Silver Arrows Marine in Conjunction With Mercedes-Benz Style Will Build a New Production Yacht Using SPD-SmartGlass

Research Frontiers Licensee Vision Systems Has Been Selected as the Supplier for This Marine Project   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 risen, 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 in the ARROW460 - Granturismo 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 superior light and heat protection at the touch of a button, enhancing comfort for passengers of any yacht, automobile, airplane, home or office.

To learn more about this project, please see Vision Systems' press release. Vision Systems will also be presenting its products at the 2015 Marine Equipment Trade Show or METS from November 17-19 in Amsterdam. METS is the world's largest marine equipment trade show with over 1,360 exhibitors from 40 countries.
