Mercedes-Benz Arrow460-Granturismo Is The Automaker’s Version Of A Luxury Yacht

Yes, the Mercedes-Benz Arrow460-Granturismo is a mouthful of a name for a car. Fortunately, it’s not one. Instead, it’s a luxury yacht developed by Mercedes-Benz Style that brings the automobile badge’s design language into an entirely new seafaring ride.

Created in partnership with Silver Arrows Marine, it’s a cabin cruiser that ensures passengers can party in the water without being exposed to the elements. Since being cooped up in a closed room doesn’t quite feel as luxurious, it comes with side windows and windscreens that can be retracted to give passengers the feeling of an open boat, without having the wind mess up their hair or the waves splash on their attires.

The Mercedes-Benz Arrow460-Granturismo that runs on two Yanmar diesel engines, which put out a total power of 960 horsepower – enough to send the 46-foot yacht running at speeds of up to 40 knots and a cruising speed of 30 knots when riding over calm water. Unlike conventional yachts, it comes sporting classic automobile proportions with a long foredeck, arched roofline, and a muscular hull serving as not-so-subtle nods to its automotive roots.

An open layout cabin comes with extendable beds and tables, either of which can be deployed as needed, with separate private bathroom and dressing room, so guests can clean up when they need to. Of course, luxury is a big part of the experience, so it comes with full air-conditioning and a high-end audio system, along with a mini "wine cellar" and ice machine to keep your parties oiled and running.

    I can assure you that the Mercedes-Benz Arrow460-Granturismo is out of my price range. My initial thought on this luxury yacht was that there was no deck on the front of the boat. I was disappointed, but then as I looked at the pictures more I fell in love with the sleek design of the Mercedes-Benz Arrow460-Granturismo. Man this thing looks great.

    I wish there was some pictures of the interior. The interior has got to look mazing considering what the exterior looks like. It is still a smaller yacht though so would be best for day trips or a couple of nights at most. You probably wouldn’t want to spend a week out in this, of course you may be wealthy and then you can just take it out for the day and then Dock it at Monte Carlo with all the other elegant yacht designs. Seriously, the Mercedes-Benz Arrow460-Granturismo would fit right in with all the high-end yachts in Monte Carlo.

    The Mercedes-Benz Arrow460-Granturismo even has a wine cellar! What a way to throw a party eh?

    I remember hearing about this a few years back. This is one of those products that many of us dream of having but in my opinion, it’s just over the top. For me, BMW just doesn’t “float my boat” (haha had to, sorry). I feel that the company is overrated and overpriced, but I always grew up in a family where Honda was where it was at. It’s difficult for me to imagine dropping insane amounts of money on a means of transportation when there are more affordable options that are still exciting and get the job done. I must say, I do like the design; it allows you to be completely enclosed but offers a fantastic view of the water. Pretty futuristic looking.
