Just when you thought you’d seen it all when it comes to the world of yachts, the folks atYacht Island Design have introduced the immaculate Streets of Monaco Superyacht.
Modeled after the city-state where billionaires go to play, this thing has everything one could ever dream of – and then some. This 500-foot vessel has been lined with scaled down versions of Monaco’s most famous buildings from the Monte Carlo Casino all the way to the Grand Prix course. The latter which happens to double as a go-kart course for auto enthusiasts. Other amenities include multiple swimming pools, library, cafes, spa, a basketball/tennis court that serves as helipad for your private chopper, parking spaces for smaller yachts, and even comes with your very own submarine to let you explore the depths of the ocean as well.
It even has a platform that holds smaller yachts in case prospective owners need something a little nippier to get around in. The most mind-bending feature is the Monaco Grand Prix-inspired go-kart track complete with tunnel complex which runs around the deck.
But for the designers the centrepiece of the incredible ship is The Atrium, which links the upper and lower living areas. The Atrium has seven guest suites which all include their own reception room, bathroom, dressing room, bedroom and balcony.
Of course something this massive can’t function on a skeleton crew, which is why in addition to accommodations for 16 guests (includes VIP suites measuring in at 3,800 square feet), there is also plenty of room for your staff of 70 crew members, all that would cost the owner tens of millions to run each year.
And the billionaire owner would get the benefit of the main apartment which is spread over three floors, sprawling an amazing 4,800sq ft – the size of a luxury penthouse. The four-deck yacht will also have BBQ facilities dotted around the deck as well as a mini waterfall and cafe bar with underwater views.
While only at a design stage, The Streets Of Monaco would likely exceed the £665 million price-tag rumoured to be paid by Roman Abramovich for his ‘Eclipse’ yacht to become the world’s most expensive personal boat. At 500ft, The Streets of Monaco is 25ft shorter than the Chelsea owner’s super-yacht but Abramovich would undoubtedly be envious of the Monaco’s fully functional kart circuit.
Now that the design has been completed, the only question remaining for Yacht Island Design is whether they can find a billionaire with enough spare change to turn it into a reality.
