The floating city 3 years on – A superyacht design that will let you take Monaco wherever you go

  • The superyacht concept boasts iconic landmarks from Monaco, including the world famous Hotel de Paris
  • A go kart track to allow passengers to experience the twist and turns of the world famous Monaco Grand Prix
  • The superyacht would cost up to £400m for the world to see it built and would  measure at 155 metres
  • Is actively looking for clients either private or commercial with the vision to realise this new and interesting design direction

Known as the 'The Streets Of Monaco', the superyacht has taken inspiration from the key landmarks of the opulent city-state, including the Hotel de Paris, Port Hercule, Prince's Palace, Loews Hotel, and La Rascasse. It also quite impressively mimics a scaled own version of the world renowned Monaco Grand Prix racetrack

Along with these iconic landmarks the superyacht will possess some more traditional features you would expect to see on a superyacht of this quality of luxury including a helipad, mini submarine, speedboats, jet skis, swimming pools and Jacuzzis.

Rob McPherson, one of the project founders, said, “The theme is based around the Mediterranean principality with the primary focus being the famous grand prix circuit. The idea was to recreate the circuit as a fully-functional kart track able to accommodate three karts side-by-side to allow for plenty of overtaking. By sizing the track in this way it has driven the overall dimensions of the yacht and the placement of the famous landmarks.”

Measuring at 155 metres in length, the superyacht would become one of the largest yachts in the world and definitely one of the most interesting. A superyacht this size would be able to accommodate 16 guests and 70 crew, and would potentially travel at a top speed of 15 knots (17mph).

However it is the owner's apartment that will show off this yachts wealth: It is the most striking section of the superyacht (as you can see on the pictures) and features include a fire place, double height ceiling, office, luxury bedroom, private courtyard, sunroom and a private sundeck with a Jacuzzi/swimming pool.

Rob McPherson added, "The team all have alternate careers working across various sectors including marine, aerospace and interior design. The desire to do something new and interesting as well as a significant interest in storytelling through architecture and environment was the driving forces."

Rob then went on to say, “It took around six months to produce the Monaco concept. I think the team all have their favourite elements but all are incredibly proud of the end result. We have had a significant amount of interest from the general public wanting to take cruises and a number of enquiries for potential commercial applications.

We are actively looking for clients either private or commercial with the vision to realise this new and interesting design direction”
