If you’re mega-giga-rich and looking for a new luxury toy, what do you think about ultra luxury yacht and private jet in one. That’s what Monaco 2050 it is. Designed by Vasily Klyukin, this sci-fi-looking yacht concept features all the sleek styling you’d expect, with the added bonus of a private jet built into the boat’s upper deck. “The upper deck is part of the yacht and an independent aircraft at the same time,” Russian designer explained.
When needed, it will rise upwards with the help of the screws embedded in the wings, becoming a helicopter.
“However, the helicopter on top of the yacht is not an innovation anymore, furthermore it’s difficult to cross the Atlantic or to fly to Hong Kong by helicopter.
“Therefore, after gaining the necessary altitude and speed, it’s possible to turn on the jet engines and even go overseas.”
2050 in the yacht’s name is actually Klyukin’s prediction for when the first of these innovative vessels will emerge for purchase.
“In fact, we shouldn’t really have to wait for 35 years.
“Such a yacht can be started even today: the development of drone technology and the current achievements of the helicopter industry allow the aircraft to reach the desired height, and only then, at the altitude of 1000-2000 meters, it can be switched to the jet engines.
“I’m convinced that I will definitely make it in my life and I will fly by such a yacht.” We’ll see!
