“Giving shape to a boat was an exciting challenge for automotive designers like us. Our task was to explore how to apply the Mercedes-Benz design language to the particular proportions and specific requirements of a boat. We wanted to create something special and what we have come up with is indeed unique. The Silver Arrow of the seas embodies pure emotion and stands for luxury, style and pleasure.”
For more than six years I have dreamed of a new class of motor yacht. Today, as Silver Arrows Marine approaches its goal, I feel immensely privileged to lead the exceptional team who have shared my vision on this exciting journey. SAM people have known boats all their lives – experience that makes our joint venture with Mercedes- Benz all the more potent. It is a union where the highest standards of seaworthiness and marine comfort meet automotive style and technology at its most dynamic and sophisticated.
Ron Gibbs – Silver Arrows Marine Chairman
Silver Arrows Marine fills me with a sense of great pride. Pride in our people, and the way we work together. Pride in our partnerships. Pride in what we have already achieved in our ambitious challenge to develop a new icon of the seas. But I am as passionate about business as I am the sea, and so I feel very proud too of the opportunity I have had to develop a new business system, based on a network of excellence. It is my guarantee that what we deliver will be without peer.
Jacopo Spadolini – Silver Arrows Marine CE
I have been passionate about the sea ever since I was a child. It has been the soundtrack to my life. It is only on water that I feel truly at home –at one with a living environment of awesome beauty. Whether I am sailing across oceans, cruising in the Caribbean or in a shipyard supervising the build of a new motor yacht, the sea in all its forms is my way of life. Silver Arrows Marine therefore is not just the expression of a new boat and a new company. It is a very personal expression of my emotions, one that will leave an indelible wake in my life’s journey.
Paolo L. Bonaveri – Global Marketing and Communication Director
Every so often in life, if you are lucky, an opportunity comes along that embraces all one’s passions and skills. The perfect job. That is how Silver Arrows Marine is for me. I have a diversity of interests: the sea, of course (I was an officer in the Italian Navy), motor racing, publishing, journalism and my 20-year experience in international fiscal and corporate law. It all comes together for me at Silver Arrows Marine where my challenge has been to interpret the requirements of all members involved and structure the company accordingly. It is a challenge I relish.
Guido M. Pedone – CFO
The sea has always strongly attracted me.The eagerness of sailing whenever possible, combined with a triggering curiosity, has enriched my passion turning it into a profession. Boats have been my centre of gravity for the past years in all range of aspects, from the design, to the engineering, to the production and construction up until taking the command. Silver Arrows Marine represents the summary of excellence of all these aspects through our team and our partners. It is for me a pride and a privilege to have the opportunity of being part of the making of an outstanding product.
