Sail-World.com : New superyacht look for 2011? It's The Streets of Monaco

New superyacht look for 2011? It's The Streets of Monaco

'Streets of Monaco, complete with go-kart track'    .
This yacht leaves me quite speechless.

However, the latest superyacht design does meet a number of challenges – it successfully spends more of the owner's money than ever before - $1.1 billion.

If ever built (and I sincerely hope not) it will be the most garish design ever dreamed of (or was it a nightmare?), and make the most ostentatious of modern day superyachts look positively classic. What an achievement!


The 155-meter 'The Streets of Monaco' luxury superyacht by Yacht Island Design boasts a design that recreates a small section of the Principality of Monaco, known for the Formula One track and the Monaco Yacht Show. The four storey yacht will certainly help tax exiles and oligarchs, not to mention exiled dictators and successful arms dealers, keep pace in 2011.

Streets of Monaco - owners cabin -  .. .  
The crazy superyacht has been divided into four major external deck spaces. The upper deck features the main swimming pool with swim-in Jacuzzi/bar and the Casino Square, where you have a large glass-bottomed fountain. The yacht comes with its own fully functional go-kart circuit. Rather than decks, the ship will have buildings, including a replica of Monaco's famed Hotel de Paris.

The lucky owners will be able to enjoy their champagne kisses and caviar dreams on a helipad, beside waterfalls and in a restaurant with underwater views.

They can benefit from the sport activities in the yacht’s multi-purpose courtyard, which also doubles as the helipad. There are open sundecks and BBQ facilities, and other communal areas are 'The Oasis' and 'The Grand Atrium.'

Streets of Monaco - The Oasis -  .. .  

The Oasis:
Inspired by the gardens outside the Monaco Casino, The Oasis is the main boarding point and features a central waterfall.

On the lower level, there is the Spa with manicure and hair salon, sauna/steam rooms, a relaxation lounge with a spa pool and a bar, and a gym and café bar with underwater views.




Streets of Monaco - Grand Atrium -  .. .  
The Grand Atrium:
It connects the upper and lower living areas of the yacht. On the lower atrium are the seven guest suites, library, communal office, communal balcony and cinema. The upper atrium takes you to the entertainment area and the owner’s suite.

With top speed of 15 knots, The Streets of Monaco accommodates 16 guests and 70 crew in the utmost comfort. Seven guest suites, a library, a cinema and a communal balcony will make up the lower level, while an entertainment area and the owner's three-story, 4,800-sq.-ft. suite will make up the upper level.

...and who has come up with this fantastic concept? It's U.K.-based Yacht Island Design, in collaboration with BMT Nigel Gee Ltd, one of the world's largest independent design consultancies. They are not even keeping it a secret...
