Zaha Hadid’z Z Boat

Zaha Hadid has been commissioned by London-based art dealer and writer Kenny Schachter to design a limited edition speedboat for his own personal use. The 8-meter-long ‘Z boat’ will be manufactured by French manufacturer Shoreteam, who will produce just 12 of them to go on sale in early 2013.

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.’
