The New Concept in Luxury Yachting: The Themed Yacht

The Streets of Monaco super yacht, by Yacht Island Design, explores bold and daring ideas which challenge the accepted norms within the yachting industry.

VIP Suites 'The Grand Atrium' is the central hub of the yacht, linking the upper and lower living areas. At its centre is a large, ornate spiral staircase which surrounds a waterfall feature that is supplied by the glass bottomed fountain from the garden area above. A small cafe/bar area ensures this feature can be enjoyed while relaxing in comfort. The seven guest suites are located off of the lower atrium level and vary in size, from the more modest 135 m2 suite to the grand 356 m2 VIP suites. All include their own reception room, bathroom, dressing room, bedroom and balcony. The VIP suites have the added luxury of a private office.
The Owner's Apartment At the farthest end of the Atrium lies the Owners Apartment. Connected to all decks via a private lift and spread over 3 floors, it covers a total 1460 square metres of floor space. As well as the usual lounge with a feature fire place and double height ceiling, office, bedroom, bathroom, his/hers dressing rooms, the apartment also benefits from a listening room, private courtyard, sunroom, numerous balconies and private sundeck with a Jacuzzi/swimming pool.
The Oasis 'The Oasis', located aft, acts as the main boarding point for the yacht, an expansive area modelled on the gardens just outside the Monaco Casino. On entering the Oasis, attention is immediately drawn to the central waterfall feature consisting of upper level pools cascading down into the lower pool and Jacuzzi. Radiating from the pool are numerous shrub lined pathways and secluded seating areas. Large exterior windows surround the entire aft section of the oasis, extending to the full double deck height ceiling allowing natural light to flood the space. Located forward on the lower level is the Spa, with manicure and hair salon, private massage suites, sauna/steam rooms and a large relaxation lounge featuring a spa pool with bar. To either side of the spa entrance are located grand marble staircases and elevator access to the mezzanine, with a cafe bar and magnificent views of the gardens below.

If you think that a Carnival Cruise Lines ship is a floating city, just wait until you see this. The creative team at Yacht Island Design has put forth its first proposal: the Principality of Monaco, a SWATH design will provide the beam and sea keeping ability needed to keep this nautical municipality afloat.

Multiple decks contain pools, spas, waterfalls, tennis courts, a lavish private master suite (located in the Prince’s Palace on the port bow) and accommodations for 16 guests and — brace yourself — 70 crew that the company estimates it will take to keep Monaco cruising along at 15 knots. The focal point of the design is “The Streets of Monaco,” which will feature re-creations of the Monaco Grand Prix race circuit (complete with go-carts for racing), the Hotel de Paris, the Casino, Café de Paris and the Lowes Hotel.
