Unique Circle Yachts
The design concept is based around the sculptural form of a master prototype conceived for a 128m yacht. Whereas traditional yacht designs adhere to a strict horizontal order, this exoskeleton creates an intense connectivity between the various decks and elements of the design.
The 90m JAZZ yacht is the first of the five unique Circle Yachts that has been technically specified and detailed by the naval architects at Blohm+Voss. In addition to JAZZ, four further 90m yachts have been designed to fulfill the different requirements and individual requests of their designated owners. Each design will vary in layout according to the owner’s preferences.
“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.” explains Zaha Hadid.
Zaha Hadid Architects and Blohm+Voss have transformed yacht design; creating an innovative concept and developing this vision into a fully seaworthy prototype that offers dynamic new possibilities for naval architecture.
