Where form meets function

Pritzker prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid has designed a fleet of futuristic superyachts in collaboration with German shipbuilders Blohm + Voss. A concept for a 128-meter yacht was created as the central design with a series of five smaller vessels titled “The Unique Circle Yachts” modeled after it. A 90-meter yacht named “Jazz” is the first workable design, having been pared down to meet technical specifications for ocean crossings. The diagonal lattice feature covering the yachts is unlike anything else in ship design, though it remains to be seen whether the innovative creations will be made into actual prototypes.
