The Ultra Extravagant
British designers have produced plans to recreate Europe's most notorious billionaire hangout with scaled down little versions of famous landmarks such as the Monte Carlo Casino and it’s incredible water feature, Café de Paris, Hotel de Paris, and even the popular Grand Prix course, which will be a go-kart course wrapped around the deck. The super extravagant “Streets of Monaco” yacht is only in design stage and being designed by Derbyshire-based Yacht Island Design.
The design doesn’t leave anything out and no expenses are spared. It will include a platform on the lower level that will hold smaller yachts just in case prospective owners need something smaller and quicker to get around in, such as speedboats. And if speedboats aren't desired, there is a helicopter pad as well.
The Company director Rob McPherson said: “The design theme called for a unique yacht that reflected the style and sophistication of the owner. 'We want to create a truly unique environment that could take the principality of Monaco to the ocean.”
The four-deck super yacht will have multiple swimming pools, BBQ facilities, a mini waterfall, cafe bar with underwater views, a swim up Jacuzzi bar, a multi-use sports court for tennis and basketball that will double as a helipad.
The center of the incredible 505 ft ship is the grand Atrium, which links the upper and lower living areas. The Atrium has seven guest suites, and each suite has it own reception room, walk-in dressing room, bathroom, bedroom and balcony overlooking the vast sea. It has an area called the Oasis, Inspired by the gardens outside of the Monaco Casino, the Oasis is the main boarding area and features a beautiful waterfall. The lower level of the yacht is a luxury Spa, complete with a hair and nail salon, sauna and steam rooms, and a spa pool. The ultra-extravagant Streets of Monaco yacht will house 16 guests and a crew of 70.
The billionaire owner will have the prize bedroom of the main master suite, which is spread over three floors, has an amazing 4,800sq ft, the size of a luxury penthouse. On this floor is the entertainment area as well. The proud owner will also have the expense of millions of dollars a year that it will cost to run the yacht.
While only at design stage, and estimated cost to build is 1.2 billion dollars, which exceeds the $1 billion dollar price tag that reportedly was paid by billionaire and Chelsea football club owner, Roman Abramovich for his Eclipse yacht, which he currently owns and is the largest and most expensive yacht. Oddly, it will still be the largest yacht because the Streets of Monaco will be 25 feet shorter.
The next curious question will be; who’s the billionaire that's going to buy the “Streets of Monaco”?
