“Fluid dynamics and underwater ecosystems inform the organic shape of the luxury boat, with hydrodynamic research having played a larger role in the development of its hull.”

Zaha Hadid explains:



“As a dynamic object that moves in dynamic environments, the design of a yacht must incorporate additional parameters beyond those for architecture – which all become much more extreme on water. Each yacht is an engineered platform that integrates specific hydrodynamic and structural demands together with the highest levels of comfort, spatial quality and safety.”
