Chateau Robida

Chateau Robida

By Carmen

In the wake of HMS Dreadnought’s dominance over all earlier battleships, the French Navy was forced to decommission a great number of naval vessels, including those recently built with obsolete main armament.

Inspired by the works of Victorian-era illustrator Albert Robida, a private organization purchased a decommissioned battleship hull and converted it into a floating fortress for resort use.

Christened the Chateau de Robida, this 164 meter pre-dreadnought was converted into a floating monument celebrating French heritage and architecture. Finished in alternate bands of snow white and Ravenna gold, and topped with a miniature representation of the Eiffel Tower, the vessel would not be out of place in a Victorian fairy tale.

In addition to the restaurant Le Petit Eiffel, the resort ship also plays host to an open-air engagement party, 3 rose gardens, a shopping mall, two observation towers, and a memorial park.

As a museum of the pre-dreadnought age, Chateau Robida is also equipped with various exhibition weaponry open to the public including a 340mm (13.4″) main battery, 203mm turrets and 164mm casemates representative of period warships.

Courtesy of a British inventor’s contribution the ship is also equipped with experimental radio navigation hardware plus hidden launch tubes for aerial torpedoes.

  • PID issues with my new thrustercraft (wobbling) November 20, 2017
    Hello, Recently, I began working on a forward-broadsiding thrustercraft. After some hard work, I managed to get it to stay relatively flat as it attacked the enemy, but the thrustercraft still had issues tilting a little to one side as it gained altitude (after spawning) and wobbling slightly as it moved. Looking at the roll […]
