 villas and 64 apartments on each of its turtle wings. A rooftop garden, mall, and beach club will also be included in Pangeos’ amenities.

A ‘Terashipyard’ infrastructure measuring 650 meters in width and 600 meters in length will also be part of the unique building’s design, giving it easy access to the sea.

As per the report, Pangeos is designed to sail nonstop around the world.

It will be furnished with practically endless green energy sources. Waves from the ocean and the roof’s solar panels are likely to power the engine.

The huge turtle-shaped yacht is expected to move at a maximum speed of 5 knots …
