To perform this project I waited the construction of the new harbor in
the Condamine port (see the description here below). Now the new harbor
is fixed, the "Rena" ship that I choice (just 98 meters) can
stay in very calm water. This is a mandatory element to guarantee a comfortable
and perfect accommodation of the clients of the hotel ship.
The "Rena" ship, will be the first cruise ship under the Monaco
flag, certainly the S.A.S. Prince Ranier and his family, will be on board
for the opening party. This, I suppose will attract all the international
media and will become the event of the French Riviera.
• Considering the total profit is generated inside the Monte Carlo territory,
no taxes will be applied on the profit.
• The Principality are looking to increase the numbers of 3 *** room in
order to satisfy the new client's need, especially for the Grimaldi Forum
congress. The ship will be a perfect solution for many of these participants.
• The Monaco port, will be totally lifted with new look and certainly
will become one of the major attraction of Monte-Carlo.
• The Monaco port is the most secured harbor in the world, controlled
by police cameras and under a continue security inspections. The transportation
facilities (public elevators, bus, taxi and promenade) will easy connect
the port central position to any of the major points of the Principality.
• The restaurants, boutique and discotheque will welcome also the local
customers (tourist and residents).
• In case of very special needs, the ship can be moved to Cannes (film
festival) or San Remo (music festival).
• After the acquisition of the ship, the Promoter, will start the hotel
resort activity after few months (4)
• To reach the budget target, of a net profit of about € 3.200.000 , the
project need to attract just 7% of the night occupation passed on the
4**** hotels in Monaco during the year 2001. Considering that the calculated
prices are much lower of the actual applicable prices for the same hotel
category, I estimate that reach this economic result will be easy.
• The project will also guaranty to the Government treasury a "nice"
economic return as : 2.000.000 of TVA for the ship naturalization; a yearly
TVA of about 650.000 €; a port fees of about 110.000 € and 58
