If you're wealthy enough you can have a luxury speed boat built exclusively for you, customized just the way you like it. Kenny Schachter, London-based art dealer and writer, is one of the more recent to get everything he always wanted out of a boat thanks to world-renowned architect Zaha Hadid. However, this 8-metre motor "Z-Boat" will be available in a series of 12 limited edition models for €375,000 each (around $484,800), so you have a chance to snatch one for yourself.

The Z-Boat's prototype is a matte black made from fiberglass and carbon fibre, and a geometric design that's very asymmetrical. While the black certainly gives in a dangerous feel, there are apparently plans to release the boats in other colors, including blue, white, and grey. The Z-Boat's speed hasn't been announced yet but Schachter has said that it would be "as high a spec as customers dare to go and is safe to maintain."

In a recent press release by Schachter and the French firm Shoreteam (who is building the boat), it was stated that "“the idea is to think of vessels or vehicles as highly individualistic expressions of art, architecture and design, reflecting the edge of what is possible using the most advanced means.”
