The world’s most prestigious pleasure boat show, the Monaco Yacht Show, which attracts over 500 players in luxury yachting, will witness a revolutionary design this year. Mercedes-Benz Style joins forces with Silver Arrows Marine to unveil their 14-metre-long (nearly 46 ft) seagoing Granturismo. Being brought to live by renowned marine architects Martin Francis and Tommaso Spadolini of the UK-based firm Silver Arrows Marine, they yacht will be an extension of the German automobile brand’s long-standing design philosophy and superiority.
The stalwart companies are jointly working on the yacht’s innovative layout, use of space, exterior, interior and choice of materials and colour combinations. The yacht which will be launched within a year of the presentation of its design, will be ideal for a fun day out and overnight accommodation at the same time. Mercedes-Benz has been an undisputed leader of the roads, recently conquered the skies with the Eurocopter EC145 Mercedes-Benz Style helicopter in 2011 and is on its way to becoming the king of the seas as well.
