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.

 The roof of the ship’s top deck isn’t actually a roof—it’s a jet plane. Just in case the speed of the mega yacht isn’t enough to get you to Tokyo in time, hop on the plane and take off from your own private boat/airport.

The artist’s illustrations show three downward blades on the plane’s body and jets for military-grade speed. This means that the plane can hover upward before flying horizontally. With this feature, landing and take-off wouldn’t need runways.

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.
