Mercedes-Benz Debuts a $1.7 Million USD Luxury Yacht

What was first a futuristic concept unveiled at the 2012 Monaco Yacht Show is now a marketable model ready for the public with Mercedes-Benz’s new Arrow 460 Granturismo Edition Yacht. Nicknamed the “Silver Arrow of the Seas,” this sleek, 14-meter-long (approximately 46 feet), 10-person capacity luxury motor yacht runs on twin Yanmar diesel engines with 480 horsepower and a top speed of 40+ knots. Large retractable windows come with windscreens and provide a full 360° view of your surroundings. The interior, which includes an upscale bathroom, a dressing room, a wine cellar, and an ice-making machine, comes equipped with high-quality audio systems and air conditioning. The inside is also fashioned from nubuck leather and eucalyptus wood paneling, with a blue and gray color palette that takes inspiration from the open sea. Take a look at the yacht design above, which was recently spotted in the French Riviera.

Only 10 of these have been made, with a limit of one boat per country. No official pricing has been announced yet, but rumors suggest s $1.7 million USD base price.
