Part artwork, part boat – literally!

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.”
The designer and artist designed and built the floating installation in 2007. He named his creation Love Love.
