Let me propose the "captain nemo float out" it is basicly building a "better yacht" that can stay in open ocean for long periods of time.
Yachts can not stay in open ocean for long periods of time as the wave action makes staying there quite uncomfortable.
Yachts are also built from materials that impose "light building" as principal design feature. This goes bad with basic seasteading needs like big tank volumes and store of big amounts of goods like food, spare parts, tools, fuel, water and similar.
In general a yacht is built for living in a marina and make short trips of no more than a few days crossing open water in favorable weather conditions.
We propose (and already tested) a vehicle that is the technical equivlent of a whale. A very heavy almost completly submerged body wandering worldwide at a speed of 7 knots with incredible low energy needs, capeable to live on resouces and opportunities that come up seasonally at thousands of miles distance.
This vehicle would be about "apartment size" hold a adequate living space for a single family be equally comfortable in harbor or at open sea, avoiding wave movements by cruising most of the time in snorkel mode. It would provide "leave coffee cup on the table comfort" even in the worst imaginable sea conditions.
It would be the "workhorse" of a new generation of ocean explorers and settlers who engage in activities like open water pod fishfarming, tuna rearing, wreck salvage, scuba tourism, mineral explotation, scientific data collection, tourism and similar.
This workhorse would be almost completly independent of infrastructure.
1000m depth rating possible for spheres, 500m for tubular concrete structures
...the (study) results demonstrated the feasibility of near neutrally buoyant concrete structures, having an overall safety factor of three, at depths to 3000 feet for spheres and 1500 feet for cylinders. Greater depths are possible if concretes having a compressive strenght greater than 10.000 psi are used or if negativly buoyant structures are designed.

It would allow to have a lifestyle that is somewhere halfway between a yachtie, the Moken, and Captain Nemo. It allows to participate in existing yachting ambients, use existing harbor and boating infrastructure when available. But on the long run it would work best as mobile complement of oceanic cities as proposed by seasteading.
Business Tycoons like Roman Abramovich show the way – they run global business empires from a yacht as headquarter making their operations country independent, interference independent, free of ruling, taxing, and redtaping of any regulation entity on the planet.
As Peter Thiel puts it: “…In our time, the great task for libertarians is to find an escape from politics in all its forms…” – Peter Thiel
“…there are no truly free places left in our world…” – Peter Thiel
“...Politics is about interfering with other people’s lives without their consent...” – Peter Thiel
Going oceanic like Captain Nemo is the ultimate tool to asure interference freedom for an individual. Doing Business worldwide, staying outside of “jurisdiction” of anybody all the time. Moving from opportunity to opportunity on planetary scale. Mobilis in Mobili. (Captain Nemo’s Motto). From sea you can approch any important city on the planet and ask your local partners to take a 5 minute tender for a meeting in your floating headquarters.
Eventually all business ventures and business leaders will go for “interference freedom” and discover “going oceanic” as the best and most feasible solution available.

The four reasons why going oceanic is the next big thing to come in business:
- The quest for interference freedom
- The quest for mobility
- The quest for oceanic resouces
- The quest for space

Offshoring the megatrend of the century
We live in a world where half of all money is offshore already, tycoons like Abramovic and Branson are "offshoring" their private life and tax declarations, Google is offshoring data centers to get rid of state interference in their business, it can be easyly predicted that at the end all buisness all money all data, will be taken out of interference of politics and states and in one form or another be "offshored".
The final point of the "offshoring movement" is Captain Nemo, doing business worldwide from a yacht that governments and other interferers could not even spot and interfere if they wanted. Eclipse is still visible to everybody every time it goes for a port, it can still be boarded it can still be grounded by authorities in a port. Nautilus is already out of this dilemma - it can not be spotted, it can not be boarded, it can not be grounded in any reasonably possible and feasible operation. It converts the personal living space bubble of a individual into something that is private and off radar in the same way as a numbered offshore account gets money "off radar" and invisible.
The whole idea of offshoring has many times been discredited as a "safe haven for criminal activity" - but this is mere negative propaganda of the proponents of the nanny and big brother state. Privacy is a basic right and going off radar is just implementing your rights in the real world. It is not even new - the people who went to the new world as pioneers "offshored" their religion and business from interference in Europe. Today there is no land left to do that - for going off radar you best go oceanic technology makes it feasible.

Thread (not much info lot of sidetracking) about the captain nemo float out at seasteading.org here
. . .
The technology is there.
Submarine yacht prototype 10 x 2,4 m / 20 tons built in Austira Tirol 1994 by Wilfried Ellmer - tested and dived for many years in a ongoing long term experiment 20 years in the water - no hull maintenace required.
. . . .
This is a Submarine Yacht of 20m x 4,6m / 200 tons Navtech Shipyard Cartagena Colombia - builder Wilfried Ellmer - a upgrade of the prototype above, same hull geometry volum increase factor 10. Room and space equivalent of a 68 squaremeter city apartment, capeable of ocean crossing voyages in complete comfort.

You can say: "building the nautilus?" - have been there have done that. - What we are looking for now is a further upgrade to something like designer fantasy Migaloo for a real world owner in a real world project.
Ocean colonization and Captain Nemo lifstyle are to becoming a reality.
