OP-8 Shark

OP-8 Shark


An ancient creature awoke re-incarnated in a metal entity. A manifestation of wild instincts, defined edges and the extraordinary sense of detail lend an iconic character to this design. The unique OP-8 SHARK aluminium recreational motorboat is a result of the unorthodox thinking of the young chief designer, Ehsan Aghdami. Emotion and logic, harmony and dynamism, manufacturability and aesthetics inspired by the shark, the “ruler of the seas”, are united together in a spectacular design.

Statement of the jury

The wholly aluminium sport boat is devoid of rounded contours, giving it a striking, distinctive look.
