Ahead of this year's Monaco Yacht Show, Russian entrepreneur Vasily Klyukin has dreamed up six amazing luxury boat concepts. While quite a few of the designs are sleek and futuristic, the
'Mississippi' model takes a page right out of the past for its design.
The Mississippi yacht was inspired by the 19th century paddle steamer boats that used to frequent American waters. Naturally, the focal point on this superyacht is the big metal and glass wheel at the midpoint of this 78-meter yacht.
Along with the luxuriously modern interpretation of a Mark Twain-era boat, Klyukin also developed a concept for 'Manhattan,' in a more modern take on America. These and the rest of Klyukin's concept designs will be officially presented at the Monaco Yacht Show 2014 this coming September.
