Future Megayachts May Cruise Skies and Seas
The Monaco 2050 is an opulent concept yacht that hints at a coming bridge between water and air
Yachts are reserved for the rich and of course, no expense is spared. Vasily Klyukin’s series of megayacht concepts offer an exciting view of the future yacht and a number of them are ready to conquer both air and sky.
Named after a tiny country popular among the yacht-owning and heavily monied, Monaco 2050 is as flashy as it is ambitious. In a black, white and red theme, it will definitely steal glances when out at sea. Streamlined and sporty, it packs an even greater feature for the skies.
Too futuristic? Vertical take-off/landing tech is already in use in Lockheed Martin’s F-35 fighter planes.
The Monaco 2050 is the latest edition to a series of flashy yachts. This includes a Manhattan concept yacht mimics the eponymous skyline. Another future yacht which is reminiscent of Lego is actually named after Mondrian, the popular artist who also inspired Yves St Laurent.
Klyukin is a Russian-born businessman and now a resident of the Principality of Monaco. Klyukin is noted to be the first potential space tourist from Monaco after purchasing a Virigin Galactic flight from the AmFar charity auction.
His aesthetic is undeniably rich and his portfolio involves stand-out building designs with nothing less than a skyscraper-sized leg in fishnet stockings and killer heels.
