Mercedes-Benz’s Style division recently invited a handful of journalists to the coast of Nice, to unveil its own luxury yacht, the Arrow460-Granturismo or “Silver Arrow of the Seas”. Built by Silver Arrow Marine, the luxury motor yacht measures 14 metres long and four metres wide, and can accommodate up to ten people. Power comes from two Yanmar 6LY3-ETP diesel engines good for 706 kW (960 hp) and a top speed of 40 knots (74km/h).
“The yacht embodies the Mercedes-Benz’s progressive, dynamic design philosophy of sensual purity on the water. Or, to put it another way, it is hot and cool in one, and stands for emotion and intelligence,” said Gorden Wagener, Vice President Design Daimler AG. “Together with Silver Arrows Marine we have managed to develop a totally new boat concept. By virtue of maximum variability, the yacht combines the advantages of an open boat with the generous interior and privacy of a cabin cruiser. It weds charismatic design with perfect functionality, much in the same way as is familiar from our road vehicles. As such, the ‘Arrow460–Granturismo’ is sure to cause a stir on the seas and at marinas throughout the world in the coming years.”
No official word on price , but reports say it will start at around $1.7 million USD.
