Vasily Klyukin's Luxury Boat Design Takes the Shape of Manhattan

When a luxury boat design looks and runs like just about any other yacht out there, it hardly seems desirable anymore. However, Russian entrepreneur Vasily Klyukin has dreamed up six concept yachts that are way more artful and interesting than usual.

This particular design is for Klyukin's 'Manhattan' yacht, which takes inspiration from the iconic New York City skyline. The whole boat lights up like its own little city and built right into the boat is a replica of the Empire State Building—is there anything more decadent than having your very own version of a New York landmark on a boat? As well as looking like a city, the superyacht probably has room for the entire population of one.

Klyukin's concept yachts will be officially presented at the Monaco Yacht Show 2014 in September.
