ISA SILVER WIND
Consider this the Toyota Prius of superyachts. The Silver Wind can hit a top speed of 32 knots under traditional propulsion, but if you switch off the twin diesels and crank up the Rolls-royce Kamewa waterjets, you can cruise at eight knots while burning “just” 87 litres of fuel an hour. The result is lower emissions, lower fuel bills, lower maintenance costs, better reliability—and good cause to pull the cover off the sundeck, raid the champagne cellar and make a toast.
Strong diagonal lines run from the sundeck to the stern, creating an exterior that is as bold as it is elegant. This flair is mirrored with distinctive sweeping staircases.
The 44-metre Silver Wind can sleep 10 guests in five wellappointed cabins, and the cruising experience is aided by a crew of up to five. There’s a balance of well-lit indoor areas and spacious deck expanses, creating an open environment and panoramic views while maintaining all-important privacy for those on board.
Walnut, high-gloss ebony and rosewood rub up against subtly coloured upholstery from Armani/ Casa and Hermès. Lighting features and loose pieces come from Charles Paris and Fendi Casa. Lights, curtains, A/C and the Bowers & Wilkins audio gear can all be operated at the touch of an ipad.
Fixed-fin stabilisers and electric actuators make for perfect comfort at anchor and when enjoying the swimming platform.
The Silver Wind is for sale at US$26.3 million.
