This Impossible Megayacht Has a Built-In Private Jet

Anyone who's seen The Wolf of Wall Street (or is a billionaire) knows that a yacht with a helicopter on top is pretty much the pinnacle of pimped-out nauticalness -- so it stands to reason that the next logical step would be a yacht with a private jet on top. 

And that's where the Monaco 2050 comes in: designed by Vasily Klyukin, this sci-fi-looking yacht concept features all the sleek styling you'd expect, with the added bonus of a vertical-takeoff-capable private jet built into the boat's upper deck.

If that sounds totally batshit crazy, that's because it kinda is -- Klyukin's previous yacht concepts include ones themed after a Swan, a Mississippi steamboat, and the Manhattan skyline. Yep. In fact, the 2050 in the yacht's name is actually Klyukin's prediction for when the first of these absurd vessels will emerge for purchase.

So basically, you've got 35 years to save up the level of scratch it'll take to own one of these. If they ever actually get made, that is.

Gianni Jaccoma is a staff writer for Thrillist, and heโ€™s pretty sure he designed this yacht as a kid. Follow him to futureboats on Twitter @gjaccoma
