In the last episode of the special dedicated to powerboats and supercars we saw what happens when a Palmer Johnson meets the design of the Bugatti Chiron. And how is born, instead, a 14 meters with Mercedes lines? Instead, it took four years of development to see the first Silver Arrow of the sea. The Arrow460-Granturismo of Silver Arrows Marine is a 14 meters that perfectly embodies the style of the German house. The involvement of Mercedes-Benz Style who designed the lines made the difference.

“Together with Silver Arrows Marine we have developed a totally new concept of boat” commented Chief Design Officer Gorden Wagener Daimler AG, who added, “The Silver Arrow of the Seas embodies the design language of Mercedes-Benz by bringing the dynamic sensuality that distinguishes us. The Arrow460-Granturismo impresses for the personality both at sea and at the mooring “.

Powerboats and supercar, a common philosophy

The references to the models produced by the House of Stuttgart are more than a few. Starting from the profile – from which we highlight a game of concave lines and convesse that in addition to returning a dynamic design – is the true stylistic figure of Mercedes. In addition, the roof and the front uprights with the large front windscreen and the large side windows are another reference to the shapes and proportions of cars, for the first time introduced in the nautical world. “We did not want another boat, we wanted to develop a new concept” said Paolo Bonaveri, Director of Marketing and Communication at Silver Arrows Marine.

“With Mercedes-Benz Style”, added Bonaveri, “we worked on philosophy, on materials and on every single detail. This research and development work has been fundamental to create what the concept of Granturismo is for us “. “Many aspects and details of the Arrow460-Granturismo” comments Ron Gibbs, President of Silver Arrows Marine, “are unique, from its concept to the smallest detailm everything has been thought to live up to the name. It’s a motor yacht with a personality that truly embraces life at sea, combining the best naval engineering with the innovations and unquestionable elegance that the world recognizes to Mercedes-Benz.”
