Frank Gehry Unveils His First Ever Vintage Yacht

Full screen

Legendary architect Frank Gehry has taken his life’s work around the world alongside the most iconic monuments. At 86, the self-confessed yacht lover has finally graced his discerning eyes over one very special vessel.

In a first for the Canadian, Gehry has taken possession of an abandoned boat and remodelled it off a traditional larchwood, titanium and glass latticework construction. The yacht itself spans for a towering 32 metres and Gehry explains how “on a boat like this, it’s about romance and romantic encounters.”

“I never had the resources before, and once I did I was busy doing my buildings.”


The yacht features intricate lattice design work and carbon fibre in abundance. What does Gehry plan to design next? “We’ll do a spaceship,” he says.
