Fake sinking boat prank - image

This boat looks like its sinking, but its not, its just a prank and 'art' . Looks like fun though, however real sailors wouldn't be impressed with the joke.

The boat has a built-in motor and is able to move around just like any other boat, albeit a boat that will draw a lot more attention than your standard dinghy.

It was created by artist Julien Berthier, and he's since taken it out to all sorts of places such as Canary Wharf in London and Normandy.

The floating sculpture is made from a large sailboat that has been modified to appear as if it is capsizing. despite its battered appearance the boat is fully functional and able to move around thanks to a built-in motor.

To create the piece a 6.5 meter yacht was cut in half and a new keel was added to allow the boat to remain upright in the sinking position. since its construction Berthier has taken the boat out on numerous trips inside harbors like canary wharf in London and in Normandy, France.
