A new crop of these floating vessels is emerging which employ the design skills of today’s top architects and designers.

Stark and Foster only only some of the traditional designers urning their focus to boats, others include architect John Pawson, Porsche design and Lazzarini Pickering architects. however the most unusual boat in this new category has to be ‘Guilty’ a boat commissioned by Greek billionaire Dakis Joannou.
