DailyMail: With its sleek weave of intertwining curves and its spacecraft-like design, it looks more akin to Beijing’s famous ‘Bird’s Nest’ Olympic stadium than something that would take to the open water. But this is the superyacht of the future, likely to become the latest plaything for the uber-rich and the envy of everyone else who will be unable to afford it. This is the first yacht designed by award-winning architect Dame Zaha Hadid, the brains behind the iconic Aquatics Centre built in London for last summer’s Olympics. The Iraqi-born British-based architect designed a family of the futuristic superyachts for German shipbuilders Blohm+Voss. The upper mesh structure – which has been compared to a skeleton – of the stunning design connects the different decks of the 90m vessels. Dwarfing the five ‘smaller’ yachts is a design for a 128m ‘mothership’. The first of the smaller designs, which will be known as the Jazz, has been transformed into a fully workable design. It combines a sharp torpedo-like prow with a more open back. The rest of the fleet will be customised according to their owner’s desires. 

 

This thing looks pretty sick. However, I’m still holding out for this little guy:
