Much respect to Yacht Island Design for musing: “What if Monaco were portable?” That’s the inspiration behind the Streets of Monaco Superyacht.
The 500-foot vessel is lined with scale versions of Monaco’s most iconic buildings, including the Monte Carlo Casino and the Grand Prix course. (Which has been converted into a go-kart course.)
“It is basically a floating city,” company director Rob McPherson told us. “The design theme called for a unique yacht that reflected the style and sophistication of the principality.”
In other words, they threw out any notion of “less is more.” Designers plan to connect the upper and lower living areas of the yacht with a grand atrium.
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.
