Zaha Hadid Z-boat will be Batman’s next purchase

Posted July 17, 2012 by Stuff Staff in Life Etc

Looks like Batman’s got himself a boat
Not quite – this is the Z-boat, an eight-metre vessel designed by architect Zaha Hadid for art dealer Kenny Schachter.

Well it’s certainly a work of art…
It is indeed – that asymmetric angular form is made from fibreglass and carbon fiber, while the interior will be made from a “vinyl material new to the market.”

Very nice, but it’s a one-off, right?
Not quite – French boat builder Shoreteam is making 12 Z-boats, which will be available in a range of colours including white, grey and blue. That scarcity means that the price will be through the roof, though – the boats are going on sale upwards of US$500,000 a pop.
