The Ar 233 was a twin-engined flying-boat with room for ten passengers, it would have been powered by either two BMW 323 or BMW 801 engines.[1] A retractable tricycle landing gear would allow amphibious operation.[1] A mock-up was completed by Dewoitine in German-occupied France but the project was abandoned due to the Liberation of France in 1944.
