Un-treehugger: A Yacht That Thinks It's An Island

Just when we thought the 80s and Miami Vice were behind us: Take a look at Wally Yachts', WallyIsland, a company that advertises: "Why buy just any luxury yacht when you can own an island?"

Our question exactly. We have to wonder, is this a joke from the makers of National Lampoon's Vacation?

Apparently not. This 325-foot-long monstrosity has been designed "with all the comforts and amenities to live on board full time," says Wally Yacht, a yacht company based in Monaco.

Expected to sell for about $90 million dollars, and ready in about 2 years for sale, WallyIsland will come outfitted with its own private gardens, and a deck large enough for a tennis court or helipad.

Reports ABC news to accompany (what seems like) a paid advertisement for WallyIsland: As Economy Slips, Yacht Sales Skyrocket.

See a promo video done by the company in 2006:
