Auto design that floats my boat…

Design mash-ups can be so much fun. Take this 1963 Corvette Stingray inspired boat design by Swedish designer Bo Zolland. He takes the split-back window design of the classic American muscle car and fuses it into a watercraft that manages to come off very futuristic and ultra luxurious at the same time. I am not sure of having the backseat passenger’s head just inches away from the exposed motor, but this is just a concept after all. Rumor has it, if you really want one of these made, Zolland will direct you to a Swedish boat manufacturer called “Stand-Craft” that will be glad to carve one out as is.

    That is awesome

    very pretty but like so many boats designed by “designers” its a washout. The heat would be immense, combined with the noise would give most people a real good case of sea sickness. I see what may be “t” tops, great, so where do they go? Ahhh concepts, so much fun, so easy, so what.

      Fair point. Though if this ran off a hydrogen cell motor there wouldn’t be a noise. And water contains hydrogen. Certainly not feasible right now, but it presents some interesting future possibilities.

    can the windows open? and do you have high durability windshield wipers? the spray would most certainly cover up the windshield! also, i suggest you cover up the motor with a hard casing. what if the driver has long hair and it gets caught in the motor?

  • Larry Kalina says:

    So windshield wipers for a boat windshield is a longshot? They are stadard equipmenton many boats. Also, many mid-engine cars have a firewall and window separating the passenger compartment from the engine compartment. Why all the negative comments? Designers normally are optimistic and solve problems. The reality is when some decent concept work shows up, the ego-driven design gods get a little intimidated. I wonder if any of the negative people have any experience with G3 surface modeling and setting up a decent render in any of the higher-end software.

  • Any inspiration that results in something astoundingly beautiful like this, should be welcomed with open arms!!!…

    Looks a little bit like a Glastron Scimitar. Drove once in the 80 with a guy who had one. The Engine is covered, but the “roof” kept up so many Noise, that was a loud ride, think that this concept would be probably even worse, the heat and the Noise would be to high to ride in it. Why he dont put the Engine all the way back and capsule it? Wipers are on the Scimitar not availb. and we didnt need it. Solve the Engine and build it 😉

  • Hello, i feel that i saw you visited my website thus i got here
