Sail-World.com : Is it a bird? Is it a fish? No, it's superyacht JAZZ.
Is it a bird? Is it a fish? No, it's superyacht JAZZ.


'JAZZ 1'    .

Is it a bird? Is it a fish? No, it's just the latest superyacht design, JAZZ. Pritzker prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid has collaborated with Hamburg-based shipbuilders Blohm+Voss to design this new superyacht. The design concept was launched at the latest exhibition of Zaha Hadid’s work at the David Gill Gallery in London.

Well the 'fish' idea was slightly right... the designers say that the overall design is informed by 'fluid dynamics and underwater ecosystems', with hydrodynamic research informing the design of the hull. The exoskeleton structure of the upper section is an interwoven network of supports that vary in thickness evoking the organic structural systems found in natural marine formations.

This exoskeleton connects the various levels and decks of the ship seamlessly. 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.

JAZZ 2 -  .. .  

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. There are further technical refinements to address the specifications required for ocean crossings.

In addition to JAZZ, four further 90m yachts have been designed to fulfil the different requirements and individual requests of their designated owners. Each design will vary in layout according to the owner’s preferences.

The design process was very much a collaborative one, with Blohm+Voss and ZHA working together to address the practical challenges of designing a yacht while remaining true to the strong iterative design language of the master prototype.

The resulting designs are the synergy of Hadid’s design vision and the technical expertise of Blohm+Voss, allowing a flexibility and customisation in the eventual design of the yacht.

'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. The yacht is an engineered platform that integrates specific hydrodynamic and structural demands together with the highest levels of comfort, spatial quality and safety.' explained Zaha Hadid.

The big question is, 'Who will be the first purchaser?'
