The unique contemporary profile of superyacht Project Zeus is designed by René van der Velden to some very specific requirements from the owner. A fresh and bold approach to the modern classic look reflects a style called streamlining, which was very popular in the 1930s and 40s.

A streamliner is a vehicle or vessel given a specific shape that reduces air resistance: Examples include the famous ferry Kalakala and the record-breaking car Bluebird. This is the first time streamlining has been so clearly integrated into the design of a superyacht.
