The perpetual sinking boat

By Guido Trombetta on 11:30 AM , ,


This boat may look like it's sinking fast, but don't worry, it's perfectly upright. That's because this boat, called "Love Love," was designed by artist Julien Berthier to look like it's in the process of going under!

The floating sculpture is made from a large sailboat that has been modified to appear as if it is capsizing. Despite its appearance the boat is fully functional and able to move around thanks to a built-in motor. To create it the artist cut in half a 6.5 meter yacht and added a new keel to allow the boat to remain upright in the sinking position. Since its construction Berthier has taken the boat out on numerous trips inside harbours like Canary Wharf in London and in Normandy, France.
