Silver Arrows Marine has agreed to a cooperative programme with Vancouver-based Blackfish Marine to ensure its luxury GT-inspired yacht is better represented in the region. Blackfish Marine is the leading luxury yacht sales and charter agent on the Pacific Northwest coast, a fast-growing yachting center that has long been an important focus for Silver Arrows Marine.
“The move into the Pacific Northwest coast is a bold step into the future, but the area has a great maritime history and a large and growing yachting community,” said Ron Gibbs, Chairman Silver Arrows Marin. “With its experience, knowledge, and host of innovative customer programs, Blackfish Marine is our ideal partner in the region and the perfect company to represent the ‘Mercedes S-Class of the seas’.”
Based in Vancouver, Blackfish Marine is where the charter services company can track back to 1982. The company extended its business to Seattle and has since grown into a one-stop luxury yacht shopping center offering a range of services including yacht sales, charter, island lodge services, and custom cruising trips.
“Blackfish Marine’s mission is to bring the highest yachting lifestyle to our clients,” said Jason Xiao, Chief Executive Officer Blackfish Marine.
The tie-up promises a host of customer-facing activities in the region with an innovative program, including VIP showcase events, now being finalized.
It is an exciting time for Silver Arrows Marine in other ways too, as product development continues at a fast pace. Designs for the first Arrow460-Cabrio – a unique new ‘convertible’ 14m motor yacht – are due to be revealed by the summer.
Just as with Arrow460-GranTurismo, the Cabrio embodies the Mercedes-Benz sensual purity design philosophy. Once again, the design is innovative, elegant, sporting, and introduces a new design language to the yachting industry. As with the GranTurismo, the Cabrio version will feature a wealth of innovative features, high technology and a contemporary take on modern luxury.
