Mercedes-Benz Style has launched a new concept motor yacht Arrow460–Granturismo named Mercedes. True to the tradition of the name it founds a completely new boat concept with its classic automobile proportions and the hallmark design idiom of sensual purity. The 14-metre long, 706 kW (960 hp) Silver Arrow of the Seas combines the performance of Mercedes-Benz sports cars with unique innovations from the boat industry.
The yacht combines the advantages of an open boat with those of a hull cabin cruiser in unique fashion. Its crossover design offers the ultimate in variability, resulting in a boat that is equally suitable for day trips and overnight stays on board.
Mercedes-Benz Style is synonymous for modern luxury and making it tangible beyond the world of automobiles. Since 2010, Mercedes-Benz designers working with selected partners have been developing exclusive products which have transported the high quality standards and unmistakable design philosophy of sensual purity into other mobility and lifestyle areas. As in vehicle development, they are guided by their passion for uniqueness.
The Silver Arrow of the Seas stands for modern luxury, avant-garde style and comfortable elegance. The yacht embodies the Mercedes-Benz’s progressive, dynamic design philosophy of sensual purity on the water. The yacht has generous interiors and privacy of a cabin cruiser. It weds charismatic design with perfect functionality, much in the same way as is familiar from their road vehicles.
Almost everything about Arrow460-Granturismo is unique, from its concept to the smallest bespoke detail. It is a motor yacht with a personality combining the best marine engineering with the inspired innovations and elegance that the world associates with the Mercedes-Benz name. By merging marine and automotive worlds, with their respective design language, technologies and ideas, this yacht sets a new standard among motor yachts unlike any other.
The luxury motor yacht can accommodate up to ten persons. The large side windows are retractable, and the windscreen can be raised. This means that passengers can sit comfortably in the interior while enjoying an all-round view and the feeling of sitting in the open. Tables and beds are extendable and therefore available as and when required. Superior comfort is assured by a luxurious bathroom unit and separate dressing room. As standard the yacht is equipped with every feature an owner might wish for. Apart from an air conditioning system and a high-quality audio system, it also has an ice-making machine.
Mercedes-Benz Style’s innovative aspirations also embrace the choice of materials. Wood serves to line the entire interior, rather than using this material as a conventional floor covering. As a result of this three-dimensional application of wood, the fine grain of the eucalyptus follows the overarching forms of the interior lining, underscoring the overall flow of the interior. The floor covering takes the form of an industrial, sustainable composite material featuring a specific flowing décor and a harmonious color combination.
