Z for Zaha Hadid: Limited Edition Z-Boat

Z For Zaha Hadid Limited Edition Z Boat  1

Visionary designer and award-winning architect Zaha Hadid has created a futuristic motorboat with a very superhero monicker, the Z-Boat. The eight-meter vessel is fabricated from fiberglass and carbon fiber, with interiors crafted from new vinyl materials, and will be offered in a limited edition of 12, each priced at about US$457,000.

In a press statement released by French firm Shoreteam, which is charged with building the Z-Boat, the team explains the raison d'etre behind the cutting-edge yacht:  “The idea is to think of vessels or 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.”

Current plans are to produce the boat in a range of colors, including white, slate gray and blue, as well as the prototype in black.
