      Largest island in Bahamas sold at auction

      If you were looking to buy a private island, you missed out on one.

      The largest privately-owned island in the Bahamas sold at auction for $17 million Tuesday.

      That's less than the $55 million list price of the island during a previous sale that failed to find a buyer.

      Here's what the new owner has: 681 acres, a private airstrip with its own airport code, and a 5,000 square foot home.
