At the Monaco Yacht Show Mercedes-Benz has premiered two luxurious vehicles, both of which were are not meant to travel on land. For air travel, they have unveiled the final interior for their upcoming VIP aircraft, which is being created with Lufthansa Technik. For the water, there is the ARROW460 – Granturismo, which made its maiden voyage back in April 2016.
The Mercedes-Benz VIP Aircraft Interior
The cabin of this luxurious aircraft will surprise most, due to its futuristic and smooth design. Looking through the images of its cabin found below, you’ll see that Mercedes has created a cabin that is unlike any in the skies today. Smooth transitions connect the floor to the wall, and the wall to the floor, with the only visual separation between the difference in materials.
Area in the aircraft include a galley, kitchen, private room, bathroom, lounge, dining area and a bedroom. In the bedroom and bathroom there is an open-plan design that features a free-standing shower, complete with transparent walls. As for the furniture in each room, expect the finest of materials and the utmost comfort, as you’d expect from Mercedes-Benz. And, like the S-Class, this aircraft includes the Magic Sky tech in the panels, giving the passengers the ability to dim the windows from black to transparent.
“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.
ARROW460 – Granturismo Yacht
Thanks to a joint project between Mercedes-Benz and Silver Arrows Marine, the ARROW460 – Granturismo was created. This luxury and sporty boat acts like the AMG of the seas, combining power with luxury. The ten passengers that are able to fit in this boat’s cabin will be able to enjoy the view of the see with or without the wind in their hair. This is made possible through the side windows and windscreen that can be retracted.
Inside the cabin, passengers can enjoy Mercedes-Benz-level luxuries in the spacious interior. Due to its design, this boat is perfect for day cruises and even multi-day cruises– yes, a bathroom is included.
“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.
