Mercedes has announced plans to introduce a luxury yacht at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.

Dubbed the "Silver Arrow of the Seas," the 14 meter (46 feet) long Gran Turismo combines the "typical design features of Mercedes-Benz passenger cars with innovations that were previously unknown in the boatbuilding industry."

The model was created with the assistance of Mercedes designers and promises to feature "innovative versatility and intelligent use of space." Mercedes also revealed the yacht is suitable for day excursions but also has sleeping quarters for an undisclosed number of people.

The boat will be built by Silver Arrow Marine and promises to be a "new class of motor yacht" for a "new class of owner."

A design study was recently presented at the Mercedes-Benz Style exhibition at the Porto Montenegro marina, so expect to learn more in the coming weeks.
