The Art Of Boat Building

I have no idea why someone would want to build a boat like this but it made me laugh. I say good on him, I love the talent of someone who thinks outside the box.


French artist Julien Berthier has designed a fully functional boat to look as if it is sinking. The 6.5m (21ft) yacht was cut in half with a new keel and motor added so it remains in the sinking position while being fully functional. He describes it as “the permanent and mobile image of a wrecked ship that has become a functional and safe leisure object.”




Berthier has sailed across the English Channel to London and has toured it around Europe.

Plenty of unwitting good Samaritans offer assistance presuming he’s sinking.
