Zaha Hadid's Yacht Design is Very Elitist

Zaha Hadid's architectural skills are now applied to yacht design, specifically, the superyacht. Working closely with German shipyard Blohm + Voss, Hadid's concept embraces six yachts with five separately designed 90m yachts spawned from a 128m "mothership."

The mothership is avant-garde in design with woven windows and a slicked back exterior that sets it apart from contemporary ships. This type of design has been flourishing from Hadid's studio for decades and with extensive composite materials, this ship offers endless opportunities for alternative design. The sleekness of the boat flows effortlessly through the water and is accessed only by some elites.

Hadid's transfer of skills from cars, wine bottles, vases and jewelry to boats transfer really well and one can only hope to see more similar designs pop up in the future.
