”ARROW460-Granturismo” Mercedes-Benz Style

<<

We are proud to announce our new collaboration with Silver Arrows Marine, creator of the unique Mercedes-designed ARROW460-Granturismo motor yachts.

Begüm Yachting and Silver Arrows Marine , have agreed a cooperative programme that will ensure the luxury GT-inspired yacht is better represented in the region than ever before. As a fast-growing yachting centre, Turkey has long been an important focus for Silver Arrows Marine.

MERCEDES-BENZ YACHTS ”ARROW460-Granturismo”

“Silver Arrow of the Seas”.

The luxury motor yacht “Arrow460–Granturismo” designed by Mercedes-Benz Style embarks on its maiden voyage off the coast of Nice. The first example of this new yacht model is named “Mercedes”, and true to the tradition of the name it founds a completely new boat concept. 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 has classic automobile proportions that bring the hallmark Mercedes design idiom of sensual purity onto the water in a highly emotional and dynamic form. The yacht also 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. It was developed together with Silver Arrows Marine.

Sculptural character.

The luxury motor yacht “Arrow460–Granturismo” can accommodate up to 10 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. As standard the yacht is equipped with every feature an owner might wish for. Wood serves to line the entire interior, rather than this material being used 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 luminous transmittance of the glazing can be controlled electronically, along the same lines as the Mercedes-Benz MAGIC SKY CONTROL technology; at the same time, the silver-shimmering glazing blends apparently seamlessly into the overall profile, as on the Mercedes-Benz concept vehicles F015 and Concept IAA. This avant-garde appearance underscores the sculptural and innovative character.
