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.

  • Is this normal? February 25, 2018
    I'm currently playing Adventure Mode and have traveled through a lot of green gates so I'm in a really easy place (something like 0.15). At any rate, I keep getting killed by missile explosions through the metal walls of my ship. I also noticed that components inside my ship will turn black as though partially […]

    I've finally decided that rather than playing a Neter campaign, I'm going to make my own world based upon the eras between the age of steam up to the introduction of dreadnought. As such, here's the earliest ship class I've built: I present to you the Buzzard class of wooden paddle-driven frigates. Buzzard Class Type: […]

    The game does not seem to recognize that the two metre lightweight alloy block is actually two metres long. Graphically, the block takes up as much space as it says it does, but I could place blocks inside of the other part of the beam. The other block in the beam counts as a leak […]
