Mercedes-Benz Introduces First-Ever Motor Yacht


Luxury car manufacturer Mercedes Benz is pushing the envelope once again with the ultra sleek Arrow 460 Granturismo Edition 1. This time, it isn’t just another expensive vehicle, but it will be the company’s first-ever motor yacht.

Mercedes-Benz teamed up with yacht manufacturers Silver Arrows Marine to create the vessel. It’s set to market around $1.7 million (£1.2 million). The Arrow 460–Granturismo will make use of two Yanmar diesel engines at 480 horsepower each and will travel at a speed of 46 mph.

Mercedes-Benz is only planning to distribute ten of these vessels—one buyer from ten different countries. There is no word yet if the company is ever planning to mass-produce it in the future.

“By ensuring that the yachts all go to different countries, we can guarantee that just one individual in each country will be able to say, ‘I am the first captain of the first Silver Arrow of the seas,'” said Ron Gibbs, chairman of Silver Arrows Marine in an interview with Luxurious Magazine.
