This Super-Yacht Puts All Regular Yachts To Shame


Architect extraordinaire Zaha Hadid has done it all. From dancing skyscrapers in Dubai to hidden Russian bungalows, from aerodynamic couches to aqua tables, she's brought her signature curved line to almost every nook and cranny of the design realm.

Keeping It Classy: ATM Dispenses Gold Bars


It's the ultimate hole-in-the-wall - a money machine that dispenses pure gold.

Rare 64-year-old Glenfiddich bottle up for grabs at Bonhams


Whisky may not be everyone's idea of a sound financial investment, but as we have reported previously, as long as you choose wisely and resist drinking it, IT IS! With that in mind, you may wish to consider an exceptionally rare bottle of Glenfiddich coming up for auction next month. It is one of only 61 bottles produced by the distillery in 1937 and is the first to appear at auction. Having matured for 64 years it is also one of the oldest whiskies ever released and is expected to fetch between GBP15,000 - 20,000 (US$22,250 – 29,670).

It’s time for some island shopping in Greece!


As the world has been focusing on the tragic economic crisis engulfing Greece, the call for a Big Fat Greek Auction to repay some of the country’s debt is louder than before. The auction would include ancient artifacts, stakes in state-owned companies and assets, such as uninhabited islands. Of the 6,000 Greek islands, scattered across the Aegean and Ionian seas, only 220 are inhabited and many are already up for sale.

Cheap Australian Islands


Many people dream of owning their own tropical island, but for most it remains just a fantasy. Now, though, a slice of paradise has become almost affordable in Australia, with dozens of islands on the market and the global financial crisis driving down prices.

Off the Queensland coast alone, at least 11 islands are up for sale, with price tags reduced by nearly a half compared with a year ago. Some offer not only powdery-white beaches and crystal-clear waters, but all the accoutrements of a jetset lifestyle: mansions, swimming pools, twin-engine aircraft.
