Russian billionaire banker and architect Vasily Klyukin has revealed designs for White Sails Hospital & Spa, a four-story skyscraper in the shape of a yacht.

The hospital will take care of the good mood and the healthy spirit. Visitors will feel themselves more like the guests during the cruise, rather than patients.
