Legendary architect Zaha Hadid was recently commissioned by American art dealer Kenny Schacter to design a limited edition speedboat. Dubbed the 'Z-boat', the 7.5 metre long vessel will be manufactured by Shoreteam in France, with only 12 boats being produced and released in Spring 2013. Constructed from fiberglass and featuring Hadid's signature aesthetic, the asymmetrical body design is incredibly striking.
Of the design the architect states:
“The asymmetrical design is sculptural in appearance while practically affording more seating accommodations. In a sense, the bespoke boat is as much a work of art as a Cisitalia sports car in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The idea is to think of vessels and vehicles as highly individualistic expressions of art, architecture and design reflecting the edge of what is possible using the most advanced means, including materials, software systems and methods of fabrication."
