The ARROW460-Granturismo, the result of an unique collaboration between Silver Arrows Marine, Mercedes-Benz and Esthec. This luxury motor yacht captures the design purity and dynamism of a Mercedes-Benz automobile. Such an innovative yacht requires an unique and revolutionary decking application: Esthec Nautical Decking. This environmentally friendly decking application combines functional benefits with unlimited customization possibilities in colour, patterns and special effects.
With its long foredeck, a flowing, arched roofline and a slightly descending rear, the ARROW460-Granturismo clearly links with the latest generation of Mercedes-Benz luxury cars. An innovative and luxury yacht like the ARROW460-Granturismo requires the most comfortable and innovative decking material available on the market. Silver Arrow and Mercedes Benz have chosen the smooth, seamless Esthec Nautical Decking as the sustainable and lightweight decking solution. The decking system is easy to maintain and remains colourfast for years. But furthermore Esthec Nautical Decking frees designers to create an entirely new aesthetics for luxury yachts. Nearly all colours are available, plain or multi-coloured, patterns can be created and special effects added. In this project a subtle pattern was chosen. The 3D pattern was specially designed in the experience & innovation center of Esthec.
