Yanmar's six-cylinder 6LY3-ETP diesel engine was selected by Silver Arrows Marine to power its new 46-foot Arrow 460 Granturismo motoryacht, styled by Mercedes-Benz.

A pair of the 5.8-liter units, each delivering 480 hp, gives the pre-production yacht a maximum speed of about 38 knots and a speed of 26 knots for cruising.

The yacht, named Mercedes, is described by Silver Arrows as a complete reimagining of luxury yachts its size. It is the product of four years of development by Silver Arrows Marine, a UK yacht builder, in collaboration with the Mercedes-Benz Style group's Italian studio in Como.

Silver Arrows Marine chose two 5.8-liter, six-cylinder Yanmar diesel engines — each delivering 480 hp — for the yacht.

Yanmar is a technical partner in the project; naval architecture is by the Dutch studio Van Oossanen. Decision SA, part of the Swiss Group Carboman, built the prototype yacht.

"We know that Yanmar is a reliable company, with a philosophy that matches our thinking," Silver Arrows said in a statement. "The kaizen philosophy of continual improvement drives the strategies of both companies. Another very important aspect is that the after-sales and assistance provided by the brand can be found all around the marine world. The Yanmar service points are extremely efficient, with very skilled engineers."
