Mercedes-Benz Introduces Luxury Yacht Arrow460 – Granturismo
Celebrating its world premiere on the Côte d’Azur, the Arrow460-Granturismo has embarked on its maiden voyage off the coast of Nice.
After the Arrow460–Granturismo has been unveiled at the 2012 Monaco Yacht Show as a futuristic concept, the luxury yacht designed by Mercedes-Benz Style has now become reality. Nicknamed “Silver Arrow of the Seas”, the 14-m-long yacht can accommodate up to 10 persons and combines the performance of Mercedes-Benz sports cars with unique innovations from the boat industry. Running on 2 Yanmar diesel engines with 480 hp each, the Arrow460-Granturismo has the advantages of an open boat as well as the advantages of a hull cabin cruiser in unique fashion, making it suitable for day trips as well as overnight stays on board.
“In developing the new motor yacht, we have transferred our expertise to the marine industry, creating something never seen before in the process. 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. 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.
