Silver Arrows of the Sea

ADVERTISEMENT

Silver Arrows Marine, a new company based in London, unveiled a new design of vessel yesterday, inspired and designed by engineers with Mercedes-Benz Style as well as naval architects and marine engineers. The project is under construction and is expected to launch in 2013.

The 14m boat took six years to design and promises to be “completely different” than other luxury boat, according to the launch announcement.

“A luxury car on the water,” Chairman Ron Gibbs said.

The vessel has its genes in the Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrows cars of the 1930s. Some of the people involved include Martin Francis, the architect who designed the hull of M/Y A and whose technique was used to build the glass pyramid at the Louvre in Paris; Tommaso Spadolini, who designed the first yacht to run at more than 70 knots; and Gorden Wagener, who is vice president of design with Mercedes-Benz.
