New superyacht design from architect Zaha Hadid looks more like a spacecraft or a whale skeleton than a ship
They looks more like a spacecraft than an ocean-going vessel, but new designs from renowned London-based architect Zaha Hadid for shipyard Blohm+Voss’s superyacht could soon be real.
“Until now, we’ve had to wait for a client to come to us with their idea and design, and there could still be a tendering process,” Dr. Herbert Aly, who runs Blohm+Voss, told Superyacht News. “When we decided to come to market with our own concept, it had to be something truly unexpected and exceptional. That was the basis of this collaboration with Zaha Hadid.”
The concept is called “Unique Circle Yachts” and was presented publicly in London on Tuesday night. The “circle” is made up of five smaller yachts and a central “mothership” superyacht. (Photo: Moka/Zaha Hadid/Blohm+Voss)
