Take your own island out with you on your next cruise. The next step in uber-luxe living is here with this superyacht concept that has recreated a small section of the Principality of Monaco (the part that’s known for its Formula One track and the Monaco Yacht Show). And one of the coolest features this superyacht boasts has to be a fully functional go-kart circuit.
The brainchild of Yacht Island Design and BMT Nigel Gee, the 155-meter “The Streets of Monaco” yacht is like a floating island that incorporates land-based architecture into its design. It can reach a top speed of 15 knots, and can pamper 16 guests and hold 70 crew members.
Once onboard The Streets of Monaco, you’ll see that it’s been divided into four major external deck spaces.
On the upper deck is where you’ll find the main swimming pool with swim-in Jacuzzi/bar and the Casino Square, as well as a large glass-bottomed fountain. You can challenge your friends to a game of hoops on the multi-purpose courtyard (which also doubles as a helipad). When you want to enjoy some down time, take it easy on the open sundecks or cook up some burgers using the BBQ facilities.
But if you’re still not impressed, head on over to “The Oasis” and “The Grand Atrium” communal areas. The Oasis is inspired by gardens outside the Monaco Casino, and features a central waterfall. It also comes with a 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.
The Grad Atrium sections connects the upper and lower living areas, and features seven guest suites, library, a communal office, a communal balcony, cinema, entertainment area and the owner’s suite.
