Mercedes-Benz is known for its luxurious cars but is also behind one of the most anticipated yachts this year at the Monaco Yacht Show.
On Wednesday, the German automaker debuted Edition 1 of its Arrow460-Granturismo yacht, a sleek-looking vessel that begins pricing at about $1.7 million.
The company initially showed off its yacht concept in 2012 but later worked with the yacht building company Silver Arrows Marine to turn the idea into a reality.
The two companies plan only to build 10 Edition 1 models of the yachts and aim to only sell one in each country, making the ship incredibly rare.
Here’s a closer look at some other unique features that make the vessel.
The vessel is nicknamed “Silver Arrow of the Seas” after a Mercedes race car called the “Silver Arrow” built in the 1930s.
The 46-foot yacht may be on the smaller side, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in the design.
From the side, the stylish yacht resembles a saloon-style car, similar to the Mercedes Model S-Class.
Its large side windows can retract, and the windscreen can be raised so that passengers can sit inside the boat while enjoying surrounding views while at sea.
With 960 horsepower, the yacht can travel at a top speed of 40 knots.
In total, the yacht can comfortably accommodate up to 10 people.
Beds and tables inside the yacht are extendable so that you can create more space when needed.
The vessel has all the modern amenities you’d expect in a luxury yacht, including air conditioning, a sound system, wine storage, and an ice maker.
Silver Arrows Marine will begin production of the Arrow460-Granturismo in the coming months. Deliveries are expected to occur in the second half of 2017.
