Silver Arrows completes Granturismo

ADVERTISEMENT

London-based Silver Arrows Marine has completed sea trials on its new 14m Granturismo design being styled in collaboration with Mercedes-Benz and unveiled at the Monaco Yacht Show in September. Many of the data acquisition techniques used, including automotive-style data acquisition, have their origins in motor racing.

“Boats are not racing cars but to use F1-style telemetry for data logging makes a great deal of sense,” said SAM Engineering Director Giorgio Stirano, who has run Formula One motor racing teams. “With equipment such as accelerometers and gyroscopes, along with GPS positioning, we have been able to build up a good picture of the boat’s abilities.”

The prototype used in the sea trials is an open hull and lacks the superstructure of the finished yacht. Sea trials are expected to continue into the coming months.
