Pritzker prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid has collaborated with renowned Hamburg-based shipbuilders Blohm+Voss to design a new superyacht, a design informed by fluid dynamics and underwater ecosystems.

The design concept, launched at the latest exhibition of Zaha Hadid’s work at the David Gill Gallery in London, is based around a sculptural form for a master prototype conceived for a 128m yacht. “The overall design is informed by fluid dynamics and underwater ecosystems, with hydrodynamic research informing the design of the hull.” says Blohm+Voss.

“The exoskeleton structure of the upper section is an interwoven network of supports that vary in thickness and lend a natural aesthetic to the yacht’s external appearance; evoking the organic structural systems found in natural marine formations. This exoskeleton connects the various levels and decks of the ship seamlessly via expressive diagonals. Whereas traditional yacht designs adhere to a strict horizontal order, Hadid has created an intense connectivity between the various decks and elements of the design. The fluid design language of the master prototype has been applied to subsequent variations of the Unique Circle Yachts 90m yacht concepts, creating a coherent design with the highest correlation between the various design options.”
