During the Monaco Yacht Show, one year after the presentation of the first design drafts, Mercedes-Benz Style and Silver Arrows Marine are presenting the final exterior and interior design of their new luxury motor yacht – the Arrow 460 – Granturismo.
As we all know, the aim of the joint project is to bring the hallmark design features of Mercedes-Benz automobiles next to the boat building industry – with the end result being a new luxury motor yacht.
“This new motor yacht with its emotional and high-tech features embodies our Mercedes-Benz design philosophy of sensual purity and is a perfect expression of modern luxury,” says Gorden Wagener, Vice President Design at Daimler AG. “Under the label Mercedes-Benz Style we develop highly exclusive design products beyond the automobile, thereby bringing our sensual, clear and progressive design idiom, into other spheres of life.”
“We have created something unique with the Arrow 460 – Granturismo. I am convinced that for many years to come the yacht will be an eye-catching addition to the seas and yacht marinas of the world,” says Ron Gibbs, Chairman of Silver Arrows Marine Ltd.
At the Monaco Yacht Show Mercedes-Benz Style and Silver Arrows Marine will present a two-metre long model and detailed renderings of the 14-metre long ‘Granturismo of the seas’. Silver Arrows Marine is also opening its order book for the Edition 1, a special limited-numbers launch edition to mark the arrival of the Arrow 460 – Granturismo.
The Arrow 460 – Granturismo is powered by two diesel engines developing 353 kW (480 hp) each. The yacht is being launched with the Edition 1 model – built as a limited edition of ten units. This exclusive version of the “Granturismo of the seas” can be ordered directly from Silver Arrows Marine at the staggering price of €1.25 million (plus VAT). The first units will be delivered to customers in early 2015.
