Greek Cypriot industrialist Dakis Joannou commissioned Italian designer Ivana Porfiri to create this luxury yacht in October 2005. Called Guilty, it features an external artwork by Jeff Koons and three decks of luxurious interiors, including white Corian floors, artwork from David Shrigley and many others, and statement pieces of furniture throughout.

The Postmodernist ethos of the project ties into the V&A's forthcoming exhibition, Postmodernism: Style & Subversion 1970-1990, which opens at the end of this month. Read Justin McGuirk's latest article for the Guardian, which considers the continuing relevance of the movement today, here.
