American art dealer Kenny Schachter has commissioned British architect and Pritzker Prize winner Zaha Hadid to create this all black, 7.5 meter vessel, the limited edition Z Boat. Only 12 boats and 4 prototypes will be built and ready for your purchasing in 2013. The boats will be manufactured in France by Shoreteam.
“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.” – Zaha Hadid Architects
