Architect¬†Zaha Hadid¬†will design a limited edition speedboat for American art dealer¬†Kenny Schachter.¬†The 7.5 metre long vessel, named Z Boat,¬†will feature an asymmetric¬†body made from fibreglass.
French boat builders¬†Shoreteam¬†will produce just 12 of the boats, due for release in 2013.

Here‚Äôs some information from Schachter‚Äôs website Rove and a few technical details from Zaha Hadid Architects:
These are the first pictures of the Z. Boat ‚Äì an 8m-long motorboat designed by Zaha Hadid for Kenny Schachter.¬†The limited production vessel is being built by Shoreteam in France and the first seaworthy boat is due for release in spring next year (2013).
‚ÄúThe 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.‚Äù
