40 times bigger than the White House – The largest privately held island in the Bahamas is on sale for $19.5 million

If you’d like to buy a privately held island – the largest of its kind in the Bahamas – here’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to do so! Up for grabs is St. Andrews a.k.a. the Little Ragged Island with an estimated opening bid of $19.5 million.

Spanning across 730-acre of undeveloped land, it includes deep-water access and enough space for large ships to pull up. It boasts fresh spring drinking water with access for swimming among the reefs as well as bone-fishing for snapper, barracuda, and more.

Only a 10-minute boat ride from the dock at nearby Duncan Town, the island (the southernmost island in the 100-mile Ragged Island chain of inlets) is large enough to be converted into a sprawling private estate or resort.

Commenting on the sale, Chad Roffers, Chairman of Concierge Auctions ( that will be handling it) said, “As our largest private island sale since Innocence Island, this immaculate 730-acre island is a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it opportunity,” he further added, “Matching sellers of one-of-a-kind properties with the most capable buyers on the planet has been core to what we do every day, and this private paradise is a perfectly poised property that allows bidders to name their own price. There’s no other opportunity quite like this one.”

The island will be auctioned online between March 26-31st by ConciergeAuctions.com
