The first ever motor yacht from Mercedes-Benz has hit the blue waters of the Côte d’Azur, aka French Riviera. The luxury motor yacht Arrow460–Granturismo designed by Mercedes-Benz Style has embarked on its maiden voyage off the coast of Nice.

Mercedes-Benz_Arrow_460_Granturismo_Edition_1Estimated to sail for a price of $1.7 million, the 14-metre long, 706 kW (960 hp) is nicknamed Silver Arrow of the Seas. It is conceptualized to combine the performance of Mercedes-Benz sports cars with unique innovations from the boat industry. Uniquely fashioned to combine the advantages of an open boat with those of a hull cabin cruiser, its crossover design results in a boat that is equally suitable for day trips and overnight stays on board.

Mercedes-Benz_Arrow_460_Granturismo_Edition_3Mercedes succeeds in bringing modern luxury, avant-garde style and comfortable elegance on the seas with the Silver Arrow of the Seas. Designed to cause a stir on the seas and at marinas throughout the world, almost everything about Arrow460-Granturismo is unique, from its concept to the smallest bespoke detail.

Spacious to  accommodate up to 10 persons, it features large side retractable windows and extendable tables and beds. The outcome of Mercedes-Benz’s first foray into the world of motor yachts also sails with a luxurious bathroom unit, dressing room, air conditioning system, high-quality audio system, along with a wine-cellar and an ice-making machine.
