Abstract:Zinder is a small boat building and design company in the Netherlands. Zinder has one particular model of which seven were sold. In order to gain a larger market share, another model has to be introduced. I designed this model as part of my Bachelors degree. It is called: the Zinder 990. The main focus of the design was adding a useful addition to the boat which will set it apart from the competition. This unique selling point was deducted through scenario based design and from an interview with an owner of a Zinder 880. It was concluded that the most influential variable of boating and the boating experience is weather. The design concept tries to offer a functionality to the boat in the form of a hydraulic roof. This roof makes it possible for the boat to adapt to different types of weather. In addition, the boat has to differentiate itself from the competition through clever interior design. Zinder believes that the boating industry could learn a few things from the recreational vehicle industry. Therefore, the latter was researched and the results were taken into account for the design of the boats interior. This all was done within the parameters of the brand, to incorporate the 990 into the Zinder family.
