A limited number of global residences are now available for fractional purchase
Storylines, the world's first environmentally sustainable private residence ship, is releasing a limited number of homes for shared purchase. The fractional shares are for 25%, allowing up to four residents to share a luxury residence on board the company’s inaugural vessel, MV Narrative, which circumnavigates the world every three years.
Residents who choose a shared purchase option enjoy all the same amenities as other residents, including the luxury of zero maintenance or upkeep responsibilities.

The residence types available for shared purchase are:
- RU4 Dream, a 721-square-foot (67-square-meter) home with waterfront balcony. The introductory pricing for a 25% share is $1,275,000 for the lifetime of the vessel and $37,000 for quarterly all-inclusive living fees ($6,167 per person per month based on double occupancy).
