Billionaire Designs a Concept Yacht with a Private Jet

1

Just owning Helicopters is passé. Even cruising along the Caribbean in a fancy yacht with a helipad mustn’t be new to elite travellers. But, having a yacht that comes with its own private jet is certainly something few have heard of. Billionaire Russian yacht designer Vasily Klyukin is here to make this possible.

Opulent super yachts come with a host of additions like cinema halls, swimming pools, helipads, spas, gymnasiums and even mini-submarines. But this futuristic concept yacht by Russian billionaire designer Vasily Klyukin breaks all norms of luxury. It offers a separate jet facility atop the vessel to travel short distances.

Read on to find out more about it.

Russian businessman and Monaco resident Vasily Klyukin is known for his futuristic yacht and jet designs. He is the co-founder of Russia’s Sovcombank and seeks to change the future of yachting.

The vessel is called Monaco 2050 keeping in mind that it will be an industry standard in the next 35 years. It offers a whole new way to celebrities and CEOs who travel across cities. In fact, they can fly to the city for work and return to the family for a vacation within hours.

While helicopters are known to take off vertically, jets are yet to reach that level of instant vertical flight. However, this concept is being explored by the military since the late 1960s with the Harrier Jump Jet, and recently the Boeing’s new 787 Dreamliner was seen attempting a near-vertical ascent in Washington

The Monaco 2050 will feature a jet plane and a helicopter that can take off and land like a Harrier Jump Jet or F-35 fighter plane.

The yacht will feature two or three levels and will be equipped with the latest amenities such as a pool, lounging area and much more.

Currently, however, it seems like the yacht will see the light of the day in the distant future. But Klyukin hopes to inspire engineers and designers to work on this design and make it a reality.
