Melbourne, Jan 17 (ANI): Ever thought of a yacht having buildings, helicopters, submarines and a beach? Well, you could take a ride in one such yacht worth a billion dollars-the most expensive ever-very soon.
The staggering 155-metre Streets of Monaco yacht is expected to cost over 1.1 billion dollars to build and is modelled on a section of Monte Carlo.
Currently in the design stage, the super-ship will feature smaller versions of the state's famous landmarks such as the Monte Carlo Casino and racetrack, as well as swimming pools, tennis courts, a cinema, a go-kart track and a Hotel de Paris.Instead of traditional decks the one-of-a-kind ship will have buildings, and instead of a swimming platform it will have a beach. Travellers would also be able to enjoy spot waterfalls, a swim-in Jacuzzi-bar, helicopters and submarines on board.
Yacht Island Design has designed the yacht, that could be home to 16 guests and 70 crew with the main apartment spread over three floors and 445 square metres.
Linking upper and lower living areas is the Atrium-featuring seven guest suites, a bathroom, bedroom, dressing room, reception and balcony.
"It is basically a floating city," News.com.au quoted company director Rob McPherson, as saying.
"The design theme called for a unique yacht that reflected the style and sophistication of the principality.
"We want to create a truly unique environment that could take the principality of Monaco to the ocean," he added. (ANI)
