Silver Arrows To Launch Yacht With SmartGlass Technology


    Next spring, Silver Arrows Marine in conjunction with Mercedes-Benz Style, a design arm of Mercedes-Benz, will unveil a new yacht called the ARROW460 – Granturismo, featuring an SPD-SmartGlass electronically dimmable roof. The roof, which is supplied by licensee Vision Systems, will be able to be electrically raised, creating a ‘glass pergola’ effect on the yacht. First customer deliveries of this production yacht are planned to start in early 2016. The idea behind Mercedes-Benz Style is to combine the luxury, design features, and quality of their vehicles into other product areas such as eyewear, furniture, helicopters, leather and luggage, and motor yachts. The use of SPD-Smart technology is a result of the successful sales of the MAGIC SKY CONTROL option using SPD-SmartGlass. MAGIC SKY CONTROL is now offered on five Mercedes-Benz vehicles including the SLK, SL, S-Class Coupe, Maybach S600, and most recently, S-Class sedan. SPD-SmartGlass offers light and heat protection at the touch of a button, enhancing comfort for passengers of any yacht, automobile, airplane, home, or office.
