A year after showing off its extraterrestrial, 46.2-foot yacht concept, Mercedes-Benz Style and Silver Arrows Marine have a revealed a two-meter mock-up of the watercraft’s final exterior, along with detailed interior design renderings. Unveiled at the Monaco Yacht Show going on right now, the boat even has a name: the Arrow640 – Granturismo.

Other blanks have been filled in from last year as well: its design represents “sensual purity,” the interior is an open-plan concept for up to ten passengers with a dining table and bed that “slide into position” when either is needed, materials include nubuck leather and eucalyptus wood paneling set off by “sophisticated color combinations,” window glazing will control light penetration according to the sun’s intensity, and the decking is composed of “a high-tech synthetic material.” It will be powered by two diesel engines producing a total of 940 horsepower and will cost 1.25 million euros ($1.69M US). First deliveries are slated for 2015.

The order book for the Edition 1 version of the Arrow640 – Granturismo opens at the Monaco show, with the limited-to-ten series including everything but air conditioning and premium audio. You can expect it to cost more.

Besides the yacht, Mercedes-Benz Style will present its entire design portfolio on the Upper Deck Lounge, from the Eurocopter EC145 to its furniture line to a luggage collection that will go on sale later this year. A press release below has more info.
