Kenny Schachter commissions the Z Boat
Zaha Hadid has been commissioned by US art dealer Kenny Schachter to design a limited edition speedboat. The 8-meter long vessel, dubbed “Z Boat” will be manufactured by Shoreteam, who will produce a limited run of twelve to go on sale in early 2013.
From the makers:
“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.”
