The Z Boat

[widgetkit id=3757]

Zaha Hadid has been commissioned by Kenny Schachter to design a limited edition carbon fibre speedboat

The Z Boat is 8 metres in length and is made from fibreglass and carbon fibre. Only 12 Z Boats will be manufactured by shoreteam with the boats priced at around €375,000 and available in a range of colours.

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.

The Z Boats should go on sale in the early part of 2013
