A mega yacht that would be the biggest private vessel ever built would stretch the length of more than two football fields and contain its own casino and art galleries, under new plans.
The colossal £600m ‘Valkyrie Project’ stretches an impressive 229 metres (750ft) – the same as 24 buses parked end-to-end.
This would smash the record currently held by the superyacht Azzam which belongs to president of the United Arab Emirates, Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and measures 180 metres (590ft).
The floating leviathan could carry an incredible 52 guests and 92 crew members including an entire deck just for the owner and would travel at a comfortable speed of 25 knots.
It would also be equipped with its own casino, theatres, restaurants and even art galleries.
However, rather than an oligarch’s play thing, the designer claims he wants the vessel to be used more like a ‘floating entertainment hub’ which the public could enjoy.
The mammoth project is the brainchild of Chulhun Park who spent eight months working with yacht designers Palmer Johnson as part of his university course.
Mr Park, 36, from Seoul, South Korea, said the vessel would be made from aluminium and a specially made carbon-fibre structure.
He said: ‘Valkyrie project was my thesis project supported by Palmer Johnson at Royal College of Art in London. It took eight months to design her.
‘I tried to manipulate the structure’s surface skin and create non-rectilinear shapes which appear to distort and dislocate elements of shape.
‘When I decided to be a yacht designer, I realized that most yachts are white coloured and stacked up like wedding cakes.
‘Therefore, I was determined to design a very unique looking yacht which would stand out of the fleet.
‘My main goal of designing Valkyrie project was to build a floating entertainment hub, a 229m-long yacht which the public could come onto and enjoy the benefits.
‘Most people consider superyachts to be an exclusive property for billionaires to show off their wealth.
‘However, what if we create floating architecture to be used by everyone.
‘I put a huge amount of open space on the yacht, including a casino, theatre, ocean mall, restaurants and exhibition halls, all to satisfy visitors’ needs and create a profit.
‘To create Valkyrie it would cost around $800 million. I have had a few interesting offers, but no contracts have been sighed yet.
‘If she is eventually built, she would be the longest superyacht ever made.’
