According to report reaching oyogist.com, this 500-foot behemoth known as the ‘Streets of Monaco’ was first conceptualized in 2011 by UK yacht designers, Yacht Island Design. Much respect to Yacht Island Design for musing: “What if Monaco were portable?” That’s the inspiration behind the Streets of Monaco Superyacht.
On the top deck will be replicas of famous Monaco landmarks like the Monte Carlo Casino, Hotel de Paris, Cafe de Paris, La Rascasse, and Loews Hotel, as well as a fully functional go-kart circuit based on the Monaco Grand Prix race track. Other extravagant bells and whistles include multiple swimming pools, a swim-in Jacuzzi bar, a multi-use court for tennis and basketball, a dance hall, a spa with a hair salon, and enough space to accommodate 16 guests and 70 staff. And don’t forget the submarine and helipad.
There is, of course, no guarantee that Streets of Monaco will ever make it into the water. First, a client with a big enough wallet needs to come forward. “This is just a concept at this point”, said Scott Poxon, director of Yacht Island Design. “That said, there is a notable amount of detail in place. It would need a commission in order to finalize design requirements of the client and to commence the construction”. Poxon also added that various newspapers have estimated that the yacht would cost around $1 Billion to construct.
