How do you combine Mercedes’ legendary styling with a modern, totally reinvented interpretation of a luxury motor yacht? The answer is this: the Silver Arrows Marine motor yacht, designed in collaboration with the Mercedes-Benz Style design team.
Scheduled to make its debut at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show this September, the Silver Arrows motor yacht is a project that’s taken six years to come to fruition. It’s been designed to fit as seamlessly as possible into its natural environment, with the intent being that it doesn’t simply use the environment, but rather it becomes part of it. The result is a motor yacht that brings to reality a variety of radically new solutions, including a stunning new hull design, gorgeous automotive inspired styling, an open plan cabin, extensive use of hi-tech materials, and much more.
In speaking on Mercedes work with Silver Arrows Yacht, Gorden Wagener, head of Mercedes-Benz design, had this to say: “Giving shape to a boat was an exciting challenge for automotive designers like us. Our task was to explore how to apply the Mercedes-Benz design language to the particular proportions andspecific requirements of a boat. We wanted to create something special andwhat we have come up with is indeed unique. The ŒSilver Arrow of the seas embodies pure emotion and stands for luxury, style and pleasure.”
