The world has its first billion dollar yacht (3 Photos)

The 500-foot behemoth, oddly reminiscent of an aircraft carrier, is called ‘Streets of Monaco’, and is actually modeled after the European principality. On the top deck will be replicas of famous Monaco landmarks like the Monte Carlo Casino, Hotel de Paris, Cafe de Paris, La Rascasse, and Loews Hotel, as well as a fully functional go-kart circuit based on the Monaco Grand Prix. This thing is so stupidly awesome, it almost doesn't make sense.

    I'll take the Belefonte over this thing any day

  • Not First

    Something tells me the gas I bought this morning helped pay for that.

    • yup

      Well, there is something for your consideration (for all of us). Time to become energy self sufficient.

      Btw, Abramovich didn't earn his money, it was taken from less than minimum wage workers and other folks.

    Seems like a rational way to spend a billion dollars.

  • I am Name

    I'll take it. And have the crew be hot models who will tend to my every whim.

  • Diana Santos

    it's probably cheaper to visit own monaco…but not so cool B)

  • Chaos

    This does not even exist yet.

    • Rämö

      Obviously, as the pictures are clearly computer animated.

      • Jason

        Clearly they are artist renderings, as I could see no movement to be defined as animation, since we're playing Mr. Obvious….

    • Locode

      no shit dumbass

  • Brian Murphy

    I hope it sinks.

    • SweetAwesomeness

      even if it does…i see the damn thing has 2 "spare" orange yachts on this bitch!!! WTF!!!

    I'll take a used pontoon boat and $ 999,999,000.00 in small bills, instead.

    • jamie

      my ransom demand at the bank was, and i quote "a million helicopters and a dollar !"
      the negotiator told me to go fuck myself and they teargassed us !

    Typical annual maintenance fees for a yacht are roughly 10% of the total price. So you're looking at $100,000,000 in costs every freaking year you own the thing.

    But I'm thinking if you pay one billion outright, and then throw another billion dollars in the banks and/or markets, you'll appreciate enough to offset the costs.

    So, you're really only paying about a billion and change for this. Which is totally reasonable. If you were a diabolical super-villain, who owns sharks with freakin' lazer beams on their freakin' heads.

  • Nick

    This shit should be called "The Streets of Wasted Cash." Ridonkulous!

  • turbosmurf

    Roman Abramovich already has a $1.2 billion yacht.

    • yup

      It's a phallus fight par exellence. His yacht is 1 m longer than that of the Saudi prince. I'm sure there are many plans to top this.

      Tbh, this thing doesn't look high water ready. Probably only a design sketch, reminds me off an aircraft carrier.

      • obvi

        his boat looks nothing like this…. ill take this boat… but it has to be more than a billion

  • EMB

    Ill fucking torpedo that thing!

  • sceneitB4

    The world already has one. Roman Abramovich, one of the richest people on the planet, took delivery of his private yacht worth 1.2 billion. c'est la vie.

    • Why Not?

      la vie

  • 50-50

    How the hell am I supposed to play tennis with a damn helicopter in my way?

  • Nickincollege

    A billion dollars and only 500 feet? If it is a European made yacht I guess that would explain it.

    • Vince

      If it were European made, it would be in meters now, wouldn't it?

    • videologic

      well im guessing the cost is just to do with length, but also the fact that it has a monte carlo replica on top

  • MattFoley

    Bill Gates has 50 billion dollars. How come he doesn't have one of those?

    As Louis CK said, if I had 50 billion dollars, I would buy every major league baseball team and make them all wear dresses, just for the sake of it.

    • fnaah

      becuse he's now a philanthropist, not a douchebag.

      • MattFoley

        Right, he's a philanthropist. And how is the guy that argues with a comedian called?

  • Naz1962

    Only three pictures??

  • Maurice

    I call bullshit.

  • j-man85

  • Babyfart McGeezax

  • tommybhoy

  • RobertC

    Nah, let's just build a Yacht.

  • ruso

    Boats are shaped like boats for a reason, That thing seems unsafe to me.
