$1bn for a floating city

A LAVISH new yacht recreating the billionaire's playground of Monaco is set to become the world's most expensive.

Travelers will also spot waterfalls, a swim-in Jacuzzi-bar, helicopters and submarines on board.

Instead of traditional decks the one-of-a-kind ship will have buildings, and instead of a swimming platform it will have a beach. The one-of a kind ship could be home to 16 guests and 70 crew with the main apartment spread over three floors and 445 sq m.

The ship will exceed the $1 billion price tag reportedly paid by Roman Abramovich for his Eclipse yacht.
