Not that I am of real nautical background, but before I would even entertain such a vehicle, I would have to see how it sits and runs in the water. The open front grill bothers me for starters.

Looks cool though and definitely unique!

I think it's a pretty safe bet that the grille is backed up by the front of the actual working hull, and continued floating should be no concern on reasonably protected water. That said, I've known some great boats in that size range, and whether viewed from the vantage point of a gull or a fish, none of them looked much like that....

Novel .... yes, but it would be worth a lot more if it were a car instead of a boat.

Now, let's see someone make a boat into a Mercedes ....

I can't imagine how strange it would be to take my Benz, sitting in the driver's cockpit, looking out over the steering wheel, and seeing water all around me. That carboat seems utterly surreal, to me! Very odd indeed, I don't know what to say,

A perfect boat for an MB owner indeed!

But I would rather stick an MB diesel in a real boat hull and put the three-pointed star emblem on it!
