With vast experience of motor yacht design, engineering and construction – and of owning and enjoying them too – the target was defined. “Giving shape to a boat was an exciting challenge for automotive designers like us – states Gorden Wagener, Chief Design with Mercedes -Benz. “Our task was to explore how to apply the Mercedes-Benz design language to the particular proportions and specific requirements of a boat. We wanted to create something special and what we have come up with is indeed unique. The Silver Arrow of the seas embodies pure emotion and stands for luxury, style and pleasure”.
Silver Arrows 460 Granturismo features radical solutions like the new hull design, automotive style, open plan cabin, hi-tech materials, the ‘terrace by the pool’ – and many others.
