The sinking of the love-love boat

The sinking of the love-love boat

French artist Julien Berthier has designed this fully functional boat that by all appearances appears to be sinking. 

Called ‘Love-Love’, Berthier describes the boat as “... the permanent and mobile image of a wrecked ship that has become a functional and safe leisure object.” 

Having taken the boat on voyages across the English Channel to London, Berthier has apparently had his fair share of do-gooders coming ito his sinking rescue.

Watch the boat in action in the video below.
