Doing a little searching revealed that 5 years ago the studios were $825K.

It apparently went all the way up to $7M. The FAQ on the ship's website says there are additional fees which aren't specified (including ship maintenance).

Today it probably is more.

Depending on the annual fees this might be affordable. You basically buy a house (the apartment) and then have upkeep fees (for the ship instead of plumbing and lawns). If it's like a lot of IL/AL apartments that require a huge up-front fee and then a monthly rent, maybe not so affordable.
