Architect Zaha Hadid Designs Gorgeous Bio-Organic Rich Man's Superyacht

By Gary Cutlack on at

Here's one for our oil-rich oligarch readers. Architect Zaha Hadid, who usually does posh bendy buildings like the lovely London 2012 aquatics centre, has had a go at doing a yacht. It's part boat, part sci-fi bio-engineered spaceship.

The yacht design was commissioned by boat builder to the elite Blohm + Voss, which has a history of creating bespoke cruisers for the filthiest and richest of the filthy rich. Hadid's design wouldn't look out of place being piloted around Saturn by the Vorlons from Babylon 5, or parked next to whatever Roman Abramovich is currently having someone captain for him down in Monaco.
