An AirPlane and Yacht Combo for VIPs – Designed By Mercedes-Benz
At the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show, Mercedes-Benz revealed the final renderings for two of their newest non-land vehicles. The first is a private jet being built in partnership with Lufthansa Technik.
The interior design seems to take many cues from the S-Class. Lines continues from the floor, up through the walls and to the ceiling.
There are two showers onboard. One in the bedroom and one in the bathroom. All of the windows, including those in the living room, kitchen, and private room have Magic Sky windows similar to those in the S-Class that will allow passengers to dim the windows from fully transparent to pitch black.
“Together with Mercedes-Benz Style we plan to target this innovative concept at a private global clientele with a strong affinity for unique design. It is precisely customers from the VIP and VVIP sector who today want innovative and extraordinary design solutions for their aeroplanes. With our modular concept we offer the ideal solution for the most discerning demands, whether that be for private or business use,” said Wieland Timm, Vice President Sales VIP & Special Mission Aircraft at Lufthansa Technik AG, in a press release from Mercedes-Benz.
For those flying out to their private Yacht, Mercedes is creating the Arrow460 GT Yacht.
We’ve covered Mercedes inspired boats before, like the Cigarette Racing X AMG powerboat but the 460 GT is all about luxury just like the jet.
Alongside Silver Arrows Marine, the “AMG of the sea” is being created. 10 passengers can cruise at high speeds comfortably with “wind” as an option thanks to the retractable windscreen and side windows.
“By blending the maritime and automotive world with their respective design idioms, technologies and ideas we have created a new standard for motor yachts. The ‘ARROW460 – Granturismo’ blends maritime engineering artistry with charismatic design and perfect elegance, familiar from the world of Mercedes-Benz,” said Ron Gibbs, Chairman of Silver Arrows Marine, in the press release.
Sleeping areas and an onboard bathroom make it the perfect weekend cruiser to enjoy the waters.
The 460 is being built in Switzerland, and there’s already one testing in the waters.
