INSANE? The photo you above is just a mockup. But even with something just dreamed up in the mind of some crazed super yacht designer, you have to admit that it looks disturbingly appealing, in a Dubai-meets-Donald gawdy kind of way…..
This creation is called “The Streets of Monaco“, and is based off Monaco. Imiagine other versions based on your favourite part of the world: Capri, Manhattan, Rio, St Barth’s….. On the main four decks, you’ll find various pools, a swim-up bar, a jacuzzi, a replica of Casino Square, a courtyard and a large BBQ area. Oh, and a go kart circuit. The main boarding deck features a sauna, spa, manicure, gym, hairdresser, care and a relaxation lounge with indoor bar/pool.
Of course there is a cigar lounge, library, cinema wine cellar, casino, dining room and dance hall. Would Candy Spelling insist on the addition of a gift wrap room?
While it hasn’t been built (or even purchased), chances are someone, somewhere in the world is counting their oil profits (or Facebook over-valuation-profits) and seriously considering where they’d park this 155 meter (close to 500ft!)vessel. Maybe the most appealing aspect of a product like this would be it’s tax-free status? Those savings alone could easily pay for the entire product for the clientele this would appeal to.
Designed by Yacht Island Design in cooproration with BMT Nigel Gee. No price was mentioned but we expect it to be slightly higher than a penthouse at 15 Central Park West….
