Roman Abramovich's £300m Eclipse and the rest of the world's most luxurious yachts

Can a boat simply be too big? Ask your average Saudi or Russian multi-billionaire and they'd probably say of course not. Ask your average mere mortal and they might well beg to differ, and a recent event would underline their point.

The Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich's yacht Eclipse, larger than a Channel ferry and currently the world's biggest private craft, has just been refused entry to the elite aquatic playground of Antibes harbour. The only berth big enough to take it was already occupied, by an 80-metre yacht - half the size of the Russian's - already owned by the Saudi sheikh Prince Aziz al Saud.

For the rest of us, the nearest we'll come to enjoying the mega-rich lifestyle is by chartering a vessel or taking a luxury cruise. But if you've never been on a boat with its own swimming pool and spa, beach deck and cigar bar - not to mention personal submarines and a missile defence system (hello, Roman! OK, it probably does make sense when you're that rich) - we've done the work for you.

When it is built, the Streets of Monaco will not be the world's longest superyacht, (that accolade currently belongs to Roman Abramovich's Eclipse) but the 155-metre beauty would make up the shortfall with breathtaking design, plush water toys and replicas of Monaco's favourite sights and experiences - including the Grand Prix circuit.

The floating city is currently in the planning stages, but as billionaires love competing in 'who has the best toys', it is likely to be snapped up very soon. The boat is said to be so extravagant it has coined a new term - hyper yacht - and will include a massive three-metre-deep swimming pool, submarine, self-contained waterfall, heli-pad (as standard) and miniature versions of the Monte Carlo Casino and Loews Hotel.
